A delightful example of the Northshore built Southerly 38, featuring the variable draft swing keel which gives the freedom and versatility to sail in almost any waters. The light and airy interior gives an instant feeling of space, with well appointed accommodation throughout the yacht. The large aft cockpit features a generous seating area for both dining and entertaining.


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.
