“The boats of Frit and his son Lee Cherubini are certainly the stuff of dreams” – Ferenc Mate. And Sagacity, this Cherubini 44 certainly makes that point well. Known for their clipper bows, long sheerlines, and the glowing varnish of their superior woodwork, these yachts evoke classic sailing like no others. The attention to detail is evident throughout – from the intensely perfect joinery, to the thoughtful deck layout – including the unique twin cockpit layout, one for the captian, and one for the guests.
Sagacity is a US Coast Guard Certified custom yacht, embodying the timeless design of the Cherubini 44, with the ultra luxurious interior and superb quality and engineering of a Rolls Royce. In a “Flagship” article, Sail Magazine wrote, “…She is one of the most lucid and beautiful large personal cruising boats imaginable, an impressive marriage of form and function.”
Cherubini’s are a wonder in construction, with each boat taking a minimum of 10,000 man hours to complete. All drawers are made of solid wood, and the floors are plywood bulkheads, stiffened with 1-inch by 3-inch solid wood on either side. Like the clippers of old that they invoke, these yachts are made to last.
As John Cherubini once said, “A yacht should be graceful enough to be worthy of the sea.” We’d say Sagacity certainly is.
She lies in Dutch Wharf Marina, in Connecticut and is listed at $295,000 USD.
