UK-Cherub Class

Get Your Heart Racing


Sgt Murphey (Nee Last Amber Dragon)

This boat was built by Bill Deeley and defined what was to come in terms of Cherub - and dinghy - construction from then on. Foam sandwich with seriously excellent structure, with a modern array of exotics in the layups, this boat really showed what was possible.

After several “missing” years she was spotted on eBay and returned to the fleet under the loving care of Laurence Trim, making brief appearances at both 2009 and 2010 nationals. She now sports a Daemon T-foil and an intermedaite set of Hyde square top sails. With the exception of an additional “providence unknown” ply (lead) crew deck at the rear she remains structurally original, bullet proof and most importantly when it blows can still deliver grin factor 10.
