1979 Cherubini 44' Custom Sailboat
(Available to view at the Annapolis Sailboat Show October 8-12, 2015)
White Hawk is a one-of-a-kind Cherubini 44’ sailing yacht (50’ LOA) designed by John E. Cherubini. She was the “show boat” of the original Cherubini Boat Company in Riverside, New Jersey and has recently had extensive restoration done on her. John personally selected the layout and deck configuration to combine extraordinary good looks with practical cruising needs. She’s had an extensive rebuild of her structure and systems, a life spent mostly in protected waters and winters in indoor storage. A crew of two have sailed her well both in light and strong winds due to her flexible sail plan and legendary Cherubini hull design. (See video of her steady performance in a Chesapeake Gale). Her top tier scantlings have stood the test of time.
She is both fast and stable due to her design and six tons of lead in her external keel (new Scheel keel by Mars Metal in 2012). Ever since she was built, sailing publications have documented White Hawk’s head turning beauty, robust construction and exceptional sailing ability. Her two owners took good care of her with her rebuilding done by top quality yards. White Hawk has a unique 3-cabin varnished mahogany interior, which makes a quiet comfortable home whether snugged down at your favorite anchorage or reaching along at nine knots. She features a “Watch cabin” with two bunks and a galley just forward of the cockpit. A generous ketch rig provides flexibility and manageability over a wide range of wind speeds. Features include Furuno radar & chart plotter, Furuno autopilot and wind indicator, Max Prop, Dutchman rigging on main and mizzen, self-tending Staysail, and roller furling Yankee or Genoa. Lee and Rick Cherubini, part of the original building crew for White Hawk, stand ready to tell you her story, and personalize her to your own specifications.
