Broker's Comments

This 'built to last' Southerly, with heavy grounding plate and lifting keel, would be equally at home sailing across the channel to warmer climes as it would navigating the shallowest local coastal creeks or sitting on a drying berth. Longer and beamier than its smaller sisters, this sturdy, spacious and very versatile family cruiser ticks a lot of boxes.

Although the lifting keel takes a little bit of space down below, the accommodation seems to have been cleverly designed around it and has a light, spacious & homely feel. In addition to the well-equipped galley, this vessel has a large aft cabin, practical fwd cabin, plenty of berths, good head room, ample stowage and a good sized heads compartment. She would also serve well as a live aboard/holiday home.

The versatile saloon table on this example can be adjusted to sit more hungry crew around it or slid up out of the way, to make more space.

It is easy to move around on deck, the high centre cockpit will help keep you dry and give a sense of security in a following sea. Down below is roomy, well-laid-out and homely.

Her cockpit is safe and deep and her decks are wide which allows for ease of moving around. Not often found on more modern boats is her foredeck pit which adds greater safety to deployment and recovery of the anchor.

Easy to handle and capable of long passages or pottering round the estuaries, it's easy to see why folk hang on to these great boats. The present owner, who has looked after her for the past 30 years, would love to see someone else do the same and enjoy her as much as he has.
