Nominated for European Yacht of the Year 2013, the Southerly 47 keeps the luxurious qualities and interior styling of the Southerly marque. This blue water cruiser is designed for a high specification, with easy handling, and can be sailed by just two people.
The tall fractional rig with self tacking jib and large mainsail provides powerful sailing performance. An aysmmetric gennaker can be flown from an optional bowsprit, for light wind conditions. A double headsail rig (self tacking jib and overlapping genoa) can be chosen as an option, for optimum sailing performance. As with all Southerly’s, the semi balanced twin rudders give instantly responsive steering and precise directional stability.
The mainsheet track is set across the coachroof with lines led aft to both helm positions, for easy handling, whilst keeping the cockpit free and uncluttered. The cockpit is secure and enclosed, with deep comfortable seating. A central table offers dinette facilities for guests whilst also providing a foot brace, when the yacht is heeled. Teak double seats to the pushpit provide further areas for socialising. The fold down transom door gives access to a large stowage area, ideal for a dinghy.
The interior space has been designed for maximum comfort and practicality with contemporary styling to create a luxurious feel throughout the yacht, and features a large raised saloon to port offering panoramic views with further seating opposite, at a lower level. The large open galley is well planned and positioned close to the companionway. Ample work surfaces, stainless steel appliances and plenty of stowage space is provided to enjoy living onboard.
A three cabin layout is standard, with a large master aft cabin for supreme luxury.
