Design and Construction

The Cherub is a 'restricted' class as distinct from a 'one design' class. This feature allows amateur designers and builders flexibility in complying with maximum and minimum measurement restrictions and permits boats to be rigged and tuned to allow for a wide range of crew sizes.

Being a 'restricted' class also allows Cherub owners to choose their own gear from a wide range of suppliers of spars, sails, foils and fittings and to individually tailor they way that they set out their control systems.

On the pages below you will find information on recent trends in Cherub hull design, rigging and equipment.
