The Southerly 420 cruising yacht was designed by Rob Humphreys and the Northshore inhouse design team. With excellent blue water sailing performance from the same hull as the 42RST, the Southerly 420 centre cockpit cruiser offers superb family accommodation.

A modern well-balanced hull form with a long heeled waterline and a broad transom provides the Southerly 420 with thoroughbred performance and sea-kindly motion. The Southerly 420 can be easily sailed by two people and boasts an impressive sail plan. The tall fractional rig with swept back double spreaders, combines a self tacking furling jib and large mainsail with single reefing.


The steering is direct with minimum backlash with twin semi-balanced rudders to give instantly responsive steering and precise directional control. The propeller is protected by a substantial skeg that assists in stabilising the yacht when taking the ground. The bow thruster and stern thruster give the Southerly 420 exceptional low speed manouverability and control.

The centre cockpit offers comfortable seating around the single helm station. The mainsheet track is integrated into the aft cockpit coaming with the traveller control lines led to coaming self-tailing winches which also control the main and jib sheets. Secondary winches either side of the companionway handle the reefing and kicker functions making the yacht easily managed from the cockpit while underway. A teak table that folds against the pedestal when not in use offers alfresco dining facilities in the cockpit.

The highly developed Swing Keel design gives the freedom and versatility to sail in almost any waters. With the keel lowered, the variable draught of 8’11” (2.72m) makes for fast, serious passage making, with powerful windward performance. At the touch of a button, the keel can be raised, to give a shallow draught of just 2’9” (0.84m), perfect for exploring coastlines, shallow bays and inland waterways.

The spacious interior offers luxurious accommodation. The large saloon seating area provides a social point for owners and guests, with comfortable dining for six, whilst at anchor or moored. Large coach roof windows in the saloon are provide panoramic visibility taking full advantage of all-round views from the yachts communal area. Two good size opening forward coachroof windows provide exceptional natural ventilation. The linear galley has large working surfaces with abundant storage, a stainless steel fridge, freezer, double sink, and a fully gimballed cooker as standard. The light and airy master aft cabin boasts a large centreline double berth with seating both sides, with excellent headroom, plentiful stowage, superior ventilation and ensuite facilities. The large forward cabin is fitted with v berths, which convert to a double, with good storage, natural light and ensuite facilities.


This yacht has been lovingly cared for and maintained by its current owner.
