The new handbuilt Cherubini Classic 24 has all the style of a pedigreed Italian power launch at a fraction of the price. The mahogany-decked runabout in fact hails from Delran, New Jersey, where Cherubini Yachts was established in 1975. Priced at $168,000, above the waterline the craft faithfully honors the style of sporty speedboats from the 1930s to 1950, down to the real mahogany decks and stainless steel hardware. Below the is a modern, advanced fiberglass hull that enables a smoother, drier ride with more control. The elegant craft cruises smoothly in the 35 mph range and sprints powerfully into the 50 mph range. With masterful control and powerful performance, piloting a Cherubini is like driving a Porsche with Rolls-Royce suspension. The company can also build you a Veloce model equipped with a 300 hp V8 engine and a Silent Choice exhaust system, custom painted with a speed-striped deck in your racing colours. The aft cockpit has a leather upholstered bench seat and two side seats, with a table that can swing out of the way so passengers can enjoy the ride as well.
