The Southerly 115 centre cockpit has outrivalled many yachts of her size. 

The current owners have sailed widely in the South of England and the English Channel with her,

including exploring the North Brittany coast and the Channel Islands. The purchase of a larger

Southerly 135 forces the sale of this highly desirable boat. She is ready for new owners to sail

away and start their adventures on her, she is in excellent condition with no work needed.


MOONSHADOW is a lovely example of the renowned Southerly 115. Owned for many years by the

founding editor of Sailing Today magazine, she is equipped with many extras and appeared in

numerous articles in the magazine. She is a very well cared for boat.


Moonshadow provides comfortable accommodation for up to eight people but can easily be sailed by just two.

The lifting keel, fully refurbished in 2015, allows to explore places that are not accessible by other

yachts, allowing you to find the quietest anchorages and prettiest coves. She has been with the

current owners for the last seven years and has been much improved by them, with the saloon

being re-upholstered, new cockpit cushions and a new central heating system fitted.
