New Southerly 535 by Dubois in Build

25th April, 2012

Following the success of the Southerly 57RS, superyacht designers, Dubois Naval Architects have been commissioned to work alongside the Southerly design team, to create the new Southerly 535. Innovative design, sleek styling, powerful sailing performance, superior build quality and luxurious accommodation are all hallmarks of this superb yacht.

The New Southerly 535 is designed for easy handling, and can be sailed by just two people. The tall powerful rig with swept back spreaders will keep the yacht sailing fast in all weather conditions, with minimum effort. The double headsail rig is suitable for most wind conditions and sailing environments; the self tacking jib allows you to sail easily on short tacks without any effort - ideal for coastal cruising. The overlapping genoa enhances upwind performance in light airs, and together, the double headsail is perfect for down wind trade wind sailing. An optional asymmetric gennaker, for off wind sailing, can be flown from a bowsprit. Slab reefing is standard, with In mast or In boom furling, available as an option.

The lift keel is seen to be the perfect compliment to a blue water cruiser. Offering a deeper draft than most, for sailing offshore, whilst having the flexibility to cruise shallow waters anywhere in the world with the draft reduced to just a few feet. This has the added benefit of enabling a yacht of this size to find shelter in remote places from heavy weather and storms, by getting closer inshore and mooring in anchorages inaccessible to fixed keel yachts.

The first Southerly 535 is currently in its development stage, due for a build completion in Spring/Summer 2013. If you would like more information on the new Southerly 535, please contact us on +44 (0)1243 512611 or email: sales@southerly.com
