New for 2018, the eye-catching Southerly 480 has been given a Discovery makeover to all the Southerly hallmarks of a raised interior helm position, raised saloon, great performance and all the features for safe and luxurious blue-water cruising. There is no place you can’t go with the Southerly 480, with its swing keel system, which varies the draft between 1.00m and 3.12m, this provides endless possibilities for the powder white beaches of the Bahamas to the beautiful estuaries of the UK.



Sailing is effortless and comfortable with standard twin headsails, self tacking jib, electric in-mast reefing and Semi-balanced twin rudders. She has a generous aft cockpit and the option of a lowering bathing platform. Contact us for further information about the new Southerly 480 today
