Southerly 42 RST - 2011 - Priced at £285,000 
This is an immaculately presented example of the Southerly 42RST model, a well proven, raised saloon cruising yacht with the swing keel variable draft — you can explore the places other similar sized yachts simply cannot go! 
The Southerly 42RST combines a fast, modern Rob Humphreys designed hull shape for good performance, stability and comfortable longer distance or blue water cruising. 
This two double cabin layout version offers comfortable accommodation for four to six, including a saloon berth conversion. Each double cabin features an en-suite heads compartment. 
This yacht has just been ashore in June 2024 for a full clean, polish and fresh antifouling, and the teak ring deck has been professionally refinished to give a natural finish – she looks great! 
These yachts are rarely available on the brokerage market and this represents a unique opportunity.

Heavy-duty GRP moulding, hand laid up to Southerly’s Nordseal laminating system incorporating multi-axial and unidirectional reinforcements. The keel box is an integral part of the hull lay-up and sandwich construction stiffening runs the entire length of the hull topsides. All main bulkheads are bonded into the hull at main lay-up stage along with a stiffening grillage of transverse frames and longitudinal stringers. The engine bearers are also an integral part of the hull structure. Solid GRP hull below the waterline. 
Hand laid up GRP. Sandwich construction. Heavily stressed areas are additionally reinforced with uni-directional glass reinforcement. The deck is bonded to the hull through the entire length and to all main bulkheads resulting in a strong and integrated unit. 
The fixed ballast is an iron casting which acts as a grounding plate and as transverse and longitudinal stiffening member for the keel assembly. The fixed ballast casting is fitted into a recess in the hull and secured with multiple stainless steel bolts. The aerofoil shaped keel is cast iron and incorporates a stainless steel pivot at the leading edge which connects to the grounding plate. The keel is raised and lowered by a hydraulic ram powered by an electrically driven pump, also equipped with a hand operated back-up. All hydraulics are easily accessible for maintenance. Keel control and position indicator panel are located at port helm station. A removable stainless steel pin is provided to enable the keel to be locked in the ‘up' position 
Manufacturer Provided Description 
The Southerly 42RST combines a fast, modern hull for good performance, with the stability and comfort 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 also boasts an impressive sail plan, for powerful windward performance. The tall fractional rig with swept back double spreaders, combines with a self tacking jib for easy sailing and a large mainsail with single line reefing, For off wind sailing a gennaker can be flown from a removable bowsprit. 
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 makes for fast, serious blue water cruising. At the ‘touch of a button’ the keel can be raised to give a shallow draft - perfect for exploring coastlines and inland waterways. 
The cockpit is a particular feature, with comfortable seating. The teak cockpit table offers dinette facilities, whilst also providing leg bracing and a convenient hand rail, when the yacht is heeled. The mainsheet track is located on the coachroof with lines fed back to both helmsman’s stations, allowing the yacht to be easily managed. 
Once you step inside, you enter a light and airy interior. The large raised saloon seating area provides a focal point for owners and guests, permitting comfortable dining whilst at anchor or moored, and taking full advantage of the all-round views. Two forward cabins are combined with a large double aft cabin, enjoying a centreline berth and en-suite facilities.
