Southerly 420 Launched

Southerly 420 Launched

14th March, 2012

The first New Southerly 420 has now been comissioned and extensively sailed in the Solent, proving to be a first class cruiser.

Her Rob Humphreys hull was fast and comfortable, offering outstanding performance and stability. The tall fractional rig and powerful mainsail kept the yacht sailing smoothly, whilst she pointed to 30 degrees. The optional double headsail rig with overlapping genoa and self tacking jib was perfect, providing the best of both sail plans in varying wind conditions for optimim performance.

The deep, centre cockpit provided secure seating, around the single helm station, with the glass windscreen giving excellent protection from the elements. The mainsheet track is within easy reach of the helmsman, which made sailing this yacht a real pleasure.

The first Southerly 420 will be at Northshore Shipyard for a short time before being handed over. To arrange a viewing or test sail, please contact us by email: or telephone: 01243 512611
