Year 1990
Length 44 ft
Builder/Manufacturer Cherubini

Traditional performance oriented cruising designed by John Cherubini with styling cues taken from  L. Francis Herreshoff's  famous Ticonderoga. Graceful with a sweeping shear line and low freeboard the Cherubini in a modern classic that has proven her worth in offshore racing and sea kindly cruising.

Build construction is uncompromised and evident through out the vessel. She has had three care givers to date. The first owner used the boat as a show piece at the dock in front of his house. The second owner day sailed the boat and raced her in classic regattas namely Antigua Race week. The current owner imported the boat to the West Coast for family summer cruising.  

Winsome's current condition is excellent and one gets the feeling that she has always been kept in ship shape.

Manufacturer Provided Description
Designed in the tradition of L. Francis Herreshoff's "Ticonderoga," the Cherubini 44 with her sweeping sheer, low freeboard and raked spars recalls the elegance of a bygone era. Yet she is a yacht for today, incorporating the latest in high-performance hull design and construction technology. The Cherubini 44 was conceived as a cruising vessel - easy to handle with just two people, with a seakindly motion and luxuriously appointed accommodations. She is, nonetheless, a proven performer that has lead her class in many prestigious offshore races. She's surprisingly close-winded and is able to ghost in the light airs of summer, yet she will beat to windward in Force 6 winds and 7-foot Atlantic seas with nothing more than blown spray on her decks. Her revolutionary Scheel Keel enables her to climb to weather like a deep-keeled vessel, while she maintains all the cruising flexibility of a shoal-draft boat. With the exception of structural components, every Cherubini may be custom-designed to meet the exacting requirements of her new owner. Or one of the two standard layouts may be selected. In either case, every detail, above deck and below, will be meticulously completed by expert craftsmen. With a draft of only 4 feet 10 inches, there are no problems getting into any harbor or anchorage. And snugged down at night, the Cherubini 44 becomes a gracious floating home.
