The Southerly 100 is a Dick Carter design, one of the few really shallow draught modern yachts available. She has a pilot house with interior steering, and a cast iron ballast plate protecting the keel and bottom when grounding. We sold this yacht to the present owner 10 years ago, and since then he has very comprehensively upgraded and equipped her. She is for sale now only for the owner's health reasons. Ashore in Hampshire.

The Southerly 100 was introduced in 1983, being a slightly updated version of the 1979 Dick Carter Southerly 95, itself a development of the original John Bennett designed Southerly 28 from 1974.

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.

Southerlys are renowned for their ability to float “on a damp lawn” and with the keel raised by the electrically powered hydraulic ram she only draws 1’ 10”, but with the keel down she draws a healthy 5’10” and can give a good account of herself to windward. The inevitably shallow rudder can however sometimes cause poor control offwind in a large quartering sea - a price many owners are happy to pay for the advantages of very shallow draught.

The wedge-shaped drop keel sits in a massive steel grounding plate, which not only protects it but also acts as a substantial contribution to the ballast. Southerlys were until recently still in production, though the smallest model was the Southerly 32 at around £200,000+.
