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.
