Custom built to exacting standards with a lineage that traces to the renowned Hans Christian sailing yachts and the Cherubini ketches and schooners, the Cherubini Independence offers a solid and extremely rugged design with the dramatic flair of a North Sea workboat coupled with great craftsmanship and the beauty of a luxury cruiser.  This is one handsome vessel! 

A true Pilothouse design built by a company with generations of boat building experience, each Cherubini Independence was custom built for their original owners so no two are exactly the same.  This boat was fitted with extra fuel capacity and has upgraded aluminum framed windows and secure pilothouse doors for example, along with a whirlpool tub and custom cabinetry. The Pilothouse has the look and feel of a true ocean-going vessel capable of safely handling whatever you encounter!

Powered by twin Cummins 6BTA diesels rated at 370 HP each, her equipment list is quite long, 10kW Northern Lights Generator, Wesmar Stabilizers, 24 VDC Bow Thruster, 400 GPD Watermaker, Spare Propellers and Shaft for starters.

She has benefitted from knowledgeable owners  who have cruised the east coast of the US and the Caribbean in her regularly.  She sits ready to take you and your crew on new adventures!
