When you step inside, you enter a bright and open interior. The large deck salon windows in the raised coachroof provide panoramic views, giving an instant feeling of space. Partially reflective tinted glass gives privacy. Opening hatches provide cross ventilation. There is good headroom throughout. On both the port and the starboard sides are settees. In the middle is a large salon table with 2 leaves that fold down. When the leaves are open, this will service both settees, allowing for quite a few people at your table. Lots of storage is found under the seating and outboard in lockers. Concertina blinds on the deck salon windows add privacy and provide shade when desired.
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 L-shaped galley is to port at the base of the companionway. You have great views out the deck salon windows. For further details see "Galley" below.
There are 2 heads. One is located forward of the salon and the other is ensuite to the master stateroom. A comfortable seat covers the head allowing you to sit when showering. 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 (aft head only).
The owner's spacious stateroom is aft with a large centerline berth and seating on either side. A very unique feature is the large area over the berth which recesses to the cockpit, thus raising the ceiling which provides a nice open and airy feeling. Good light and ventilation is provided to this area which has 3 opening ports as well as 2 hull ports. Excellent lighting is provided by the reading lights and many overhead lights. Curtains cover the windows. There are ensuite facilities to a large 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 also an additional 3rd upper bunk on the starboard side. When not needed for an extra berth, this can be used for storage. Plenty of light and ventilation is provided by a large hatch overhead and hull ports. Curtains cover the ports for privacy. In addition there is a tremendous amount of storage under the berth.To stbd is a large hanging locker.
The galley is located on the port side as you first enter the boat. There is a grab bar for additional safety. Lots of storage is found outboard in both enclosed lockers and open shelves.
Nav area and seating is raised allowing excellent visibility through the deck salon windows. In foul weather you can even steer inside using the autopilot. The chart table opens for storage below. The main switch panel is conveniently located at the base of the nav table and is illuminated making it very easy to see at any time of day. Below the nav seat is all storage. Outboard storage compartment and convenient open storage.
This Southerly 38 boasts an impressive sail plan, for powerful windward performance. The Selden tall fractional rig with swept back double spreaders, combines a self tacking furling jib (for very easy sailing) and a large mainsail. Fully battened main with Stac Pac system, Selden MDS cars and lazy jacks allows the main sail to drop very quickly and easily! Single line reefing system with 3 reef points. All lines run back to the cockpit.
Yanmar 40hp 3 cylinder, fresh water cooled, diesel engine. Good easy access to the engine from both ends.
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 the keel improves the righting moment, the safety, the stability and the performance of the yacht.
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. The push button control as well as a gauge to show the keel position is fitted at the pedestal. When lowered, the keel is an impressive 8' 6", considerably deeper than all other similar sized cruising yachts. The additional draft enhances both performance and stability. When raised, you now have an extremely shoal draft boat with a draft of only 2’ 8”. Just imagine where you can go!
Teak decks and raised teak capped bulwarks provide extra comfort and safety. Forward is a stainless steel stem head fitting with twin bow rollers and a 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 safe and 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 steps to a sugar scoop. Floors and seats are teak for safety. There is a very large and deep lazarette locker to starboard and another locker to port.
