The Cherubini 48 staysail schooner designed by John Cherubini is just one of those amazing yachts that you can’t stop starring at. She is stunningly beautiful exactly as in your heart you just instinctively know that she is exactly perfect. Just like a sailing yacht should look; the Cherubini 48 is long and graceful with a beautiful shiply clipper bow sweeping back with a graceful sheer. With her low freeboard and handsome transom with derives from the original Grand Banks fishing schooners and racing schooners of the 30’s. She is built to impeccable standards to be a modern classic yacht.


Cherubini Yachts has long been recognized as a builder known for exquisite detail and uncompromising standards. She looks like a classic yacht of the 1930s, but she is built using modern materials and strong solid fiberglass construction. The hull is immensely strong with woven roving layup about a ½ inch thick at the bulwark to 1 1/2 inches thick at the keel.

The yachts are often customized by the first owner and in this can Principles, as she is called, was ordered with carbon fiber masts, and rod rigging with Schooner racing in her future! Modern construction and classic finish; Finish in the colors I might add. A principle has an impressive race record! The hand-finished teak gleams and is set off with the custom stainless steel and bronze fittings and ports. Everything is put together with the latest construction methods and materials. She is robustly built to the demands of the ocean and she is finished to flawless perfection. Below deck you are transplanted to a time when elegance was the standard to which a yacht was held. The teak wood is sumptuous and the joinery is superb. She is finished down below to the same high standards of quality with the richness of classical elegance. The layout is perfectly designed for a cruising couple with occasional guests. And also know that Cherubini Yachts is still in the family operating still after four generations!  

The Schooner is a perfect cruiser for a couple and a graceful racer against all the other beautiful schooners. This Cherubini 48 Staysail Schooner has done a lot of racing with her second owner and his daughters with a well known racing captain. I understand they did very well. Her current owner previously owned a Cherubini 44 and simply fell in love with Principles the moment he saw her back in 2008. He always wanted her and in 2012 he got is opportunity and although he was then in his late seventies, having sailed all his life and owned beautiful yachts, he could not resist. He sails with his wife and has lived aboard and cruised from the Abacos to Massachusetts each year for the past five years.He even more now appreciates the layout which is perfect for a couple to sail with a crew and maintain their own privacy. He added an electric winch for the mains’l and the main stays’l so he can single hand her. Last fall he made the single hand passage down the Chesapeake Bay from Annapolis to Norfolk anchoring at night and enjoying his Schooner. He says, “…as you can tell from the impressive list of race victories that she is fast… a 200 nm day on an ocean passage is not unusual. With her sea-kindly motion she is a breeze to sail.”  

She is so easy to handle with just a couple or even sail singlehanded. The hull shape is sea kindly with an easy, comfortable motion. The shoal draft Scheel keel provides perfect sailing in the Chesapeake Bay, Bahamas and even the West Coast of Florida. The tall, divided schooner rig makes for easy sail handling with two self tacking mainsails and roller furled Yankee headsail. The divided sail plan offers so many configurations that it is easy to set just the right amount of sail for everything from a lightest breeze to a gale. The schooner is easily sailed by a couple and she is the ultimate passage-maker at home on the ocean. She is heavy and safe and will heave-to sweetly with just a deeply reefed foresail. And when you sail in to any harbor all heads will turn your way to admire her stunning good looks.

Admire her, you will as she is maintained to exquisite perfection. Each year during the four or five non sailing months Principles has been indulged with all necessary maintenance and all the upgrades to the whim of the owner who loves her quite dearly. He said if he had a dollar for everyone who had admired her, he’d be a wealthy man.
