Re: 1979 33 ft Hunter Cherubini
A few more points. The Raider 33 and the Hunter 33 hulls are nearly identical and both designed by JC (same rig, same balast, bow entry angle, the original cabin top of the Hunter is similar to the Raider).
The bow entry angle of 45 degrees of the 33 is the same as the 37
Cabin layouts of the 25, 27, 30, 33, and 37 are similar.
I've been sailing the H33C SD for about a year now in the Barnegat Bay, NJ. It sails well and has a nice cabin layout. I've had her sailing at 8 knots with just the headsail and 12 knots of wind. No ill manners. Great boat.
It is a budget production boat for the masses and hit its mark squarely. Its numbers are solid cruiser, the rig is strong with a double lower shroud and single spreader mast. There were 579 made, many of which are still in service. You can enjoy it as is or upgrade the interior with comforts and flare quite easily.
