A prime example of a Southerly 115 series I, “GIGI of TOLLESBURY” was built in 1985 at the Northshore Shipyard, Itchenor within the surroundings of the beautiful Chichester Harbour. The large centre cockpit provides both comfort and safety for the crew members, with the cosy yet spacious interior layout being impressive for a vessel of this size, making clever use of the available space. With its variable draft Southerly swing keel enabling her to reach harbours and creeks that deep keel yachts can only dream of, the Southerly 115 has proved to be many people’s idea of the perfect cruising yacht.

Just back across the Channel from the canals of northern France, this much-loved Southerly 115, which was built for a film producer, is now ready to be the star of your vlog or new adventure! Update and improve her, or just get sailing and carry on where her current owners – who are selling after COVID-19 and health problems dashed their plans – have left off.

Designed by Dick Carter & Northshore






Hull and superstructure are heavy duty hand lay-up GRP mouldings. In the hull, woven rovings and chopped strand mat are used in combination, with thickness increasing progressively towards the keel area. The deck is of a sandwich type construction using balsa core stiffening in walking areas with stress areas, such as winch plinths, reinforced with plywood infill. Bulkheads are glassed in, and the entire deck is bonded to the hull resulting in a strong and integrated unit. The interior joinery is of teak and teak faced plywood, built onto GRP base modules which are also “glassed” into the hull

  • Hull colour: White

  • Deck colour: White

  • Boot-top and style: Blue


The cast iron grounding plate is bolted into a recess in the hull acting as transverse stiffening in way of the keel slot and protecting the hull when taking the ground. The aerofoil swing keel is cast iron with a stainless steel pivot fitting into a substantial boss at the forward end of the grounding plate. The swing keel is raised by an electrically operated hydraulic system with a single ram, which is attached to the swing keel by a pulley system.
