We bought one a couple years ago because it fit two couples, is attractive, the biggest boat we could find that we could afford, looked and felt sturdy and seaworthy enough to sail home in a storm if necessary, and it is nimble in all but less than 5 knots of wind (but then you should either not be in a hurry or motoring anyway). In the 5 knots we have played with the assymetric spinnaker with ease. We sail on the Chesapeake Bay. We did get a PHRF rating and raced a few times. Racing is better in bigger wind.
We focused in on this model after looking for a while and comparing to several other boats between 34 and 40 feet. Ports are on our list of things to do. We are enjoying our classic Cherubini Hunter and happy with our choice. Its our place on the water and we can go where we want!
