The Southerly 135 is a variable draft blue water cruiser with a raised deck saloon. Built by Northshore Yachts and designed by Rob Humphries. Northshore Yachts have been building swing keel yachts for decades with a high reputation for quality and the Southerly 135 is no exception. Whether UK, Northern Europe or Mediterranean.
This particular Southerly 135 had two owners and continued to be fully maintained. She has coppercoat antifoul, Raymarine instruments, bowthruster and much more..
Built by Northshore Yachts in 2003 and designed by Rob Humphries.
Northshore employs conventional FRP laid up by hand, with balsa core in the deck and in the hull above the waterline. In the deck laminate, plywood infills replace the balsa at each compression point, such as where hardware is installed. The solid laminate below the waterline grows thicker as it approaches the centerline, and a unique keel box is molded as an integral part of the hull. Unidirectional fiberglass is added to high-stress areas, and the underwater surface of the hull has a clear gelcoat.
