Project: Camper & Nicholsons 60 Shamrock

Sometimes one can say a lot from what a boat model wants to represent by a builder from its name.  With the 60 Shamrock, Camper and Nicholsons Italian build line of traditional lobster cruisers and yachts is surely looking to customers with an admiration to the past.  For those who do not know Shamrock was Sir Thomas Lipton Americas cup challenge for a few decades 1899 till 1930, with five different Shamrock's being build and competing in the Worlds oldest sports challenge.  The Camper and Nicholsons 60 Shamrock presents itself as a three cabin traditional yacht with sport lines but yet still classic.  The main deck is a split level area and features a galley and two dinettes.  The aft deck features two L-shaped settee's looking to aft. Standard power is twin 1000hp Cat engines with estimated top speeds of 33 knots.
