This well appointed Southerly 38 is ideal for both the blue water and coastal sailor. Her variable draft swing keel offering the best of both worlds with a deep draft of 2.59M for fast, serious blue water cruising and, with the keel raised to a shallow draft of 0.82M, she is perfect for sailing shallow waters. Down below in the well appointed accommodation, the interior offers the feeling of spaciousness that is a surprise for a yacht of this size. "Chantelle" comes with a high level of equipment and electronics and is ideally suited to long term cruising.


The Southerly 38 boasts an impressive sail plan for powerful windward performance. The Selden tall fractional rig with swept back double spreaders, combines a self tacking furling jib and large mainsail with single line reefing. For off wind sailing an optional gennaker can be flown from a removable bowsprit.

The aft cockpit offers comfortable seating around both helm stations with space for full instrumentation. The mainsheet track is located on the pilot house coachroof with control lines fed back to both helmsman's stations, allowing the yacht to be easily managed. The steering is direct with minimum backlash with semi-balanced twin rudders to give instantly responsive steering and precise directional stability.

The forward part of the cockpit is wide with generous seating for socialising. A teak cockpit table with fold down leaves offers dinette facilities, whilst also providing a foot brace and hand rail, when the yacht is heeled.The transom is open with integral steps to give easy access to the cockpit. A telescopic bathing ladder conveniently folds away when not in use.

Once you step inside, you enter a light and airy interior. The pilot house windows in the raised coachroof provide panoramic views, giving an instant feeling of space. Partially reflective tinted glass gives privacy whilst also deflecting the heat from the sun's rays and opening hatches provide cross ventilation for warm weather.

There is well appointed accommodation with good headroom throughout. The lower saloon seating area provides a focal point for owners and guests, permitting comfortable dining. The open galley is well equipped and enjoys good all round views. Large work surfaces, a fully gimballed oven, stainless steel twin sinks, a top loading stainless steel fridge and plenty of stowage provides excellent facilities for entertaining in style.

The chart table is in the proven, high level position for good visibility and easy communication with the cockpit. The aft cabin is a particular feature on a yacht of this size, and boasts a large centreline double berth with seating to each side, plenty of stowage and ensuite facilities. The forward cabin has good headroom with twin v berths that can convert to a double berth. There is plenty of natural light and ventilation, combined with ample stowage, and ensuite facilities, to make living on board extremely comfortable.

The fixed ballast is an iron casting which acts as a grounding plate and astransverse stiffening for the keel unit. It is fitted into a moulded recess in thehull in the 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 pump, fitted with a manual back-up. All hydraulics are easily accessible for maintenance. The keel control is fitted at the helm pedestal with a gauge showing the keel position. A removable stainless steel pin enables the keel to be locked in the “up” position.
