This Southerly 38, built 2009, has been in the same ownership since new and has only been lightly used. Moulded with Ivory white hull and deck. Finished with American cherry interior this modern Steven Jones designed swing keel yacht offers very comfortable and spacious accommodation for two couples both with en suite toilets and showers. In addition there are two single berths in the main saloon. This yacht is fully equipped and has many extras to upgrade her from standard specification


The Southerly 38 boasts an impressive sail plan for powerful windward performance. The Selden tall fractional rig with swept back double spreaders, combines a self tacking furling jib and large mainsail with single line reefing. For off wind sailing the gennaker can be flown from the removable bowsprit.

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.


Hull, keel and rudders have Coppercoat™ antifouling system applied
