Discovery Southerly 57 Overview

Reliable strong cruiser Southerly 57 is suitable for swimming together or with friends. The owner of this yacht always has a choice: to sail it himself or to hire a captain. Both are available.

Exterior and Interior Design

This yacht was designed by the famous architect Ed Dubois. He also designed another model in the range, the Southerly 54. The Southerly 57 is an elegant and voluminous sailing yacht with no loss of dynamics. The boat combines innovative design, powerful sailing performance, superb build quality and offers a luxurious level of living on board.

Comforts on board

The layout of the residential deck includes three or four cabins. The saloon has a cozy dining room and a company cabin, which can accommodate up to 10 people at a time. The galley is equipped almost like on superyachts and, apart from other appliances, even includes a garbage compactor. However, the different floor levels in the living area may not seem very comfortable to someone, and when trying to organize a large dinner in the cockpit even cause irritation. However, the elevated salon also has the undeniable advantage of being able to watch what is happening outside without having to break away from the meal.


The Southerly 57 is equally effective in all weather conditions and is designed to manage a minimum crew - even two people can handle the boat without problems. The armament with two front sails is optimal for most wind conditions. The automatic jib allows for short sails without extra effort on the part of the crew and is ideal for coastal cruising. The large genus allows high speeds in low winds. The Gennaker, which is mounted on a retractable hydraulic carbon bowsprit, can be used for winds. The grotto is curled into a gyke - this is standard, curled into a mast or grotto on armour - options.

Region of sailing

The yacht is suitable for the most serious ocean voyages. The unique swivel keel significantly enhances the cruising capabilities of the yacht. Since its introduction in 1978, Swing Keel technology has been used on more than a thousand boats still cruising the oceans, proving its reliability and versatility.
