HULL AND DECK FEATURES & EQUIPMENT
Hull: Hand laid up heavy duty GRP molding, incorporating multi-axial and unidirectional reinforcements for strength and impact resistance. The hull is cored above the water line for insulation and weight reduction and is solid glass below. Thickness increases progressively toward the keel area. The keel box is an integral part of the hull layup. There is a substantial skeg fitted on center line to protect the propeller and rudders when the yacht is dried out.
Swing Keel: The signature Southerly electric/hydraulic Swing Keel (this is not a centerboard) can be easily raised and lowered with just the push of a button and stopped anywhere in between. When Swing Keel is raised the draft is only 2' 9" - just imagine where you can go? When lowered, the keel is an impressive 9' 9", considerably deeper than all other similar sized cruising yachts. The additional draft enhances both performance and stability. The push button control as well as a gauge to show the keel position is fitted at the pedestal. The previous owner installing a chaffe guard for the pennant an a baffle for the keel trunk, per the factories specifications.
Deck: The decks are fiberglass. Raised teak capped bulwarks provide extra comfort and safety. Forward is a stainless steel stem head fitting with twin bow rollers and a below deck windlass. There is a very nice large aft deck, ideal for lounging. On either side of the pushpit are large stern rail seats.
Cockpit: Comfortable safe center cockpit. Portside cockpit locker has steps leading down to a work area and quick access to the engine. The transom has sugar scoop steps and a SS bathing ladder.
