Seller's Description

The owner bought this boat in 2004

Standard features

Bimini, tiller steering, outboard motor, sink, porta potty, propane stove, sleeps 4 adults, compass

Extra gear included

Fenders, swim ladder, two sets of sails

Improvements to the hull, deck, rigging, engine, or interior

Ready to sail condition; well cared for Hunter - Cherubini currently on a mooring and being sailed. Color blue, LOA 25’, beam 8’. I’ve owned this boat for 17 years and kept her in good condition. I spent a great deal of money on her this year not expecting to sell her but an opportunity to buy a friends boat was presented to me.

2021 improvements include: New Bimini, new faux teak cabin and cockpit floor, LED lights bulbs all around, new nav lights on top of mast and stern, solar lights on mast and cockpit, new bottom paint (every year), new cushions, new deck paint, new depth sounder, new water reserve, new porta potty, 15hp outboard professionally serviced (running well). Also relatively new compass, hull liner, galley top, hand rails, custom tiller arm, custom cabinet doors, companionway door etc.

Calculations

Hull Speed
7.0 kn
Classic: 6.02 kn

Hull Speed

The theoretical maximum speed that a displacement hull can move efficiently through the water is determined by it's waterline length and displacement. It may be unable to reach this speed if the boat is underpowered or heavily loaded, though it may exceed this speed given enough power. Read more.

Formula

Classic hull speed formula:

Hull Speed = 1.34 x √LWL

A more accurate formula devised by Dave Gerr in The Propeller Handbook replaces the Speed/Length ratio constant of 1.34 with a calculation based on the Displacement/Length ratio.

Max Speed/Length ratio = 8.26 ÷ Displacement/Length ratio.311
Hull Speed = Max Speed/Length ratio x √LWL

7.04 knots
Classic formula: 6.02 knots
Sail Area/Displacement
16.8
16-20: good performance

Sail Area / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the power of the sails relative to the weight of the boat. The higher the number, the higher the performance, but the harder the boat will be to handle. This ratio is a "non-dimensional" value that facilitates comparisons between boats of different types and sizes. Read more.

Formula

SA/D = SA ÷ (D ÷ 64)2/3

  • SA: Sail area in square feet, derived by adding the mainsail area to 100% of the foretriangle area (the lateral area above the deck between the mast and the forestay).
  • D: Displacement in pounds.
16.75
<16: under powered
16-20: good performance
>20: high performance
Ballast/Displacement
46.7
>40: stiffer, more powerful

Ballast / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the stability of a boat's hull that suggests how well a monohull will stand up to its sails. The ballast displacement ratio indicates how much of the weight of a boat is placed for maximum stability against capsizing and is an indicator of stiffness and resistance to capsize.

Formula

Ballast / Displacement * 100

46.74
<40: less stiff, less powerful
>40: stiffer, more powerful
Displacement/Length
209.2
200-275: moderate

Displacement / Length Ratio

A measure of the weight of the boat relative to it's length at the waterline. The higher a boat’s D/L ratio, the more easily it will carry a load and the more comfortable its motion will be. The lower a boat's ratio is, the less power it takes to drive the boat to its nominal hull speed or beyond. Read more.

Formula

D/L = (D ÷ 2240) ÷ (0.01 x LWL)³

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds.
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet
209.19
<100: ultralight
100-200: light
200-300: moderate
300-400: heavy
>400: very heavy
Comfort Ratio
17.2
<20: lightweight racing boat

Comfort Ratio

This ratio assess how quickly and abruptly a boat’s hull reacts to waves in a significant seaway, these being the elements of a boat’s motion most likely to cause seasickness. Read more.

Formula

Comfort ratio = D ÷ (.65 x (.7 LWL + .3 LOA) x Beam1.33)

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet
  • LOA: Length overall in feet
  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet
17.15
<20: lightweight racing boat
20-30: coastal cruiser
30-40: moderate bluewater cruising boat
40-50: heavy bluewater boat
>50: extremely heavy bluewater boat
Capsize Screening
2.0
>2.0: better suited for coastal cruising

Capsize Screening Formula

This formula attempts to indicate whether a given boat might be too wide and light to readily right itself after being overturned in extreme conditions. Read more.

Formula

CSV = Beam ÷ ³√(D / 64)

  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet
  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
2.04
<2: better suited for ocean passages
>2: better suited for coastal cruising

Notes

This is said to be the first sailboat built by Hunter Marine (USA).
Shoal draft version: 2.92’/0.89m
