Upgraded 1976 Columbia 9.6M

Price: $22,500.00

General Description:
We use her as a racer/cruiser and she has proven herself with multiple wins and season trophies on Tampa Bay and Gulf of Mexico. New 155% Genoa 2014 from Advanced Sails in St. Pete, as well as recent UK Dacron cruising main. Cherub has also been fitted with a inner forestay that can be attached quickly and then sailed as a cutter for strong winds, while still maintaining speed and upwind ability. She also has a nice pink on pink asymmetrical cruising spinnaker that we use for light air days. Cherub has proven to be a very strong dry boat at sea. Glassed-in stringers run throughout length of hull stiffening hull and making for a very durable safe boat in all kinds of weather. Cherub is a fun safe strong boat to go fast in, without breaking the bank.
