With a workforce that has years of experience in building bluewater sailing yachts, Ocean Shipyard is proud to launch the new generation model of the Southerly 42.
This new style Southerly 42 is currently being built in our Southampton Shipyard, UK, and is due to launch Spring 2023.
The new Southerly 42 has all the elements you would expect of an ocean-going yacht, namely the tried and tested variable draft swing keel, twin helm, and rudder arrangement, and an all-new deck layout. An integrated bow sprit allows for a complimentary downwind sail. The opportunities are endless! From shallow anchorages that others can’t access, to drying out on the beach or a canal passage to the Mediterranean.
The key benefit of the variable draft keel is not just the obvious shallow water sailing opportunities, but also the great performance and comfort derived from the very deep high aspect ratio design
In practice the yacht is stiffer as a result of the improved righting moment, therefore carrying her sail area better than others, and carving her way efficiently to windward in a seaway.
Comfortable under sail or at anchor, you’ll be sure to gain maximum enjoyment whilst onboard with the spacious raised saloon, two separate cabins both with their own private heads. The single-piece deck saloon window arrangement offers unparalleled views and with the linear galley nearby, the Southerly 42 is designed and built to allow you to spend as much time on the water.
