Comfort on board.
The basic layout of Southerly 54 has three cabins. The master stateroom is aft, with a double vip cabin forward and another pulmann type. The salon is raised and glazed in a circle - even sitting at the dining table, travelers can enjoy the scenery overboard. «The social part» of the cockpit is slightly flooded, providing comfort and protection for its occupants. Spray hood and awning provide additional protection from wind and heat respectively.
The layout of the yacht with two forward sails is suitable for most wind conditions. Automatic staysail and 145% genoa equipped with electric spindles. The mainsail is available as a basic version with a spin in a gyke, an optional mast spin or a mainsail in lats. Electric winches and working ends are within easy reach of the steering wheel. Variable draught so you don't have to worry when sneaking into shallow anchorages. Under the waterline, the Southerly 54 has two steering nibs and a central skeg that protects the propeller and shaft. The 3t raised and lowered raised and lowered hydraulically and is fully retractable in the keel box. The swivel keel was used on the first Southerly 33 in 1978, and there were many supporters of this concept. As many say, if you try a yacht with a variable draft, you will not want another. However, a fixed keel for Southerly 54 is still available as an option.
Southerly 54 is a serious boat prepared for ocean sailing. She is especially relevant where her swivel keel, which reduces draught to 95 cm, will be useful, for example in Britain or Newfoundland. In these areas, such a keel would be a great advantage.
