Cherubini Classic 20 Design Features

Fast, smooth and dry by design!

The original boats of the early 20th century that inspired this runabout had very hollow, concave bow sections running back to very flat sterns. They were fast, but they pounded in waves and were very wet. The unique Cherubini Classic runabouts have convex sections forward running back to a constant deadrise V-section aft.

We know that for any given weight, as the beam gets wider, the deadrise angle has to reduce. We chose a beam of 6’-10” and a deadrise angle of 20° which gives us good flotation to weight ratio. So ultimately, the hull design of the Cherubini Classic 20 provides a fast and dry ride for the helmsman and passengers.

Lifting strakes at the chine run the full length of the hull with a slight downward angle forward and a horizontal run aft. From our current powerboat design science we know the proper relations between center of pressure, center of profile area, and center of gravity. We hit a home run with this combination because the Cherubini “Roaring 20s” are fast, stable in turns, and push softly through oncoming waves. Driving one is like driving a Porsche with Rolls Royce suspension.

The real thing.

The deck of the Cherubini Classic runabouts is made of the finest mahogany with tight grain for lasting quality and beauty. The decks are finished with more than a dozen protective coats of luminous varnish. Decks can also be produced with gel coat and non-skid surface for lower maintenance.



Pure strength.

Cherubini Yachts Classic 20 is engineered with resin infusion technology, one of the cleanest fiberglass manufacturing processes ever developed. It produces laminates with the strongest and stiffest mechanical properties, and more consistently, than traditional FRP processes.


Raw power, custom comfort.

As with all the our runabouts, she can be outfitted with outboard or inboard power as well as jet packages with gas or diesel engine. With standard power, this beautiful high performance runabout will easily cruise at more than 30 knots while sprinting at an exhilarating 44 knots when you need to race the weather, or just for the fun of it.


The Cherubini Classic 20 is designed for comfort. The skipper has a clear view forward from a sitting position, where he or she is protected from wind and spray by the windscreen. There isn't the need to stand as you would need to in conventional modern speed boats. All seats provide plenty of leg room, with luxurious cushions and bolsters designed and built for a relaxing yet energizing ride.
