The Southerly 135 is the largest of the swing-keel Southerlys to have been built by Northshore. Wychcraft is a Series 2, designed by Rob Humphreys as the ultimate long distance cruising yacht providing shoal draft for shallow waters and deep keel capability for stiffness and windward work.
The swing keel Southerly 135 brings together the best in design and construction to provide a unique blend of performance, comfort and versatility.

Wychcraft has layout option B, which has the master cabin aft, spacious galley to port and nav station to starboard, both with splendid vision through deck house windows and saloon and dining area is at lower level, extending full width of yacht, thus providing maximum room.

Recent topsides polish, graphics replacement and careful use during her life, Wychcraft has the benefit of still being with the original owner.
