Design number: Year: 2003
Designed by the Humphreys and Northshore partnership, the Southerly 35RS is a 35’6” blue water cruising yacht with variable draught thanks to the signature swing keel characteristic of all models in the series.
This traditional-style passage-maker is popular with families and yachtsmen and is a joy to handle. She features a spacious cockpit on deck and a raised saloon below deck – both areas offering comfortable and convivial seating for her sailing companions. The 35RS has an impressive sail plan: her fractional rig, self-tacking furling jib and powerful 33m2 mainsail with single line reefing combine to provide efficient performance in all conditions. In light breezes, an optional gennaker can be flown from a short, removable bowsprit.
The Southerly 35RS can be sailed easily by just two people. Safety and comfort are given priority in the design and her simplified handling minimises the effort needed from the helmsman. The cockpit has been designed for maximum efficiency and security; its forward part is deep and well protected, with comfortable seats and back rest. The aft part of the cockpit is generously open, allowing the helmsman to make full use of the large 48” diameter wheel for precise control of the light and responsive steering system. Teak has been used throughout to ensure durability and good looks. The interior of the 35RS can be customised, but as standard comes with two cabins, a spacious galley and dining area and lots of ingenious storage solutions.
