By Dubois. This ultimate blue water cruiser offers the very best in cruising yacht design. Innovative design, contemporary styling, powerful sailing performance, superior build quality and luxurious accommodation are all hallmarks of the Southerly 57RS.
The variable draft keel is an essential feature on a yacht of this size. The deep draft of 10'9'' provides excellent windward performance (pointing to 30 degrees) whilst at the touch of a button, the keel can be raised to just 3'6'', perfect for coastlines or sailing in shallow water.
The Southerly 57RS is primarily designed for easy handling and can be sailed by just two people. The tall powerful rig with swept back spreaders will keep the yacht sailing fast with minimum effort. The double headsail rig is suitable for most wind conditions; the self tacking jib allows you to sail easily on short tacks without any effort, whilst the overlapping genoa enhances upwind performance in light airs. An asymmetric gennaker can be flown from a hydraulic retractable carbon bowsprit.
