The fixed ballast is a wide section iron casting which acts as a grounding plate and as transverse stiffening for the keel unit. It is fitted into a recess in the hull in the area of the keel box by means of stainless steel bolts. The aerofoil Swing Keel is cast iron and incorporates a stainless steel pivot at the leading edge.
The Swing Keel is raised and lowered by a hydraulic ram powered by an electrically driven pump with a hand operated back-up. All the hydraulics are easily accessible for any routine maintenance.
With a minimum draft of 2'9" with the keel raised, you really can explore areas other yachts of this size simply cannot!
The tall rig provides easy handling and excellent sail carrying capacity to maximise sailing performance taking full advantage of the deep 'keel lowered' draft of 9'9", giving precise directional stability and powerful windward performance.
She is a true world class cruising yacht capable of fast blue water passage making.
The Southerly 135 can be easily sailed by two people. Halyard and reefing lines are fed back through the coach roof and the self tailing winches are positioned within the cockpit for easy handling.
The large centre cockpit with ample stowage, is designed with both safety and comfort in mind.
