This Southerly 42RST is a beautiful example of the popular 'Rob Humphreys' blue water cruising yacht. Its luxurious interior has all round vision from the raised saloon seating and navigation area, a large line galley and two very spacious cabins, both with ensures

- a great layout for extended living aboard.


The Southerly 42RST combines a fast, modern hull for outstanding performance, with twin rudders to provide excellent stability 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 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 of 8'11" makes for fast, serious blue water cruising. At the ‘touch of a button’ the keel can be raised to give a shallow draft of 2'9" - perfect for exploring coastlines and inland waterways.

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.
