Manufacturer Provided Description

The Southerly 42RST combines a fast, modern hull for good performance, with the stability and comfort for blue water cruising. The modern plumb stem increases waterline length and a broad transom maintains volume aft, for performance and interior space. Deck styling and a sociable cockpit layout with twin helm positions, has created one of the most comfortable and easy to sail blue water cruising yachts available.

The Southerly 42RST also boasts an impressive sail plan, for powerful windward performance. The tall fractional rig with swept back double spreaders, combines with a self tacking jib for easy sailing and a large mainsail with single line reefing, For off wind sailing a gennaker can be flown from a removable bowsprit.  

The Southerly 42RST features the highly developed Swing Keel which gives the freedom and versatility to sail in almost any waters. With the keel lowered, the deep draft makes for fast, serious blue water cruising. At the ‘touch of a button’ the keel can be raised to give a shallow draft - perfect for exploring coastlines and inland waterways.

The cockpit is a particular feature, with comfortable seating. The teak cockpit table offers dinette facilities, whilst also providing leg bracing and a convenient hand rail, when the yacht is heeled. The mainsheet track is located on the coachroof with lines fed back to both helmsman’s stations, allowing the yacht to be easily managed.

Once you step inside, you enter a light and airy interior. The large raised saloon seating area provides a focal point for owners and guests, permitting comfortable dining whilst at anchor or moored, and taking full advantage of the all-round views. Two forward cabins are combined with a large double aft cabin, enjoying a centreline berth and ensuite facilities.
