An option for a separate shower to ensuite facilities provides for added comfort. The large saloon seating area provides comfortable dining for six. Large coach roof windows provide panoramic ¬visibility taking full advantage of all-round views.
Two good size opening forward coachroof windows provide exceptional natural ventilation. The linear galley has large working surfaces with abundant storage, a stainless steel fridge, freezer, double sink and a fully gimballed cooker. The large forward cabin is fitted with v berths, which convert to a double, with good storage, natural light and ensuite facilities.
The highly developed Swing Keel design gives the freedom and versatility to sail in almost any waters. With the keel lowered, the variable draught of 89 (2.67m) makes for fast, serious passage making, with powerful windward performance. At the touch of a button, the keel can be raised, to give a shallow draught of just 27 (0.77m), perfect for exploring coastlines, shallow bays and inland waterways. The Southerly 435 conforms to EC category A. .
