The new flagship of the Southerly range, the 590 combines innovative design, powerful sailing performance, superior build quality and luxurious accommodation. This ultimate bluewater cruiser offers the very best in cruising yacht design.
The hull is characterized by a long waterline, fine entry and beam carried aft to ensure the highest degree of performance, comfort, stability and safety. The stylish lines of the coachroof exude sophistication and elegance.
The tall, powerful rig with swept-back spreaders keep the yacht sailing fast in all weather conditions with minimal effort: the new Southerly 590 is designed for easy handling and can be sailed by just two people. The double-headsail rig is suitable for most wind conditions; the self-tacking jib allows you to sail easily on short tacks without any effort–ideal for coastal cruising. The overlapping genoa enhances upwind performance in light air, and together, the double headsail is perfect for downwind tradewind sailing. An asymmetric gennaker for off-wind sailing can be flown from a hydraulic retractable carbon bowsprit. In-boom furling is standard, with in-mast furling or slab-reefing available as an option. Combined with the unique Swing Keel, with its deep-draft performance and shallow-draft freedom, the new Southerly 590 is in a class of its own.
Interior layout options for three or four cabins, including garaging for a Williams Turbojet 285 can be chosen. The Southerly 590 is built in excess of LLOYDS and conforms to CE category A.
