Deep Draft PERFORMANCE … Shallow Draft FREEDOM!
There are very few yachts that open the oceans and anchorages of the world like a Southerly.
Built by NorthShore Yachts in England, there are over 1,100 Southerly Yachts sailing the oceans of the world for over 36 years. True blue water cruisers designed and built to deliver exhilarating offshore performance, unmatched directional stability and safety, while allowing you to anchor in places that even a catamaran is denied.
You can anchor or dock this Southerly 42 in only 2 feet 9 inches of water and if the tide goes all the way out, she will sit comfortably on her bottom until the tide returns. With a push of a button this variable draft yacht can lower her keel to an impressive 8 feet 11 inches and allow you to sail to weather at angles reserved only for racing yachts.
Designed by Rob Humphrey's, the Southerly 42RST is a very popular model.
SIMPLE ABUNDANCE is hull # 32. She has been well maintained and loved by her original owners. She is equipped for cruising and ready to fulfill her new owners dreams.
Some of her features and upgrades are as follows:
"Simple Abundance" is on the hard in Annapolis and available to see. Contact us for additional information and pictures.

The current owners have loved their boat but have now completed their sailing adventures. To prepare Simple Abundance for her new owners they offloaded her and had the following work done in July 2016.
Simple Abundance looks very good!
As in most Southerly models, this 42RST has large deck salon windows providing the raised salon and raised nav seating with panoramic views. These large windows as well as the numerous overhead hatches give you a wonderful feeling of light and of space. Partially reflective tinted glass gives privacy while also deflecting the sun's rays. 2 cabin layout and convertible salon provides sleeping accommodations for 6. Cherry interior joinery.
Easy companionway steps lead you to a bright open salon area. The large salon windows provide great visibility and allow you to see what is going on around you. The salon seating is raised allowing you to see outside while seated. This area is very comfortable either underway or when entertaining. The salon table folds to provide a smaller coffee table or expands for a large dining table. The table lowers and converts to a large double berth. Lots of storage is found under the seating and outboard in lockers. Lee cloths are on the port side. Concertina type blinds on the deck salon windows add privacy and provide shade when desired.
The chart table is to starboard and is in a raised position to take advantage of the panoramic views. For additional details see "Navigation and Electronics" below.
The galley is amidships to starboard in a lower position for greatest comfort at sea. For further details see "Galley" below.
There are 2 heads. One is located just forward of the galley and the other is ensuite to the master stateroom. A comfortable seat covers the head allowing you to sit when showering. The aft head has an extractor fan. With minimal wood in the head, it is easy to keep clean and maintain. Good storage is found under the sink and in outboard cupboards and lockers. Some additional features in the heads include: Jabsco head, large sink, shower, electric shower pump, hot and cold pressurized water with a mixer tap and a waste tank gauge.
The owner's spacious stateroom is aft with a large centerline berth and seating on either side. The berth is split to accommodate lee cloths. A very unique feature is the large area over the berth which opens to the cockpit and provides a nice open and airy feeling. Good light and ventilation is provided to this area which has 3 opening ports as well as 2 hull ports. Excellent lighting is provided by the reading lights and many overhead lights. Concertina blinds which are very easy to open/close or adjust to any point, cover the windows. There are ensuite facilities to a large private head. Good storage for your clothes is provided by a large hanging locker, outboard lockers and shelves and good deep storage under the berth.
The forward cabin has a long v-berth with a filler. Plenty of light and ventilation is provided by a large hatch overhead and hull ports. Curtains cover the ports for privacy. Aft of the berth to port is a locker with a washing machine. Convenient outboard shelves provide easy access storage. On the stbd side aft of the berth is a large hanging locker. In addition there is a tremendous amount of storage under the berth.
The linear galley is located on the starboard side amidships at a lower level. This location lessens the motion and provides more stability for the cook when at sea. There is a grab bar for additional safety. Lots of storage is found outboard in both enclosed lockers and open shelves. More storage is found under the sink. Opposite the galley is a locker for bottles.
Nav area and seating is raised allowing excellent visibility through the deck salon windows. In foul weather you could even steer inside using the autopilot. The chart table opens for storage below. The main switch panel is conveniently located at the base of the nav table and is illuminated making it very easy to see at any time of day. Aft of the nav seating is a large hanging locker, convenient for your foul weather gear. Below the nav seat is all storage. Outboard is an enclosed storage compartment as well as a convenient open storage area.
The Southerly 42 boasts an impressive sail plan, for powerful windward performance. The Selden tall fractional rig with swept back double spreaders, combines a self tacking furling jib (for very easy sailing) and a large mainsail. Fully battened main with Stac Pac system, Selden MDS cars and lazy jacks allows the main sail to drop very quickly and easily! Single line reefing system with 3 reef points. All lines run back to the cockpit.
Yanmar 56hp 4 cylinder, fresh water cooled, diesel engine. Extremely low hours. Good easy access to the engine.
After 38 years and over 1,100 Southerly’s sailing the world, the Southerly swing keel is the leader in design and engineering. The weight of the grounding plate and the keel improves the righting moment, the safety, the stability and the performance of the yacht.
Hand laid up heavy duty GRP molding, incorporating multi-axial and unidirectional reinforcements for strength and impact resistance. The hull is cored above the water line for insulation and weight reduction and is solid glass below. Thickness increases progressively toward the keel area. The keel box is an integral part of the hull layup. There is a substantial skeg fitted on centerline to protect the propeller and rudders when the yacht is dried out.
The Swing Keel (this is not a centerboard) can be easily raised and lowered with just the push of a button and stopped anywhere in between. The push button control as well as a gauge to show the keel position is fitted at the pedestal. When lowered, the keel is an impressive 8' 11", considerably deeper than all other similar sized cruising yachts. The additional draft enhances both performance and stability. When raised, you now have an extremely shoal draft boat with a draft of only 2’ 9”. Just imagine where you can go!
Decks are two toned with a beige nonslip. Raised teak capped bulwarks provide extra comfort and safety. Forward is a stainless steel stem head fitting with twin bow rollers and a windlass. Deck Salon windows are partially reflective tinted glass which provides privacy while also deflecting the heat from the sun.
Large cockpit with comfortable seating is great for entertaining or while underway. The cockpit table has folding leaves, an inside storage area and a very safe and convenient handrail. Beneath the table are contoured footrests for comfort and security while heeling. The aft part of the cockpit is designed to give the helmsman the very best position to steer from. Foot wells for bracing, and comfortable seating both behind and outboard of each helm station offer safety at sea, while giving a clear view to the bow, while on either tack. With twin wheels, the cockpit is very easy to move around and also to access the transom with sugar scoop steps. Floors and seats are teak for safety. There is a very large and deep lazarette locker to starboard and another locker to port.
