A really good example of her class, WHIMBREL has been sailed in the West Country since built. She has been carefully maintained and is perhaps one of the best examples around of a later Southerly 32. She has an extensive inventory and a number of extras professionally installed. The current owners are selling to buy a larger Southerly

  • Under sail, the Southerly 32 is fast and exhilarating - and a real pleasure to helm. The modern hull shape with plumb stem and long waterline length provides impressive sailing performance whilst the broad transom, twin rudders and Lewmar direct rod steering gives instantly responsive helming and exceptional directional stability - making the yacht easy to control.

  • The instant feeling of space inside the Southerly 32 is quite incredible, with excellent accommodation and good headroom, for a yacht of this size.

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.
