The Cherubini 48 Staysail Schooner is stunning. Long and low, with a clipper bow, bowsprit, and schooner rig, she integrates classic themes in American sailing, the clipper ships, the Grand Banks fishing schooners, and racing schooners of the 1930s. Below decks, she embodies the classic elegance of the finest yachts. While traditional in appearance, she is fast and fully contemporary in her construction and outfitting. She is a modern classic.
The Cherubini 48 was designed by John Cherubini and is similar to her smaller sister, the Cherubini 44. She has a long waterline, narrow hull, large divided rig, and shallow Scheel keel which opens up vast areas of Chesapeake Bay and the Bahamas. She combines a Marconi-rigged main with fore and main staysails to establish a plan that can be easily handled by two people. The staysails are set up to be self-tending, and the large main is furled.
The divided sail plan allows the ultimate in versatility from an enormous sail area in light wind to a very short rig when conditions demand. Offshore sailors will appreciate the Schooner’s ability to heave-to in comfort under a deep-reefed foresail. The Cherubini 48 is a “go anywhere” boat, designed and constructed for the rigors of the long passage, yet capable of exploring the hidden backwaters of the world with its Scheel Keel drawing only 5 feet, 10 inches.
The Cherubini 48 preserves the classical appearance of yesteryear while offering the strength of fiberglass construction. Hand-finished teak, highlighted by custom stainless steel and bronze fittings and ports, incorporated with the latest construction methods and materials, will tell you that this is a yacht crafted with care and an understanding of the sea.
Below deck, the same high standards of quality and traditional elegance have been carried throughout. The standard layout is designed to accommodate a cruising couple with occasional guests very comfortably.
