46' Shannon Defiance 2013



The Shannon 46 Defiance has proven to be a excellent economical downeast style/trawler cruising at 10 MPH and burning less than 4.5 GPH yet offering a top speed of 15 KTS at full throttle. 

Sugar has had great ownership with excellent maintenance and up grading. She is an innovative yacht with an advanced drive system. The primary propulsion is a single/shaft drive 600 hp Cummins QSC 8.3L common-rail diesel and a secondary "Get Home" system with a single 200 hp Cummins QSD 2.2 driving two hydraulic saildrives.

Sugar is built to a very high standard by Shannon Yachts which is best known for their long line of high quality, serious blue water sailboats.  Her interior joinery is high gloss cherry throughout with a solid varnished teak and holly cabin sole. The low maintenance exterior has easy access to wide side decks through the pilothouse door or the large cockpit, excellent swim platform and spacious foredeck. Below there is a two stateroom layout, large head compartment w/separate shower stall, galley down, excellent visibility from the helm and a comfortable salon. Salon access to the cockpit via a beautiful SS sliding glass door.

Sugar offers great cruising comfort underway, dockside or at anchor.  With her fuel economy at trawler speeds, shoal draft with protected running gear, low air draft, and virtually new Walker Bay RIB on the cabin top w/electric davit, she is an excellent choice for someone looking for an extended coastal cruiser or cruising America's great loop.


Sugar’s interior accommodations are bright and airy with excellent visibility from the salon and helm station.  The glossy varnished cherry joinery and varnished teak and holly cabin sole give her the warm and comfortable feeling of a proper cruising vessel. Her two stateroom layout, u-shaped galley, and head compartment with separate shower stall offers comfortable cruising accommodation for owners and guest.

Entering from the cockpit through a stainless steel framed sliding glass door, you enter the main salon. There is a full length L shaped settee to port with a high low table, opposite to stbd there are two chairs that are fastened to the cabin sole with large thumb screws to keep them secure in a seaway. The helm is forward to starboard with excellent visibility and two beautiful dark blue leather Stidd captain helm chairs and a pilot house door to the wide weather decks.  The port side U-shaped galley is down two steps with excellent galley storage and large counter top.  Forward to starboard is the guest cabin with two single berths and opposite to port is the spacious head compartment with separate shower stall and privacy door from the passageway. The owner's stateroom is forward with a queen size centerline berth and private access to the head compartment.
