Re: Interesting Sailboats
I really like those Southerlies. If I could afford one. I think it would be something very similar. Well built, capable of blue water and getting up rivers (or away from others at mooring) and very well thought out.
I've been making a list of other boats with swing keels. I simply love the concept.
The Southerlies only have a defect. The are expensive
Paul and Sheryl Shard (that couple that makes for many years documentaries around the world on cable TV) traded their old boat for a 42 and some years later bought a 49. It seems that they are living well and it seems they like the Southerlies and those two know one or two things about bluewater boats.
