New Boat Showcase 2018
Premiering in the United States in Annapolis in October, the Dubois Naval Architects, in tandem with the Southerly design team, have developed a shorthanded cruiser with safety and security at the top of the list. The powerful rig is designed for easy sail handling, even by a crew of two people, in a variety of wind conditions. Whether coastal cruising or offshore adventures beckon, the Southerly 540 with its variable draft keel is well worth a look.
