Broker's Comments

The Southerly 28 is a well built and spacious yacht from a well respected builder. Whilst not everybody's idea of an ocean cruiser, Southerlies do in fact roam far and wide, with the enviable and unique ability to take the ground and explore the shallows and backwaters where other similar sized yachts can never go. She is in superb condition with many recent and unique modifications and improvements, too numerous to list here. Early viewing is highly recommended if you are searching for one of these sought after yachts. See "more photos" to view 41 internal and external photos of this vessel.
