An opportunity to own one of the few Southerly 420 cruising yachts built by Northshore Yachts Ltd. This fine example has outstanding sailing performance with easy handling from the centre cockpit. The spacious interior is fitted out to a very high standard and comes with many extras fitted and is well equipped for blue water cruising.

Manufacturers Description

The Southerly 420 centre cockpit, blue water cruising yacht, designed by Northshore and Rob Humphreys can be easily sailed by two people and boasts an impressive sail plan. The tall fractional rig with swept back double spreaders, combines a self tacking furling jib and large mainsail with single line reefing,  and a 110% Genoa with tracks

A modern well-balanced hull form with a long heeled waterline and broad transom provides the Southerly 420 with thoroughbred performance and sea-kindly motion. The steering is direct with minimum backlash with twin semi-balanced rudders to give instantly responsive steering and precise directional control. The propeller is protected by a substantial skeg that assists in stabilising the yacht when taking the ground. The bow thruster gives the 420 exceptional low speed manoeuvrability and control.

The centre cockpit offers comfortable seating around the single helm station with space for full instrumentation. The mainsheet track is integrated into the aft cockpit coaming with the traveller control lines led to coaming self-tailing winches which also control the main and jib sheets. Secondary winches either side of the companionway handle the reefing and kicker functions making the yacht easily managed from the cockpit while underway. Coaming mounted winches easily accessible from the helm are part of the optional genoa package which includes tracks on the side decks. A teak table that folds against the pedestal when not in use offers alfresco dining capabilities in the cockpit. The stylish transom features a teak-decked swim platform with integral telescopic bathing ladder for water access, a fresh water shower and moulded teak surfaced steps to the aft deck.

The spacious light and airy aft cabin boasts a large centreline double berth with seating both sides, plentiful stowage, superior ventilation and ensuite facilities. A separate shower to ensuite facilities provides for added comfort. The large saloon seating area provides comfortable dining for six. Large coach roof windows provide panoramic ­visibility taking full advantage of all-round views. Two good size opening forward coachroof windows provide exceptional natural ventilation. The linear galley has large working surfaces with abundant storage, a stainless steel fridge, freezer, double sink and a fully gimballed cooker as standard. The large forward cabin is fitted with v berths, which convert to a double, with good storage, natural light and ensuite facilities.

The highly developed variable draft keel gives the freedom and versatility to sail in almost any waters. With the keel lowered, the deep draft of 8’9’’ (2.67m) makes for fast, serious passage making, with powerful windward performance. At the touch of a button, the keel can be raised, to give a shallow draft of just 2’7’’ (0.77m), perfect for exploring coastlines, shallow bays and inland waterways.

The Southerly 420 conforms to EC category A.

Hull Construction

Heavy Duty GRP Moulding, hand laid up to Northshore's Nordseal laminating system incorporating multi axial and unidirectional reinforcements. The keel box is an integral part of the hull layup and sandwich construction stiffening runs the entire length of the hull topsides. All main bulkheads are bonded into the hull at the main lay-up stage along with a stiffening grillage of transverse frames and longitudinal stringers. The engine bearers are also part of the hull structure. Solid GRP hull below the waterline.

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 an 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.
