Here we have the Southerly 115 MKIV - a very well respected yacht from a great stable, she is fabulously presented and here with us at Northney Marina, Hayling Island.
This Southerly 115 MK IV 'Swan Song' has benefited greatly from the classes continual development since the first Southerly 115 was built.
She has good cruising performance and has proven herself to be an excellent and safe family cruising yacht, whether it be for short passage or long passage making.
The interior is light and spacious and the aft cabin is simply wonderful. The interior design works well either at anchor or at sea.
Some of the many upgrades incorporated into Swan Song over the early Southerly 115's include better interior headroom and standard of finish, a deeper and heavier keel giving improved sailing performance and twin rudders for even better steering under sail and power.
The swing keel is very well proven and gives tremendous flexibility to ones cruising. She can sail in under 3 feet of water and can even dry out on a suitable surface. The keel can be used anywhere between up and down.
She has up to 7 berths. There is are 2 singles or a double forward, a double aft and a double conversion in the saloon plus another single as well.
Swan Song will be ideal for your weekending or for longer living aboard whilst extensive cruising.

Since the original Southerly 115 series I was introduced into the Southerly range in 1983, she has outrivalled many yachts of her size. Following on from the series II, and series III, the new Southerly 115 benefits from over twenty years of continuous development. Combined with the existing Rob Humphrey's Swing Keel' the new twin rudder configuration and increased mainsail area provide outstanding sailing performance and improved handling.
