Southerly 47

Twin rudders, as well as the trademark swing keel, are the defining characteristics of the Southerly line, and with the new 47, one could add sparkling sailing performance to the mix. The standard fractional rig includes a big mainsail and self-tacking jib; dual headsails are an option. In light air, fly the big asymmetric kite. The Southerly 47 is part of Cruising World's 2013 New Boat Showcase.
