Deep Draft PERFORMANCE … Shallow Draft FREEDOM!
There are very few yachts that open the oceans and anchorages of the world like a Southerly.
Built by NorthShore Yachts in England, Southerly Yachts have been sailing the oceans of the world for over 30 years. True blue water cruisers designed and built to deliver exhilarating offshore performance, unmatched directional stability and safety, while allowing you to anchor in places that even a catamaran is denied.
You can anchor or dock this Southerly 42 in only 2 feet 9 inches of water and if the tide goes all the way out, she will sit comfortably on her bottom until the tide returns. With a push of a button this variable draft yacht can lower her keel to an impressive 8 feet 11 inches and allow you to sail to weather at angles reserved only for racing yachts.
Prior to crossing the Atlantic, “Dawn Chorus” underwent a £35,000 refit at Northshore Shipyard in 2015. (Full details available.) Following that, her owners sailed her across the Atlantic to the Caribbean, then on to Bermuda and from there to the Chesapeake Bay. As stated by her owner “When I look back over our adventure aboard Dawn Chorus, I feel there are very few boats that could have ticked all the boxes in the way the Southerly 42 did.” Read the complete comments from the owner in the full listing.
Some of her features and recent upgrades are as follows:
- Hull waxed, bottom painted and interior detailed (New Oct. 2016)
- 3 cabin layout
- Teak decks
- Self-tacker and an electric winch for easy sailing
- Gennaker (New 2011) and Code Zero (New 2015)

"When I look back over our adventure aboard Dawn Chorus, I feel there are very few boats that could have ticked all the boxes in the way the Southerly 42 did. We sailed double handed for most of the time so the self-tacking jib and electric winch for the large mainsail made her easy to handle, and having the option to fully deploy the 9ft keel meant she was rock steady during ocean passages. But the boat really came into her own when we were in the shallow waters of the Caribbean, the Intracoastal Waterway and the Chesapeake, where the lifting keel allowed us to reduce our draft to 3ft and glide right up to beautiful sandy beaches and swim ashore, or creep into still creeks where the only sounds were birdsong and jumping fish. Even in New York, the freedom to nudge our way into areas designed for shallow draft boats meant we could anchor in Great Kills harbor on Statton Island or berth right up the Hudson River on the Upper West Side and walk to Central Park. The generous cockpit size, multiple berths and twin heads meant we could comfortably accommodate extra crew, family and friends whenever we liked, but it was wonderful to know that we could manage so easily by ourselves."
Easy companionway steps lead you to a large open salon area. The deck salon windows provide panoramic views and give you an instant feeling of space. Partially reflective tinted glass gives privacy while also deflecting the sun's rays. Concertina blinds cover the deck salon windows for additional shade and privacy. With 3 cabins, you can sleep 8 people very comfortably. Cherry interior joinery. Teak and holly floors.
The large raised salon is very spacious and has generous seating for 6-8 people. The salon table folds to provide a smaller coffee table or expands for a large dining table. The large salon windows provide great visibility and allow you to see what is going on around you. This area is very comfortable either underway or when entertaining.
With just the push of a button, the table lowers and converts the seating area to a large double berth. Lots of storage is found under the seating and outboard in lockers.
The chart table is to starboard and is in a raised position to take advantage of the panoramic views. For additional details see "Navigation and Electronics" below.
The galley is amidships to starboard in a lower position for greatest comfort at sea. For further details see "Galley" below.
There are 2 heads. One is located just forward of the galley and the other is ensuite to the master stateroom. A comfortable seat covers the head allowing you to sit when showering. Both heads have an extractor fan. With minimal wood in the head, it is easy to keep clean and maintain. Good storage is found under the sink and in outboard cupboards and lockers. Some additional features in the heads include: Jabsco head, large sink, shower, electric shower pump, hot and cold pressurized water with a mixer tap and a waste tank gauge.
The owner's spacious stateroom is aft with a large centerline berth and seating on either side. The berth is split for lee cloths. A very unique feature is the large area over the berth which opens to the cockpit and provides a nice open and airy feeling. Good light and ventilation is provided to this area which has 2 opening ports as well as 2 hull ports. Excellent lighting is provided by the reading lights and many overhead lights. Concertina blinds which are very easy to open/close or adjust to any point, cover the windows. There are ensuite facilities to a large private head. Good storage for your clothes is provided by a large hanging locker, outboard lockers and shelves.
The forward cabin has a long v-berth with a filler. There is an additional third berth over the starboard side which can also be used for additional easy access storage. Plenty of light and ventilation is provided by a large hatch overhead and hull ports. To port is a very large locker with shelves as well as a long outboard shelf. In addition, there is a tremendous amount of storage under the berth.
The third cabin is on the port side opposite the forward head. There are 2 good long berths; upper and lower. Good storage is found in the large hanging locker and under the lower berth. In addition there is a custom cabinet with 2 shelves for very convenient storage.

HULL, DECK & EQUIPMENT
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 centerline to protect the propeller and rudders when the yacht is dried out
The 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 lowered, the keel is an impressive 8 feet 11 inches, 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.
Teak decks. Raised teak capped bulwarks provide extra comfort and safety. Forward is a stainless steel stem head fitting for the bow roller and an electric windlass. Deck Salon windows are partially reflective tinted glass which provides privacy while also deflecting the heat from the sun.
Large cockpit with comfortable seating is great for entertaining or while underway. The cockpit table has folding leaves, an inside storage area and a very convenient handrail. Beneath the table are contoured footrests for comfort and security while heeling.
The aft part of the cockpit is designed to give the helmsman the very best position to steer from. Foot wells for bracing, and comfortable seating both behind and outboard of each helm station offer safety at sea, while giving a clear view to the bow, while on either tack.
With twin wheels, the cockpit is very easy to move around and also to access the transom with sugar scoop steps. Floors and seats are teak for safety. There is a very large and deep lazarette locker to starboard and another locker to port.
