2009 Southerly 32






32.75 ft (9.98m)



The Southerly 32 was an instant success, and offers an almost unique combination of offshore sailing performance, class-leading accommodation, and the ability to not only explore shoal waters but also to take the ground, all whilst squeezing into a 10m LOA. In addition, the electric lifting keel mechanism, bow thruster, anchor windlass and self-tacking jib all operable from the helm making them very easy for short-handed sailing, and these factors combine to make them one of the most sought-after yachts on the UK market. 'Cassiel' has sat unused for the majority of her life and now requires a thorough program of recommissioning and upgrading before she can be used, and is being offered at a very low price to reflect the possible costs and risks this may result in. It is an amazing opportunity to spec with the latest equipment and overhaul all systems whilst still potentially making a significant saving against other sisterships that may still require some of these works. Demand is expected to be very high so viewing at your earliest opportunity is highly advised! Viewing by appointment through our Essex office (01621) 785600.

Accommodation The layout offers up to five berths, with two double sleeping cabins separate from the main accommodation with good headroom. FORECABIN:   Fitted with a generous-sized V-berth with infill, hanging locker, cupboard, shelves, portlights, and an opening hatch to the foredeck. SALOON:   Laid out with settee berths either side of a central table with folding leaves, easily accessed storage areas are behind each berth and excellent natural light is provided by the deck saloon windows and three opening deck hatches for ventilation. GALLEY:   L-shaped galley aft to port forward to starboard equipped with a Plastimo Neptune gimballed 2-burner gas cooker with oven and grill, stainless steel sink with hot and cold pressurised water, top opening fridge, and storage. CHART TABLE:   Forward facing to starboard and fitted with navigation instrumentation, an electrical panel, and stowage. AFT CABIN:   This is a remarkably spacious cabin for a yacht of this size with a double berth, hanging locker, cupboard, two opening portlights, and en suite access to the heads compartment. HEADS:   Separate heads compartment to starboard with a Jabsco marine toilet, holding tank, shower, washbasin, wet hanging locker, and storage. GENERAL EQUIPMENT:   Cherry wood cabinetry with teak and holly effect soleboards (there are some signs of condensation/water damage which a professional French polisher or shipwright would be able to improve). Light blue suedette saloon upholstery (there are some areas of staining but a professional cleaner may be able to remove these). Excellent ventilation throughout is provided by numerous opening hatches and portlights together. Pressurised hot and cold water system via calorifier with immersion coil. Eberspacher diesel-fired warm air heating system. Mechanical Systems Located beneath the companionway in removable sound insulated engine box, Yanmar 3YM30 29hp 3-cylinder diesel engine. Freshwater cooled. Single lever controls with electric start. Shaftdrive with rope cutter to fixed 3-bladed propeller. Bronze stern tube with water-lubricated stern gland. Plastic 136L fuel tank with sediment trap and line filter. Lewmar bow thruster with control on the helm binnacle. The engine appears to be in good cosmetic condition and is believed to have been very lightly used, however, the engine hours are not known as the batteries require replacement. Nothing more is known of its history but it would be prudent to carry out precautionary measures, inspections, and servicing prior to recommissioning, along with all related systems due to the extended period of inactivity. Electrical Systems 3 x Batteries (all require replacement) charged via the engine alternator. Battery isolator switches. Shorepower system with ring mains, automatic battery charger, and immersion coil for water heating. Electrical distribution panel. Full cabin lighting with reading lights over bunks and chart light.

Construction Southerly 32 No.23 built in 2009 by Northshore Ltd. to a Stephen Jones design. Mid-plue painted GRP hull with cream superstructure and decks with moulded non-slip surfaces. Northshore's patented Nordseal anti-osmosis system with clear gelcoat is used beneath the waterline. Lifting keel with electrically operated hydraulic system and locking pin, to lock the keel up and take the load off the lifting tackle. Lewmar wheel steering to twin semi-balanced skeg hung rudders (designed to protect propeller and rudders when drying out). Aft self-draining cockpit. Teak-laid cockpit seats and sole. Teak deck capping. Bathing platform with hot and cold shower. Self-draining anchor stowage locker. Additional Comments In 2014 'Cassiel' suffered some minor gel coat damage and scratches to her topsides due to a snapped mooring line in high winds (a picture is available showing the damage pre-repair). She was brought ashore and professionally repaired and resprayed under insurance during the summer of 2015 when her rig was also removed and sails put into storage. Since this time she has never been relaunched and has sat ashore unattended, still in her original ownership. As a result, some areas like her saloon headlinings and upholstery have suffered, and all systems are now in need of assessment and recommissioning along with some items of equipment. Her sails are believed to be in serviceable condition as they have been stored inside and prior to coming ashore Cassiel was very lightly used, but her canvas pack and much of her running rigging will require replacement. Her standing rigging is believed to be in good condition as this was stored inside together with her mast, however, some bottle screws and fastenings may have been mislaid over the years. All batteries will need replacing, the keel mechanism may require servicing, the engine will require careful recommissioning, seacocks servicing/replacing, and some nav gear may need repair or renewal. All of the works mentioned above have been taken into account within the asking price, which is highly competitive even with the potential costs that could be incurred, as it represents a discount of around £50-60,000 for a similar Southerly 32, but with everything serviced and renewed. Manufacturer Provided Description FAST, FUN & EASY TO SAIL Stephen Jones was commissioned to embody the established features of the Southerly within a hull to fit a 10m mooring whilst providing good live aboard facilities and excellent sailing performance.The result sets very high standards which will appeal to many; comfortable cockpit with good storage,wide side decks for safe footing, easy to handle rig with self tacking jib, light and airy interior with accommodation to sleep up to six people. Under sail, the Southerly 32 is fast and exhilarating - and a real pleasure to helm. The modern hull shape with plumb stem and long waterline length provides impressive sailing performance whilst the broad transom, twin rudders and Whitlock direct rod steering gives instantly responsive helming and exceptional directional stability - making the yacht easy to control. Single line mainsail reefing and a Furlex on the self tacking jib makes sail handling easy, ideal for family or short handed sailing.The furling self tacking jib means you can tack spontaneously, allowing you to sail in conditions that a conventional sail plan may not allow, such as in a harbour or conjested sailing area.
