See pictures from our boat test of the Southerly 49, featured in the April issue out now.

A UK south coast winter boat test is never without moody conditions. Trying to sneak out at dawn to capture first light and perhaps avail the forecasted gales, we were greeted with 30+knots on the pontoon at Itchenor, Chichester Harbour. Ocean Images’ Richard Langdon was behind the lens, and we’ve posted a selection of his photos here: Southerly 49 pictures
