Great sailing boat. John Cherubini was one of the best designers of the 20 century. Far as I know 30 were built under Joe Cherubini and his sons. Mostly kits with shoal draft keel.
JTC MOLDS, Inc. built 31, 32, 33/ These were tall rig (last design John did before he "sailed on") with a five foot keel.
The 32 & 33 hulls had new interior designs . Galley mod, center line shaft log & hull reinforcment hat section at the rudder skeg.
Reported to me that some of the 12 meter crews were using the boats for practice since the boats point to windward so well. Also reported was at trip off the Jersy shore in a huricane in which 4 boats were heading to the Annapolis boat show and the Raider sailed up and down the three others checking on the fleet and that the boat was very comfortable and able in those conditions. I do not recommend deliberately going out in those conditions ever.
