Southerly 42 RST



42.4 feet





Jaykay Marine Sales are proud to offer for sale this beautiful example of a Southerly 42RST, commissioned in 2008. This yacht was relaunched for the season in April 2019 and is now on her berth here in Northney Marina. Please call us or email us to arrange your viewing.

The engine is a Yanmar 4JH4-E, 56 hp which was most recently serviced in December 2016. At the same time it was winterised, and the batteries were disconnected for storage over-winter. In April 2017 the engine was recommissioned, and the batteries were re-connected. The boat has been little-used in 2017 and 2018 so the vendor has decided now is the right time to sell it.

The cabin design is: 1 double berth, 1 double V-berth with an additional berth at high-level, 2 bunk berths and the saloon provides an additional double berth.

This gorgeous yacht has been very well loved and owned from new by her current owner and comes with a very high specification. The vendor has not hesitated in getting required maintenance and service work completed – the most recent works are highlighted below.

Recent extensive maintenance included:

- Complete overhaul of swing keel, involving removal and refitting with new seals, new Kevlar strap, total overhaul of electro-hydraulic lifting system (completed 2019)

- New Furlex jib furler (2018)

- Complete overhaul of rigging, with new shrouds and stays, partial replacement of safety lines, some new halyards and traveller lines (completed 2019)

- New lazyjack and stac-pak system

- Antifoul and sacrificial anodes (2019)

- Complete overhaul of forward heads and holding tank (2018)

- New bow thruster (2018)

- New sprayhood (2017)


What the owner has to say about this boat:

“This boat has been a joy since new. Comfortable, sturdy, safe and easy to sail, whilst putting on a good pace when sailed hard. It is a lovely family boat, enjoyed by my four daughters who learnt to sail on it while growing up, and it has hosted many a sociable evening in the saloon, the cockpit and when beached - courtesy of that Southerly speciality: its swing keel. With the family now grown up and moving on, it is time for others to enjoy this lovely boat and explore the sea in comfort.”
