A LUXURIOUS BLUE WATER PERFORMANCE YACHT
- BUILT TO CROSS OCEANS
& TO SNEAK INTO SHALLOW COVES WITH LESS THAN 4 FEET!
The Southerly 57RS was designed by Ed Dubois and Southerly Yachts design team:
First to be a no compromise, safe, elegant, world cruising yacht that can easily be sailed by two.
Second criteria was to make her a powerful and fast sailing yacht that takes full advantage of the trademark Southerly Swing Keel.
When the keel on this 57ft yacht is fully up she draws only 3 foot 6 inches and can go places you can only imagine! When fully extended the foil shaped keel reaches a depth of 10 feet 9 inches! Giving you a pointing ability that other cruising yachts can only dream of. In moderate air, sailing at 30% to the wind is what you can expect!
If you wish, all points of sail can be enhanced at the push of a button, tuning the keel depth to achieve maximum performance. To enhance performance even further “Tristan B” has a carbon rig, rod rigging, hydraulic bowsprit and a very high quality sail inventory. All sail handling is push button!
The interior of “Tristan B” is beautifully finished in high quality Teak and Very Well Appointed. The raised salon provides panoramic views that the owner and guests can enjoy while dining or sailing. The navigation area is also raised to provide an excellent line of sight from inside the yacht. Further, the very complete electronics suite includes remote auto pilot and full engine controls for those long cold delivery nights.
The following listing and pictures will provide you with an overall impression of this yacht. However the only way you can fully appreciate the beauty and quality of “Tristan B” is to spend some time aboard.

In 2011 SAIL Magazine awarded the Southerly 57 as the Best Boat Winner for flagship monohulls. Following is an excerpt from their announcement.
"One day you might be power-reaching across an ocean, logging double-digit speeds under a massive A-sail set on a retracting bowsprit. On another day you may be tacking effortlessly up a narrow channel, putting the helm over and watching the self-tacking jib slam across its track, enjoying the windward bite and responsive steering of a deep-drafted performance cruiser. Or you may have nosed up to a beach, the boat sitting upright on the hard sand as the tide recedes, your children playing in the shadow of the sleek hull.
If you own a Southerly 57RS all this and more is possible, which is why we had no hesitation in singling this boat out from a strong group of contenders. Designed by Ed Dubois and built in Britain by Northshore Yachts, the 57RS is the flagship of a line of strong, seaworthy and well-crafted variable-draft sailboats. It is a bluewater-capable cruiser with a difference."
The overall feeling as you enter "Tristan B" is one of openness, light and elegance. The warm teak interior is accented with high end soft goods, finishes and stainless accents. Although you are inside the yacht, your horizons are expanded with large deck salon windows - allowing you to enjoy views normally only available while on deck!
This yacht has a 3 cabin layout with a spacious aft master stateroom. Forward is a large guest stateroom and a mid-ships cabin providing excellent accommodations for guest and crew.
The large expansive salon is raised so that you have panoramic views while dining or while you are sailing. On the portside is a dining area. The table has 2 folding leaves and can also be lowered to provide an additional berth. To starboard there are two comfortable chairs that are also raised with a cocktail table in between. Inside the table is storage.
Overhead there are many opening hatches and a center skylight providing a view of sails and the evening stars. The forward facing and side windows give the salon a very light and open feeling. All the windows have concertina blinds. The blinds on the three forward windows are remotely controlled.
Just aft of the dining area, on the port side is the navigation station which is also raised allowing one a line of site while within the yacht. More on this in the "Nav" section.
Forward and to port of the main salon is the galley. The forward salon seating has an open backseat into the dining area so the cook never feels separate of the guests. This is a true Chefs Galley! More details on this in the "Galley" section below.
Just across from the galley is a seating area with a desk, storage and a cabinet for glassware. The galley and the Nook combine to make a second gathering area separate yet adjoining the salon, expanding the feeling of space and encouraging conversation.
