‘Dofesaba’ is an good example of the Southerly 42 RST blue water cruising yacht. She has been well maintained and upgraded by the present owner. She is now available with a very complete cruising specification and is in fair order throughout.
The Southerly 42 RST was built to a very high standard and has earned a great reputation for its luxury fit-out and its impressive build quality. She can sleep up to nine people in comfort. The rear owner's cabin is enormous with a central bed, en-suite large heads and plenty of storage.
The raised saloon is extremely light and airy with large windows which give panoramic views. The interior joinery is American maple which gives a high-quality modern feel.
Southerly’s unique lift keel design gives a draft of just .84m when up, which allows the yacht to explore the shallowest of harbours, estuaries, rivers and canals. In fact, Dofesaba has been through the Canal du Midi to the Mediterranean. She is also designed to safely dry out.
At the touch of a button, the keel can be lowered giving a very deep draft of 2.72m which makes for fast and serious blue water cruising.
She is easily sailed short-handed having in-mast reefing, furling genoa, auto helm and of course a bow thruster.
She has a sociable cockpit layout with a large folding table and is perfect for entertaining. Her full cockpit tent provides a great living space when the weather does not co-operate.
The Southerly 42 RST is one of the most comfortable, safe and easily sailed blue water cruising yachts available.
Dofesaba is absolutely ready to go either across to the Caribbean, down to the Med or to explore the British coastline.
She can be viewed 7 days a week.
