BOAT SHOW SPECIAL
This very lightly used, one owner blue water yacht has been lift kept on a freshwater lake since new. As you would expect given her light use and circumstances, her condition is "like new”.
Designed by Rob Humphreys and built by Northshore Shipyard, KNOT ON CALL is the only Southerly 115 model currently on the used market in the U.S.
As well, the Mk IV has the twin rudder configuration... more rudder in the water, safer with less pressure on the rudder stock, and less weather helm to carry more sail!
With the keel up, the Southerly 115 has an extreme shoal draft of only 2 feet 4 inches! With the keel all the way down, the S115 draft is an impressive 8 feet 2 inches.
SHALLOW DRAFT FREEDOM - At the touch of a button, the keel can be raised to sail in shallow waters. This means you can extend your cruising grounds considerably. Raising the swing keel gives you access to many tidal locations and allows you to berth this yacht literally on the beach or keep her at your shallow water dock or even on a lift!
DEEP DRAFT PERFORMANCE - The swing keel provides a deep draft which gives a greater stability due to the increased righting moment. In practice the boat is stiffer, carries her sail better and carves her way efficiently to windward in any seaway. The swing keel's air foil shape is highly efficient - and allows you to point high (typically 30 degrees).
Knot on Call is currently sitting in Annapolis, MD eagerly awaiting her new owner!
As a recent full time solo cruiser and live aboard, I can offer you many insights and shared experience in choosing your next boat. This includes technical as well as outfitting advice. As a corporate "graduate" I can offer you a customer service experience that has my full attention and includes both negotiation, insurance, and finance skills.

And, I can be there to help manage your showing, survey, insurance needs, financing options, and closing activities… whew!
Also, please, don't forget! I am always looking for good, quality sail and power boat listings. Call me to discuss your current boat and how we can maximize its sale and minimize it’s time on the market.

Since the original Southerly 115 series was introduced into the Southerly range in 1983, she has outrivalled many yachts of her size. Following on from the series II, and series III, the new Southerly 115 benefits from over twenty years of continuous development. Combined with the existing Rob Humphrey's Swing Keel' the new twin rudder configuration and increased mainsail area provide outstanding sailing performance and improved handling.
When you enter this yacht through the companion way you are greeted by an open and airy galley to port and the nav station to starboard with full views outside. There are stainless steel grab rails everywhere, the teak joinery is stunning, and storage abounds. Concertina blinds which are very easy to open/close or adjust to any point cover the raised salon windows. There are custom curtains on all the ports and even a nice area starboard of the companion way which can be used as a wet locker. For more details on the galley and nav station see below.
Forward of the galley and down a step is the large salon to port with generous "U" shaped seating and a settee to starboard. The table pivots and also raises to the ceiling to allow easy access to the port settee at both the forward and aft ends. The table also lowers to convert to a double berth and can expand to allow additional seating for dining on the starboard side. Two large storage areas are found under both the starboard and port settees.
Forward of the salon is the forward cabin. It boasts two single berths with storage outboard and under. To port there is an outboard shelf and to starboard there is a large pull out storage bin. Forward there are two drop lockers. This space also offers excellent lighting with an opening foredeck hatch with screen /shade blind and two side ports. The two over and under berths are 78" in length.
Aft of the nav station to starboard is the head. There is a large window here with blinds for plenty of light and great headroom. It boasts a Jabasco sea toilet with both holding tank and overboard discharge capability. There is a vanity with a large sink, hot and cold pressure water, a pull out shower head, solar extractor fan, and a seat over the toilet. Storage includes outboard closed shelves and a large locker under the sink.
Aft of the galley is the passageway to the master cabin. In the passageway inboard are 2 doors which provide excellent engine room access. Outboard there is a large hanging locker with additional storage for the salon berth filler. Aft of this passageway is a private door to the aft cabin.
The aft cabin has a double berth with filler and a very nice seat and vanity to starboard with 6 feet of head room. The queen berth is approx 78" by 52". There is a storage locker also to starboard and three deep cupboards aft. This space also offers excellent lighting with an opening aft deck hatch with screen / shade blind and 6 ports, 4 of which open.
The galley is to port as you first come down the companionway with excellent lighting and views outside. This makes for excellent access to the cockpit. It boasts generous stowage and counter space, and an opening hatch overhead to the deck with screen / shade blind. There is a nice cubby just forward of the galley for all the small things, a closed cupboard with a shelf outboard, and three drawers below. There is also a cleverly designed secure plate rack. Headroom is just over six feet by the saloon table, increasing to about 6' 4" by the nav station and galley.
The nav station & chart table is forward facing, starboard, opposite the galley. You have excellent visibility from this seat as you look directly out the pilothouse window forward and another large window beside. Good ventilation is provided with a hatch overhead. There is a stainless steel grab rail beside the nav seat to hold you in when heeled over. Interior throttle and steering is by Autohelm control panel, rather than a wheel, which takes up too much space. Plenty of storage is found under this seat, on an outboard shelf, below the table lid.
This yacht is a masthead rigged sloop (for that extra performance) with two spreaders. The mast and boom are Selden anodised aluminum. The standing rigging is all stainless steel.

Thickness increases progressively toward the keel area. The keel box is an integral part of the hull layup.
