Quick Look: Cherubini 44

Cruising World 2008 New Boat Showcase

September 12, 2007

In the 30th Anniversary, 2007 Edition, Cherubini 44, trailboards and a wineglass transom bookend John Cherubini’s paean to L. Francis Herreshoff’s enduring contribution to classic yacht styling. Although re-engineered to utilize new materials and techniques, the boat gives up none of the appeal of its faithful expression of the traditional cruising yacht. Its practical and functional interior basks in light reflected off raised-panel bulkheads and rich mahogany, reminding us of the purpose and utility of such old-fashioned details as deep fiddles around the galley and cane-fronted cabinets.

Ketch rigged, the Cherubini 44 is bound to stand out in harbors full of sloops, while its crew will benefit from the opportunities for balance offered by its menu of four working sails.
