That 37 cutter rig boat was on my list when I was in the hunt for a boat. Owners seem to like them. Finding one that's been kept up, like all boats, is the key.

I have had a 1979 Hunter 37 since it was new. I too like the lines and the overall layout. Seattle to Acapulco and back over a nine year period from '86 to '95; lots of offshore. No complaints with the boat. Now locally in Puget Sound.

Don't know anything about the H-27 but we are always getting compliments on our 1980 37' Hunter. She has the prettiest lines.

Hope you find the info you are looking for. Thanks for sharing the excerpt. I love that there is a little history behind our boat.

Do not have knowledge on the H-27 but would appreciate any information that you can provide on the Cherubini Raider 33, primarily sailing characteristics etc.

Years that Hunter produced Cherubini Designs

John Cherubini designs
The first boat my dad designed for Hunter (getting the contract through Bob Seidelmann) was the H-25, what I call on here the 'Mk 1', in 1972. The boat was produced for the '73 model year. (Mine is a '74. It was built in Marlboro, NJ, and sold by Sails Aweigh in Mantoloking, about 35 miles from where I found and bought it.)

There followed, in this order, the 30 in '73, the 27, in '74, the 33, the 37, then the 35 and 36 (essentially both stretched 33s), the 54 in '78-79. The 25 and some others went through redesign by the time my dad was busier with the C-44 and C-48 for Cherubini Boat (and the Raider 33 later). You will note that the hull of the 25 looks pretty dated with its narrow IOR-flavored transom by the time of the new (raised)deck mold, about '77 or '78.

By '81 my father was very ill and Hunter, through the influence of Warren Luhrs and Lars Bergstrom, sought other design ideas. The first non-Cherubini new Hunter model was the 31, in '82. It was designed by Cort Steck (who was about my age. I called him 'the whippersnapper'). By '83, when my dad died, there were all-new Hunter models coming out, eventually attributed to the 'Hunter Design Team'-- much more heavily influenced by marketing than my dad's designs ever were) and the once-lowly, now-stalwart 27 was the last Cherubini design produced by Hunter. I would very much like to know who has the highest-HIN 27, for this representes the very LAST Cherubini-designed hull to have been built by Hunter Marine.
