2006 Southerly 46RS






46 ft (14.02m)


North Fambridge

A beautiful yacht designed by Jason Kerr, 'Night Song' is one of only four prototypes built for the more famous Southerly 49 (Distant Shores Two) and destined to become a classic. She has an extensive international & British cruising record with two owners from new. She has been well maintained and her current owner has cruised the East Coast where her minimal draft with her keel up is very useful. When dropped the keel is deep and affords an outstanding upwind performance for a comfortable well equipped cruising boat. The large raised deck saloon seating area provides a social point for owners and guests, permitting comfortable dining whilst at anchor or moored, and taking full advantage of the all-round views.

Viewing by appointment only through our Essex office - 01621 785600.
