'Round the World' sailor, Sir Robin Knox-Johnston presented the 'WORLD PREMIERE' of the new Southerly 57RS at the Southampton Boat Show. International Superyacht designer, Ed Dubois, also flew in from overseas to attend the launch.

After a brief welcome from Southerly Sales Manager, Ben Davies, Sir Robin introduced the stunning new yacht to the press and christened Tristan B with a bottle of champagne.

Sir Robin praised Northshore for its achievement in building such a prestigious yacht, and also for its commitment to supporting the British Yacht building industry.

A champagne toast and buffet was enjoyed by the yachting press and media, before viewing the interior styling. Many claimed the Southerly 57RS to be 'the best boat at the show'.
