Please call our Clarke & Carter Caribbean Office – 001 473 4039296 to arrange a viewing or to obtain further details. Built originally with the intention of Arctic voyaging, this round-bilge steel centreboard cutter is very strongly built by a respected yard.
The round-bilge hull is in 5mm steel, with the deck and coachroof in 4mm steel, all with an epoxy base paint system with two-pack polyurethane finish. The present owner has had the original rather spartan interior refitted by a shipwright, with most joinery in solid teak. The chain locker is a deep moulded GRP bin with two access hatches, built into the bulkhead between forecabin and heads, thus bringing the substantial weight of the chain out of the bows. When these photos were taken in early November 2013 there were some small trim pieces removed from around some ports and hatches: these have now been replaced.
Above: The main engine is a 40 hp Yanmar diesel, with an aquadrive coupling to the propshaft, and driving a Maxprop feathering propeller. Left: Under the cockpit to starboard is a 7 hp Kubota diesel powering a 55 amp alternator to allow battery charging without running the main engine.


To port, aft of the cockpit, is a second electric windlass and stern roller for a stern anchor. The vane self-steering gear is a stainless steel Cape Horn, seen here without vane or paddle.
This is a very impressive long-distance cruiser, and although she was first built with high-latitudes cruising in mind, is actually well set up for warmer climes as well, with many opening hatches with built-in inner blinds and flyscreens, bimini, etc.
A round bilged, heavy displacement hull with keel hung rudder, this is an ideal liveaboard world girdler, a proper little ship. Voyages include Pacific and Atlantic crossings from New Caledonia to the Caribbean, from the Arctic to Africa. The centreboard was cast from the same mould as the Southerly 115 keel, but cast in lead instead of iron as used in Southerlys.
She has a forecabin and aft cabin each with a double sized berth, and a heads compartment forward to starboard.
In her current ownership he has undergone a thorough refit and refurbishment at considerable expense and is now ready for further adventures. Custom Steel Cutter DescriptionThis Custom Steel Cutter Rigged Blue Water Cruiser is Unique.
She has a nicely finished interior with 4 berths, with lots of stowage and tankage for extended cruising.


Purchased in Norway in 2010 for a Pole to Pole scientific expedition, she was sailed to the Arctic, then down to Africa and then to the Caribbean. Apart from the lead centreboard, there is additional ballast in a Southerly-style keel plate.
The interior of the boat is finished in teak joinery with full mahogany paneling throughout. Owner's CommentsIn summary Limerik is a very stable, fast, comfortable, safe and secure yacht.
