My wife and I will always be pocket cruisers at heart, having spent our first 3 years of marriage cruising the Pacific in a small sailboat. Our Shannon 28 (Tiny Bubbles II) has been maintained to the highest standard. We have prepared her for long range cruising, and we have sailed her up and down the coast of Maine for the past 3 summers. We are now a family of 5, and she only sleeps 4 comfortably, so we are looking to sell in order to buy a larger vessel. She has spent her entire life in the northeast, so she is still a young boat. The cockpit has an awning with mosquito screens for bug free summer nights. She also comes with a fantastic, canvas winter cover, for easy winter storage. Please contact me for more information, or to arrange a visit.

The Shannon 28 remains one of the favorite classic models of the Shannon line. Every conceivable item, from hull design to the layout of the galley dish locker, was incorporated to produce the finest yacht possible.
The interior of Tiny Bubbles II is finished in handcrafted teak in a satin finish. The sole is teak and holly. The interior is configured in the highly desired Shannon "B" layout with wrap-around main cabin settee.
Starting forward, there is access to the anchor locker. Next is the double V-berth with open shelves to port and starboard and storage under. Just aft of the V-berth are settees port and starboard with a centerline drop down, teak table. The settees slide inboard to form two more berths. These berths are equipped with lee cloths for secure offshore sleeping. Interior cushions are navy blue Sunbrella fabric, with ripstop nylon covers for protection. Outboard of the settees, port and starboard, are two enclosed louver-door lockers and open shelves. Aft of the port berth is a hanging locker, followed by an enclosed head area.
The head includes two medicine cabinets, wet hanging locker and hamper. Plumbing includes a stainless steel sink and shower, both with hot and cold pressure water, a Wilcox-Crittenden marine toilet (all new gaskets and valves 2014) with holding tank and direct discharge seacock.
Opposite to starboard is the well-appointed galley. The stainless steel sink is forward, served by hot and cold pressure water with additional manual fresh water pump. The two-burner propane gas stove with an oven is amidships and the large (6 cu ft) icebox is aft. There are numerous lockers for storage and a unique folding counter extension to left of sink, knife rack and spice rack. Six bronze opening ports with screens offer good ventilation. Double hinged forward cabin hatch and Bomar overhead hatch both with teak framed screens.
