After 36 years and over 1,100 Southerly's sailing the world, the Southerly swing keel is the leader in design and engineering. The weight of the grounding plate and of the keel improves the righting moment, the safety, the stability and the performance of the yacht.
Superyacht designer Ed Dubois was commissioned to work alongside Northshore’s in-house design team to create the Southerly 57RS – the Flagship of the Southerly line.
This sleek, stunning and powerful blue water yacht is designed and built to take you anywhere. All primary functions are powered and with a working sail plan of main and self taking jib, sail handling could not be made easier. For light or downwind sailing you can quickly power up with the overlapping genoa.
The Southerly 57's Swing Keel system gives this yacht a capability not enjoyed by other yachts. There are many advantages to this swing keel and the fact that the keel completely retracts inside the hull. When all the way down the foil shaped keel delivers a 10' 9" draft and the upwind pointing ability of many racing yachts.
At the touch of a button the keel can be raised at any time to any depth from 10' 9" to just 3' 6". When all the way up this yacht is designed and built so she can even sit on the bottom when the tide goes out! If you have shallow water at your dock – you don’t even need 4 feet to keep this lovely yacht there.
"Tal'Lira's" owners thoughtfully planned and equipped this luxurious yacht. She has crossed the Atlantic once and is ready and capable to take you wherever you want to go!

In 2011 SAIL Magazine awarded the Southerly 57 as the Best Boat Winner for flagship monohulls. Following is an excerpt from their announcement.
"One day you might be power-reaching across an ocean, logging double-digit speeds under a massive A-sail set on a retracting bowsprit. On another day you may be tacking effortlessly up a narrow channel, putting the helm over and watching the self-tacking jib slam across its track, enjoying the windward bite and responsive steering of a deep-drafted performance cruiser. Or you may have nosed up to a beach, the boat sitting upright on the hard sand as the tide recedes, your children playing in the shadow of the sleek hull.
If you own a Southerly 57RS all this and more is possible, which is why we had no hesitation in singling this boat out from a strong group of contenders. Designed by Ed Dubois and built in Britain by Northshore Yachts, the 57RS is the flagship of a line of strong, seaworthy and well-crafted variable-draft sailboats. It is a bluewater-capable cruiser with a difference."
The interior style is traditional in its practicality. The contemporary styling creates a fresh and modern feel throughout the yacht.
Rhoades Young was commissioned to work alongside the in-house design team to create a seamless interior - very careful space planning, extended diagonal sight lines and views beyond the cabin boundaries create an illusion of space which leaves the interior feeling light and airy. The overriding impression is of light and space, with connection between inside and out through extensive windows both the sides and forward, affording commanding views when relaxing in the raised salon. Numerous opening hatches provide cross ventilation.
"Tal' Lira" has lovely Birch joinery accented with teak creating a light and elegant feel to the interior. The blue ultraleather upholstery provides a striking accent. The 3 cabin layout boasts a supremely spacious aft master stateroom. A large forward guest stateroom and mid-ships cabin provides excellent accommodations for guest and crew.

SAILS & RIGGING
The Southerly 57 is primarily designed for easy handling, and can be sailed by just 2 people. The tall powerful rig with swept back spreaders will keep the yacht sailing fast, with minimum effort. The double head sail is suitable for most wind conditions; the self-tacking jib allows you to sail easily on short tacks without any effort - ideal for coastal cruising. The overlapping genoa enhances upwind performance in light airs and together, the double headsail is perfect for downwind trade wind sailing.

KEEL, DECK & EQUIPMENT
The hull is characterised by a long waterline, fine entry and beam carried aft to ensure the highest degree of performance, comfort, stability and safety. The beautifully sleek stylish lines of the raised pilot house coachroof exudes sophistication and elegance, normally only seen on much larger yachts. The large fold down transom door gives access to a large stowage area, ideal for a dinghy or diving equipment. When the door is lowered it makes a great bathing platform and provides good access for boarding.
The Swing Keel is an essential feature on a yacht of this size. While the deep draft of 10' 9" provides excellent windward performance, stability and good sail carrying capabilities, the extra depth is restrictive in marinas and around shorelines, etc. At the 'touch of a button' the keel can be raised to give a shallow draft of only 3' 6" - perfect for coastlines, low tides and those shallow waters that most all other sailboats cannot get into.
The aft cockpit is extremely spacious, yet secure with comfortable seating and a large cockpit table for entertaining guests in style. For convenience there is a refrigerated box in the table. A glass windscreen provides great visibility and extra protection from the elements. Covering the cockpit is a grand bimini creating a real outdoor room.
The twin wheeled helming position allows the helmsman to enjoy the powerful performance of the yacht, with dedicated areas for sail controls and sailing short handed. Further seating aft allows for guests to relax in comfort, while enjoying all round views.
