The New Southerly 435 centre cockpit, blue water cruising yacht, designed by Northshore and Rob Humphreys can be easily sailed by two people and boasts an impressive sail plan. The tall fractional rig with swept back double spreaders, combines a self tacking furling jib and large mainsail with single line reefing, giving a total sail area of 793 sq ft (73.62m2). For off wind sailing, an optional gennaker can be flown from a removable stainless steel bowsprit.


A modern well-balanced hull form with a long heeled waterline and broad transom provides the Southerly 435 with thoroughbred performance and sea-kindly motion. The steering is direct with minimum backlash with twin semi-balanced rudders to give instantly responsive steering and precise directional control. The propeller is protected by a substantial skeg that assists in stabilising the yacht when taking the ground. The optional bow thruster and stern thruster give the 435 exceptional low speed manouverability and control.
