Jaguar 265

One of the stunningly-beautiful Cherubini 48 schooners.  These boats were massively built and are capable world cruisers, each having been spec'd and built by their original owner, no two are alike.  VICTORIA has the master cabin aft. to port, just inside the companionway.  She has had many updates and upgrades, and would benefit from an owner who appreciates the strengths and beauty of the classic schooner.


Her classic Clipper bow, beautiful sheer and staysail schooner rig make this one special boat.  VICTORIA is the original Cherubini 48 staysail schooner, well maintained and and thoughtfully upgraded over the years.  Here is a chance to own a beautifully-built, sea-going vessel with timeless beauty and modern amenities at a fraction of her replacement cost.

Cherubini schooners have earned a reputation of being comfortable, fast, truly sea-going cruisers.  This passage from the builder's website best explains why....

Perhaps least obvious but most important, the Cherubini hull form (narrow, slack bilges, long keel) means a more comfortable boat at sea. Carl Adler's Sail Calculator website computes that the Cherubini 48 has a "Motion Comfort" index of 41. A well known contemporary boat of similar size has an index of 26. These numbers mean that the Cherubini 48 has slower rolling and pitching motions; the hull slices the water instead of pounding it. Moreover, the cabin sole is well under the water line and bunks are near the water line, where boat motion is the least. Sailors who have ventured to sea in a modern, wide, shallow hulled boat will sense the difference immediately. Voyagers on the Cherubini 48 will arrive at their destination not only quickly but comfortably. The Cherubini 48 design is optimized to function as a real sail boat at sea, not as a house at the marina.
