Freebird
1981 31' SOUTHERN CROSS Sloop SC31 Georgetown Maryland United States
$31,000 USD


The 1981 31' SOUTHERN CROSS SC31 Sloop Freebird is a sail boat for sale located in Georgetown, Maryland, United States.

The Southern Cross 31 is a no nonsense double-ender designed by Tom Gillmer, a professor of naval architecture at the US Naval Academy. The design takes influence from shapes dating back to Colin Archer's work nearly a century earlier, and the hull in many respects is similar the straight transomed Allied Seawind 30, an earlier Gillmer creation notable for being the first fiberglass boat to circumnavigate the globe.

She's a full keeled sailboat with an outboard rudder and tiller combo, a configuration often praised for its simplicity and the cockpit is quite small, suitable for ocean passages. The cutter rig with bowsprit has 447 sq. ft. of canvas, with a 130% roller furling jib giving the sailor plenty of flight wind options. Her heavy displacement design gives dividends with a comfortable motion while underway.
