North Devon


Northshore Yachts



Price reduced



36' 10"

Sail area

583 sq ft main and genoa

Brief details

Northshore's Southerly's have found their own unique niche market as a comfortable cruising yacht with very shallow draught, yet surprisingly good performance. All feature deck saloons with an interior steering position, and a drop keel which when raised allows the boat to float in very shallow water, or dry out upright. This 1986 Mk I version is well equipped, and has an in-mast furling rig for easy handling, plus an interior steering position for bad weather. The Bukh diesel was fully rebuilt in 2013.

The late Dick Carter ran a US-based yacht design and production company called Carter Offshore, the staff of which included Doug Peterson, Chuck Paine, and Yves-Marie de Tanton, all of whom later went on to set up their own highly regarded design businesses. Carter Offshore mostly designed racing boats, some of them very successful indeed, including the drop keel "Red Rooster" which won the Fastnet Race in 1969.

The first Southerly was the 28, designed by John Bennett and introduced in 1975. In 1978 Northshore commissioned Dick Carter to refine the concept, and the Southerly 100 was the result. In 1983 this was 'stretched' to create the Southerly 115 design, and the 115 remained in production to around 2007.

The yacht for sale here is a Mk I version - having a single rudder and a triangular drop keel, with an internal wheel as well as the wheel in the cockpit. The Mk II boats had a deeper drop keel redesigned by Rob Humphries and the single shallow rudder of the Mk I replaced with a twin rudder configuration. The internal wheel was replaced with an Autohelm joystick control. The Mk III has further minor alterations, primarily to the stern and stern cabin area.

The yacht is fitted with davits for a dinghy, and the rudder has a bottom endplate fitted to improve steering - this was a standard fitting on later Mk I Southerly 115s.
