The owner bought this boat in 2006
General condition and any additional information
Boat is currently in Shipwright Harbor Marina in Deale, MD. Slip fee for second half of the year is due July 1st, boat can stay in the slip if you want it. Price is negotiable depending on how far I get with projects, take it now and save me the effort and yourself some money.
1981 Cherubini Hunter 27 tall rig with shoal (shallow) draft that draws 36 making this a great boat for the Bay.
Galley with sink, fresh water faucet, and icebox. Nav table, separate head with closing door and sink. Sleeps 5, 2 adults in v-berth and 3 on both settees and quarterberth.
There is an active Cherubini Hunter owners group forum on https://forums.sailboatowners.com, also one on Facebook
Extra gear included
Equipment/spares included: - Gennaker with sock - Spare anchor - Phifertex sun shade awnings - Lee cloths - 2 auto-inflating life jackets - Butane cartridge stove for cooking - Galley has built-in ice box - Spares for engine and minor repairs - Lubricants, nuts and bolts, etc. - Original manuals and Yanmar tools - Tool box with fairly complete set of tools - Charts, etc., in nav table - Binoculars - Hand-held radio
Improvements to the hull, deck, rigging, engine, or interior
Upgrades done include: - Added roller furling with a new genoa (150%) from Bacon Sails in - Spring 2012 - New main sail from Bacon - Spring 2015 - Prop tuned, prop shaft re-balanced, new cutless bearing, new motor mounts, Teflon packing in shaft seal and everything aligned - Fall 2012 - New HDPE bushing for rudder post and SS steel inserts for steering quadrant - 2012 - The old bronze Perko fuel filter was switched to Racor spin-on - 2013 - New hatches for v-berth and main cabin - Summer 2016 - Yanmar 1GM Engine pulled and new ring put on cylinder. While engine was out the fuel tank, water lift muffler, and all fuel lines and hoses were replaced. Summer 2017 - New anchor light and antenna - Fall 2017 - Fuel pump on engine replaced - Fall 2020 - Lid on holding tank for head pulled and tank cleaned and lines from head to tank replaced - Summer 2013 - Lid on water tank pulled, tank scrubbed, added 2nd, larger inspection port, replaced all water lines and the head faucet - Fall 2020
Projects to finish: - Recover cushions - Head started leaking, seals need replaced - Some dings in hull - Needs new bottom paint - Canvas is serviceable, but will need replaced in the next several years - I have narrowed down leaks to several places that need tightened or fittings re-bedded - Knotmeter currently not working - Tachometer doesnt read correctly - I do not know the age of the rigging
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.
Classic hull speed formula:
Hull Speed = 1.34 x √LWLA 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
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.
SA/D = SA ÷ (D ÷ 64)2/3
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.
Ballast / Displacement * 100
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.
D/L = (D ÷ 2240) ÷ (0.01 x LWL)³
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.
Comfort ratio = D ÷ (.65 x (.7 LWL + .3 LOA) x Beam1.33)
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.
CSV = Beam ÷ ³√(D / 64)
Shoal draft/wing keel: 3.25’, Disp. 7200 lbs.
Later boats were available with Yanmar diesel.
Total (100%): 362 ft2/33.63m2
