Ananda the Cherubini 44 is a classic sailing ketch.She needs some TLC as the brightwork has burned through in spots. She hasn't been used much in the last few seasons. Her ketch rig is easy for solo or short-handed sailing. She can carry an enormous amount of sail to reach fast in light air or reef down for a blast on a windy day.

Manufacturers 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.
