Broker’s Comments

A super cruising yacht by Southerly and Rob Humphreys. They have combined a well-performing capable cruising yacht with spectacular accommodation and all within 42’4” / 12.9m. Variable draft, a flexible, easily managed rig and fulsome inventory. She is the Swiss army knife of yachting. Still in her original ownership. She has been loved and professionally maintained from the egg.

Owner’s Comments

“BRIEF ENCOUNTER is our second Southerly and is a wonderful cruising yacht. She is stable and easy to handle, with all lines coming aft to the centre cockpit, which has kept us dry even in heavy seas. We have lived aboard for up to three weeks at a time and, with a well-equipped galley, spacious saloon with flat-screen television, and sprung mattresses in the owners’ cabin, she is truly a home from home.”
