The Southerly 42RST combines a fast, modern hull for good performance, with stability and comfort for blue water cruising. The modern plumb stem increases waterline length and 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 east to sail cruising yachts available. This yacht has a very high equipment specification and had an extensive refit at Northshore in 2018 and is kept in immaculate condition by the current owner.


The Southerly 42RST is designed by Rob Humphreys, Stephen Jones and In House Design office. It can be easily sailed by two people and boasts an impressive sail plan with tall fractional rig, swept back double spreaders, large mainsail with single line reefing and a self tacking furling jib.

The aft cockpit offers comfortable seating around twin helm stations. The mainsheet track is located on the pilot house coachroof with control lines fed back to both helm 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 offers dinette facilities, whilst also providing a foot brace when the yacht is heeled.

The spacious aft cabin boasts a large centreline double berth with seating both sides, plentiful stowage and ensuite facilities. The large raised saloon seating area provides a social point for owners and guests, permitting comfortable dining for eight, whilst at anchor or moored, and taking full advantage of the all-round views from the pilot house windows.

The linear galley has good large work surfaces with lots of storage, a stainless steel fridge, freezer and fully gimballed cooker with grill and oven as standard.

The large forward cabin has v berths with an infill to convert to a double and also enjoys ensuite facilities including a separate shower.

The highly developed Swing Keel design gives the freedom and versatility to sail in almost any waters.

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.
