1981 Shannon 38

Seattle, Washington, United States


"Walter Schultz (the designer and builder of this beautiful boat) is one of the last of a wonderful breed-the complete boatbuilder. He designs boats, invents rigs, invents hull shapes, and then, unlike most others who work only on paper or computer, he takes saw and rasp and builds a half-model. And then he builds the real boat-always interesting and invariably one of the world's best yachts.  . And like so many Shannon ketch owners today, you too will fall in love with this stunning yacht."


'Mai Nu Toi' especially unique, she has been with one family since her first splash in 1981, and was a cover yacht on 'Cruising World'  magazine. Lovingly cared and maintained after, this classic beauty is fully modernized and will gather a crowd at any marina she is moored. Come see her now at Shilshole Marina, Seattle
