Southerly 38

Southerly 38 - Equilibrium

This yacht is in very well cared for condition and is a credit to her owner.

The benefits of owning this attractive yacht include having more interior space below decks than most yachts of this size and a truly amazing aft cabin. The finish below decks is excellent.

The cockpit is superbly designed, giving safe seating when sailing and is perfect for after sailing social and dining activities.

Her sailing performance is excellent and others of her class have cruised extensively and even won their class in the ARC Trans Atlantic event. She carries little or no weather helm when heeled and is very responsive. Her sail carrying ability is very good making her a safe yacht that be cruised seriously if required.

The Southerly 38 has a swing keel system and can be lifted at the touch of a button. You will be able to explore rivers and anchorages where a fin keel yacht dare not go. With the keel raised, she only needs 2' 8" of water to float and can dry out upright on her grounding plate.

We would definitely recommend you inspect this yacht.
