A lovely example of the variable draft Southerly 42RST, built by Northshore Yachts at the yard in Itchenor, Chichester. The vessel has had one owner from new and has the alternative 3 cabin layout, which is better suited to cruising with family and friends.


The Southerly 42RST combines a fast, modern hull for good performance, with the stability and comfort for blue water cruising. The modern plumb stem increases waterline length and a broad transom maintains volume aft, for performance and interior space. Deck styling and a sociable cockpit layout with twin helm positions, has created one of the most comfortable and easy to sail blue water cruising yachts, available.

The Southerly 42RST also boasts an impressive sail plan, for powerful windward performance. The tall fractional rig with swept back double spreaders, combines a self tacking furling jib (for easy sailing) and large mainsail.

The Southerly 42RST features the highly developed Swing Keel which gives the freedom and versatility to sail in almost any waters. With the keel lowered, the deep draft makes for fast, serious blue water cruising. At the ‘touch of a button’ the keel can be raised to give a shallow draft - perfect for exploring coastlines and inland waterways.

The cockpit is a particular feature, with comfortable seating. The teak cockpit table offers dinette facilities, whilst also providing leg bracing and a convenient hand rail, when the yacht is heeled. The mainsheet track is located on the coachroof with lines fed back to both helmsman’s stations, allowing the yacht to be easily managed.

Once you step inside, you enter a light and airy interior. The large raised saloon seating area provides a focal point for owners and guests, permitting comfortable dining whilst at anchor or moored, and taking full advantage of the all-round views.

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.
