    Default Re: Southerly 115 DS. (Series1?)

    We bought a 115 series 3 just 12 months ago - the last version with the single rudder, with wings added, before the twin rudder series 4

    I would endorse what a couple of others have said - definitely prefers to be sailed a bit more upright.

    Keel is 2.6 m when down and seems to point reasonably well

    There is a lot of weight downstairs, with both the castiron keel and the lump of iron in the grounding plate, which I understand will keep her well planted in a bigger sea, but makes her a bit slow I lighter someone else points out, not the biggest sail area for a boat of its length and weight

    But so spacious, solid, well built, a real pleasure to be on.

    We love ours

    Interesting. Any where I can find info and photos? Any feedback on how it steers?
