Southerly 28 ‘ASSEGAI’ – SOLD

Mark Cameron Yachts are delighted to announce the successful sale of the Southerly 28 ‘ASSEGAI’.

The Southerly 28, designed by John Bennett was the design which started the now renowned range of lifting keel cruisers from Southerly. Despite being a design of the 1970’s some of the features found in this little cruiser have carried on to the boats produced today. During a production run spanning 1975 – 1984 a total of 148 boats were built before the updated Southerly 100 started production. With her lifting keel, Southerly’s acknowledged ability to ‘float on a damp lawn’ and pilothouse design the little Southerly 28 offers great accommodation and flexible cruising ability for a boat of her modest size.

With her current owner for more than 35 years, ASSEGAI has benefitted from continual investment and a significant amount of refitting in the last few years. Her inventory highlights include:

  • Beta Marine BD1005, 28hp marine diesel engine, installed 1999
  • New laminated hardwood rudder professionally made and fitted 2018
  • Hull professionally two-pack painted 2018.
  • Deck and superstructure professionally two-pack painted 2018.
  • New alloy framed glass deckhouse windows professionally installed 2018.
  • Lifting keel replaced with new stainless steel item 2018.
  • Keel lifting mechanism stripped and overhauled in 2018.
  • Pressurised hot and cold water system
  • Cabin heating

In need of some cosmetic re-finishing ASSEGAI is going to be treated to a winter under cover with her new owners embarking on a re-fit this winter. We look forward to seeing a modernised ASSEGAI on the water next summer with her new owners and their children enjoying this fantastic boat.
