The Sea Shanty 1600
Whilst we love life aboard, we also miss our toys and comforts, pets, family and space whilst cruising. We like to keep active and felt that a large seaworthy platform with simple but stylish accommodation and a large outdoor area was very desirable. So the design evolved. Where the Ferry needed decent displacement to carry 75 passengers the Sea Shanty needs the displacement for home comforts plus fuel and water for extended ocean passages. As a passage maker, speed was moderated to a comfortable mile eating 12 – 16 knots and a bar crossing sprint of up to 20 knots.