The large owner’s stateroom is aft of the salon and entered from the starboard side. There is a centerline queen berth with a night stand on either side. To port there is a full size settee with back cushions. The feeling of space in the owner’s cabin is enhanced by viewing ports to starboard and to port. There are also several opening ports and a large overhead hatch over the berth. There are many storage cabinets, shelving, hanging lockers and drawers. Just forward of the settee is a vanity with mirror and seating. Opposite the berth is a flat screen TV.
There is an ensuite head with Corian counters and a large separate shower with a teak seat. There is an elegant stainless and glass shower door separating it from the head. There is excellent storage and light in this area.
Guest Cabin 1
The larger of the two guest cabins is forward and has a centerline berth and seating on either side. There are viewing ports to port and to stbd as well as a large hatch overhead. For entertainment there is a flat screen TV w/DVD mounted on the aft bulkhead. There is a hanging locker, 2 large drawers under the berth and some cabinets for storage. A private entrance into the guest head is aft and to port. This is a very comfortable cabin for guests.
Guest Cabin 2
Forward of the nook and to starboard is the second guest or captain’s cabin. This is a nice sized cabin with full sized over and under single berths and a seat. There is drawer and hanging storage and proper room to move about.
Forward of the galley and across from the 2nd guest cabin is the entrance to the forward head. This head is shared with the forward cabin. Corian counters, mirrored cabinet doors and a separate shower with an elegant stainless and glass door are just some of her features.
Following are some of Tristan B's interior features and equipment:
The large galley is forward of the salon in a lower position for comfort at sea. The galley has a large working area, yet is shaped to provide safety. The partially open back to the salon seating allows the chef to still partake with his or her guests.
This is a true Chefs Galley! All stainless steel appliances, an over and under home-size refrigerator and freezer – glass door stainless steel wine cooler – a four burner stove with oven – a Microwave – a Splendide washer/dryer and the finest Miele espresso/coffee maker we have seen on a yacht! The extensive counter surfaces are Corian.
As you can see in some of the pictures, there is an abundance of storage lockers and cupboards for food and supplies. All doors and drawer are self soft closing. Of course, the water maker controls are discreetly but conveniently located in the galley as well.
More details follows:
The nav area is conveniently situated at the base of the companionway on the port side. This area is raised allowing one a line of site while within the yacht. A large comfortable swiveling helm seat with fold down arm rests locks you in place. In addition to the very complete electronics suite at the Nav station, "Tristan B" has full engine controls & an autopilot at the Nav allowing you to drive from within this yacht.
The Southerly 57 is primarily designed for easy handling, and can be sailed by just 2 people. The tall powerful rig with swept back spreaders will keep the yacht sailing fast, with minimum effort. The double head sail is suitable for most wind conditions; the self-tacking jib allows you to sail easily on short tacks without any effort - ideal for coastal cruising. The overlapping genoa enhances upwind performance in light airs and together, the double headsail is perfect for downwind trade wind sailing.
The hull is characterised by a long waterline, fine entry and beam carried aft to ensure the highest degree of performance, comfort, stability and safety. The beautifully sleek stylish lines of the raised pilot house coachroof exudes sophistication and elegance, normally only seen on much larger yachts. The large fold down transom door gives access to a large stowage area, ideal for a dinghy or diving equipment. When the door is lowered it makes a great bathing platform and provides good access for boarding.
The Swing Keel is an essential feature on a yacht of this size. While the deep draft of 10' 9" provides excellent windward performance, stability and good sail carrying capabilities, the extra depth is restrictive in marinas and around shorelines, etc. At the 'touch of a button' the keel can be raised to give a shallow draft of only 3' 6" - perfect for coastlines, low tides and those shallow waters that most all other sailboats cannot get into.
The aft cockpit is extremely spacious, yet secure with comfortable seating and a large cockpit table for entertaining guests in style. For convenience there is a refrigerated box in the table. A glass windscreen provides great visibility and extra protection from the elements. Covering the cockpit is a grand bimini creating a real outdoor room.
The twin wheels allows the helmsman to enjoy the powerful performance of the yacht, with dedicated areas for sail controls and sailing short handed. Further seating aft allows for guests to relax in comfort, while enjoying all round views.
