Safe and Luxurious Bluewater Cruising

Performance, quality, and sheer luxury are rooted in the DNA of the Southerly 48. An imposing design beautifully styled, sleek, powerful, and thoroughly modern, her quality of construction and finish stands out amongst the mass of production boats. She is a testament to the proudest traditions of British luxury yacht building. An exceptional yacht that will be enjoyed and appreciated by the whole crew.

The Southerly 48, built with a variable draft swing keel, twin rudder arrangement, and substantial skeg, provides the impressive stability and performance required for a bluewater sailing yacht. Whilst at the same time allowing for exploring of anchorages and harbors no other boat this size could access, this is thanks to the just 1-meter draft when the keel is fully up.
