Built exclusively for the Emerald Star line on the river Shannon these spacious cruisers were used in the hire fleet, transferring to Le Boat when they took over the business in 2007. Designed to maximise accommodation, the Shannon class could sleep up to nine people if the saloon was also used.
The master cabin forward has a large central double berth, with its own large shower and toilet, whilst a further double and separate twin cabin aft also benefit from ensuite facilities. A single cabin is tucked under the helm to port and a further double can be made from the convertible settee in the wheelhouse/saloon. There is an interior helm in the wheelhouse/saloon and another on the flying bridge.
All boats were fitted with a single 75hp Perkins 4236/M90 giving a comfortable river cruising speed of 7 knots.
