The Cherubini Classic 255 Sport Cruiser

No mere picnic boat!

Originally introduced at the Palm Beach Boat Show in 2012, the lines of this timeless gem could have easily premiered at a Show in the 1940s. What gives away its age is the modern power, design and build technology. The Cherubini Classic 255 Sport Cruiser is shaped by a straight sheer and elliptical transom above a curved teak swim platform. Beautiful mahogany decks, helm dash and engine cover provide a rich, nautical presence. This semi-custom boat is also available with fiberglass decks.

The Cherubini Classic 255 Sport Boat is more than a picnic boat. It's the ideal boat to cruise to dinner aboard and she makes a very special megayacht tender. Whether sight-seeing on the Intracoastal or having fun offshore, you will be treated to smooth, soft and dry ride.

Design Features

Beautiful. Inside and out.

This beautifully crafted boat includes many clever design features including circular vents with sliding covers between the forward part of the hardtop and the windshield, and an electronics compartment in the overhead with a hinged cover. The optional head includes an adjustable mirror to check yourself before stepping off, and a mahogany compartment top that stays open with a wooden cog in the hinge joint. The forward cabin has a roomy V-berth, and behind the helm are two identical inboard-facing settees. The best spot to feel the wing in your hair is the aft upholstered transom seat that spans the beam of this thoughtful yacht. Under the aft bench seat is a built-in cooler.

Her large cockpit will seat several crew members including friends, and friends of your children, or grandchildren. With 5'4" head-room in the cabin kids and adults have a generous amount of room. For taller people, it means just ducking a bit. There is plenty of additional stowage space under the seats.

The 255 holds ample fuel (80 gallons) for long trips, and behind the helm seat is a cabinet for an (optional) refrigerator or stowage.


Hidden treasures.

The 255 Sport Cruiser engine compartment hatch is powered to open with the flick of a switch which helps with the heavy lifting.

Under the hood is an automatic fire extinguisher, and aft of the engine compartment is a handcrafted teak swim platform

which includes a slide-out, drop-down boarding ladder on the starboard side. A grab rail on the stern deck gets swimmers safely aboard.


Power to spare.

With a 425-hp MerCruiser 496 HO and Bravo 3 drive, top speed is an exhilarating 56 mph and she cruises comfortably at 42 mph. A more proportionate, standard power package is the 300-hp MerCruiser 350. Cherubini Yachts can also power the boat with a reverse inboard diesel or a diesel with waterjet drive. Ultimately, Cherubini Yachts can build your 255 Sport Cruiser to your standards and beyond.
