An ambitious plan to pilot a 27ft motor catamaran across the Atlantic has been shelved due to ill health
Boat designer Grahame Shannon’s bid to cross the Atlantic in a Motorcat 27 has been scuppered by ill health.
The original idea was to take the boat from Gibraltar to Newfoundland, via the Azores.
Grahame, whose company designed the 27-footer, is now planning a trip from Italy to Belgium via the French canal network.
The motor catamaran will then be loaded onto a container ship for the ride to Canada.
