John Cherubini logo

From John Cherubini was an important and admired American yacht designer during the 1970s. Cherubini grew up in the Delaware River area. In 1938 he studied naval architecture with the Westlawn program, and then worked professionally as an aviation engineer. He and his brother had a boat shop that built small outboard runabouts, in the late 1950s and early 1960’s. John also raced small sailboats, in a fleet that included Warren Luhrs. When Luhrs started Hunter Yachts in 1973, he asked John Cherubini to design the first Hunter, the Hunter 25. Cherubini was Hunter’s primary designer for a number of years. In addition to the Hunter 25, he also designed the 27, 30, 33, 36, 37, and 54. Other notable designs include the Essex 26, the Raider 33, and a number of successful powerboats.
