Shackleton is constructed and finished to a very high standard; she combines a traditional looking exterior with a stylish modern interior, and incorporates the latest technology and many innovative features to make life on board a real pleasure.
Shackleton was voted “Favourite Boat” at the 2014 Crick Boat Show.
Shackleton is built on a Tyler Wilson shell with a Josher-style bow. Grey panels with black borders and cream coachlines give her a traditional theme; brass mushroom vents and fairleads continue this. The portholes also look traditional, however they are anything but – made by Channelglaze they are double-glazed and open fully; Shackleton is the first boat to use them. There are external storage lockers both sides of the deck and the stern, and a locker across the well deck gives access to the bow thruster and the gas locker in the nose.
External lighting is provided by under-gunwhale LED lights and brass lighting on both decks; these are double switched internally and externally. There are two self switching shoreline points, one at the bow and one at the stern.
Internally Shackleton has tongue and groove below the gunwhales and painted sides above; all fixed furniture is solid oak and internal lighting is touch controlled.
