The design of the interior accommodation, featuring split sole levels beneath the short wheelhouse/coachroof enables a generous and practical galley with good deck-level visibility forward and to the side in common with the internal steering position that is fitted to the starboard side. Side benefits of this raised sole level toward the aft end of the main cabin are the enhanced stowage opportunities beneath the galley area and an easy companionway access with relatively small threshold to sole differential. The main cabin's seating arrangements combining with the modified design of the table provide a comfortable and versatile area in which to relax, The table's original flap extension has been re-designed to be removable enabling the table to be raised to deck level, leaving an open U-shaped seating area in which to entertain visitors, or the table, when lowered may be fitted with the extension to enable such guests to sit comfortably, without cramping, around a very large table. Finally, there is a cushion to enable the table to provide an occasional double berth should your visitors be the 'worse for wear' at the end of the evening and elect to avoid driving (either their car or their tender)! Whilst it is realistically not desirable to accommodate eight people on a 35' yacht, the layout of the individual berths offers flexibility and practicality when it comes to sailing at night, with a choice of berths according to whichever tack the vessel is on.
Note in some of the following pictures just how little water this yacht can remain afloat in (you'll notice the mud between the main pontoon and her starboard side); superb for creek crawling and exploring - just the ticket to be able to escape the madding crowds! This Southerly is particularly well suited to be able to reach the top of rivers and estuaries and to remain comfortably there when the tide ebbs and takes themajority of visitors away with it. Imagine the peace and tranquility!
With only three ownerships since new and in current ownership since October 1990, this boat is set up for convenient shorthanded sailing and in recent years has primarily been a 'second home' by the water for the vendors who now, regrettably are having to accept that the time has come to 'hang up their sailing boots'. The Southerly 105 has the same accommodation arrangements as that of the Southerly 115 successor, but with a transom mounted retractable rudder and slightly shorter hull length. However this 105 was modified and has an extended skeg in common with the later boats and an enlarged rudder. Many of the modifications to the sail plan - for example, the in-boom reefing system - date from soon after our vendor's purchase of the yacht so the systems are well tuned to be beneficial and functional. A retired electrical engineer, the vendor has been capable and attentive to many of the electrical and equipment installations throughout his joint ownership with his wife and the evident care with which the instrumentation has been specified reflects such experience. The underwater sections were professionally stripped, dried and epoxy coated by Kiss Marine during the winter of '95/'96 and the engine was the subject of a major 'top-end' overhaul involving the fitting of new piston rings, liners etc, approx. twenty years ago. The originally specified, two-bladed propeller was replaced with a three bladed one. The hauling mechanism for the keel has recently (2015) been checked as being in fully serviceable condition and the rope work running on the hydraulic ram was replaced in 2014 and has not been used in service since.
The asking price of this vessel has now been SUBSTANTIALLY REDUCED and we are confident that she represents good value.
