OK ! can't resist. John Cherubini Was one of the best designers of all time. Who built the boat is most important. The 37 is a very good choice BUT water sailing">Blue Water sailing it demands refit as others have explained. The old Fast Passage 39 was a round the world raced boat and performed well. The only compliant was the stock sheet winches were too small. The boat performed well was comfortable and when I looked at it after the race in Annapolis MD. it looked fine. Can't say that for most stock boats that are raced. Cruising is another story of course but you could be in some "I wish I weren't here" weather or as an old Rudder magazine cartoon put it ( picture two guys in weather gear">foul weather gear BIG waves raining) "MUST BE HELL ASHORE" caption. Old boats ( 10 yrs.+) usually need a total refit no matter how they are used. Preplanning an ocean crossing or any long distance sailing is always required.

HI - I have a H27 in Pensacola that has been in my family since 1983, boat is 1981. Its a great boat 4 size, no complaints. next 2 me @ sabine marina is a 1981 H37. The owner is a long time member of Mobile Yacht Club and has owned several boats. He bought this one on Chesapeake Bay and sailed it ALL the way 2 Mobile in 1 trip, (about 2 mts), and says the trip was best part of boat. It is a very good looking vessel and I am green with envy. I dont care what anyone says, these cherubini hunters r a great value and realitivy easy 2 maintain.

Re: Hunter Cherubini 37 - Thoughts ?

Ran across a pic of my previous H37 Cutter and thought I would add it to this old thread.

The H37 Cutter is a great boat! Owned one for many years. Did lots of near coastal heavy weather sailing in the Gulf of Mexico and NW Carib. Would not hesitate to take one offshore. I have met several owners who have done trans-atlantic crossings in theirs and had nothing but good to say.

I almost bought Rainbow Chaser when I was looking for another boat and living in Rockport, Tx. There was and probably still is a lot of info on a Hunter website.

Anyway, I think the older Cherubini's were the best boats Hunter ever produced.

By some... a few of us just have a sense of 'Superiority'... or so I've been told...
H37's are very nice to sail...

Re: Hunter Cherubini 37 - Thoughts ?

Used to own one. Like most owners I loved my 37C!!

Never technically did any trans-oceanic runs aboard her (though I know a few other owners who have), but road out plenty of rough weather on her in the GOM (easily one of the potentially nastiest bodies of water on the planet). Cruised her all around the GOM and N. Carib.

Sails great. Well behaved in heavy weather.
