The Southerly 470 provides the ideal balance of power and ease of handling with a tall fractional rig, self-tacking jib and large mainsail. A double headsail rig (self-tacking jib and overlapping genoa) can be chosen as an option, for optimum sailing performance. For off wind conditions, an aysmmetric gennaker can be flown from an optional bowsprit. As with all Southerly’s, the semi balanced twin rudders give instantly responsive steering and precise directional stability.

The cockpit is secure and enclosed, with deep comfortable seating. A central table offers al fresco dining facilities for guests while also providing a convenient foot brace. Large teak seats on the stern rail provide further areas for socialising. The fold down transom door gives access to a generous stowage area.

The interior space has been designed for maximum comfort and practicality with contemporary styling to create a luxurious feel throughout the yacht, and features a large raised saloon to port offering panoramic views with further seating to starboard. A raised navigation area in close proximity to the cockpit affords a panoramic view and excellent communication with the helmsman. The large open galley is well planned and positioned close to the companionway. Ample work surfaces, stainless steel appliances and plenty of stowage space are provided for enjoyable onboard living.

A three-cabin layout is standard, with a large master aft cabin for supreme luxury. Built by Discovery Shipyard in Southampton, a wide variety of wood and handcrafted finishes are available.

The Southerly 470 features the advanced Swing Keel system which allows the freedom and versatility to sail in almost any waters. With the keel lowered, the variable draft of 3.12m (10’3”) makes for fast and efficient sailing. At the touch of a button, the keel can be raised to a shallow draft of just under a metre (3’3”) perfect for reaching the most secluded anchorages.
