About this Southerly 38


The benefits of owning this attractive yachts include having more interior space below decks than most yachts of this size and a truly amazing aft cabin. The finish below decks is excellent. The cockpit is superbly designed, giving safe seating when sailing and is perfect for after sailing social and dining activities.

Her sailing performance is excellent. She carries little or no weather helm when heeled and is very responsive. Her sail carrying ability is very good making her a safe yacht that can be cruised seriously if required.

The Southerly 38 has a swing keel system and can be lifted at the touch of a button. You will be able to explore rivers and anchorages where a fin keel yacht dare not go. With the keel raised she only needs 0.82M of water to float, and can dry out upright on her grounding plate.
