Extensive Sea Trials for New Southerly 47

Extensive Sea Trials for New Southerly 47

25th August, 2011

The New Southerly 47 has undergone extensive sea trials in the Solent which have proved her to be a first class luxury cruiser. Comfortably maintaining 9 knots in 22 knots of wind, the yacht slipped easily through the water.

Garry Fry, commissioning manager comments "She was great fun ! Her tall rig and deep keel provided a combination of power and efficiency with minimum leeway, allowing us to point to 30 degrees. Her self tacking furling jib and large mainsail made sailing to windward a joy''

The spacious interior with panoramic views from the saloon and three cabin layout provides luxurious live aboard accommodation.

The first yacht is finished with a teak, traditionally styled interior and will be making its World Premiere at Southampton Boat Show in September. A modern styling for a more contemporary feel is currently in build and can be viewed in build, by appointment. Please contact us for more information.
