Under sail, the Southerly 32 is fast and exhilarating - and a real pleasure to helm. The modern hull shape with plumb stem and long waterline length provides impressive sailing performance whilst the broad transom, twin rudders and Lewmar direct rod steering gives instantly responsive helming and exceptional directional stability - making the yacht easy to control.

The instant feeling of space inside the Southerly 32 is quite incredible, with excellent accommodation and good headroom, for a yacht of this size.

Great performance, self tacking jib for easy sailing, comfortable cockpit and the instant feeling of space inside the Southerly 32 is quite incredible, with excellent accommodation and good headroom for a yacht of this size. As with all Southerlys, the yacht will also dry out and sit up when the keel is raised.

Hand laid GRP sandwich construction using balsa core stiffening with plywood in high stress areas where fittings are positioned.

The fixed ballast is and iron casting which acts as a grounding plate and as transverse stiffening for the keel unit. It is fitted into a moulded recess in the hull area of the keel box with stainless steel fastenings. The aerofoil keel blade is cast iron and incorporates a stainless steel pivot at the leading edge. Variable draft is achieved by raising and lowering the blade with an electrically driven hydraulic pump, fitted with a manual back-up. All hydraulics are easily accessible for maintenance.
