Broker’s Comments

Southerly Yachts have always been the premier builder of well-crafted variable draft cruising yachts. This particular 47 is still in her original ownership and enjoyed good continuous maintenance throughout her life. Professionally laid up at the end of each season and systems regularly serviced.

Southerly 47 LUMINOUS sports dark blue topsides, teak decks, Selden carbon mast, North sails package (with gennaker and bowsprit) bow and stern thruster and comprehensive Raymarine electronics package. On deck the twin wheels create a walkthrough and spacious cockpit with all controls easily to hand, ample stowage with opening transom dinghy garage. The modern sail plan with twin forestays housing genoa and self-tacking Solent jib on furlex furlers make her easily managed by short-handed crew.

Below decks, she has two doubles, a twin cabin, the popular raised forward facing nav. station and well-equipped galley. Finished throughout in teak and blue leather saloon upholstery she makes for a very comfortable home from home.

Berthon Spain took over the yachts management in winter 2020. Since then she has enjoyed a detailed pit stop, a host of updates and is now under our guardienage so enjoying regular checks and cleaning. LUMINOUS is now offered for sale to make way for a larger replacemen and having enjoyed the Southerly, the new yacht will have many similar attributes.

Owner’s Comments

I have been proud to be the owner of LUMINOUS. She never fails to attract admiring comments from onlookers and “boaties” alike. She has delivered my young (non-sailing) family and friends, first to the Isles of Scilly and then to Sardinia via Biscay, Gibraltar and Mallorca. I have been very particular about who has maintained her, without regard to cost, hence she has returned to Mallorca to be out the water for the winter, so that she is returned to as near new condition for next season.
