UK-Cherub Class

Get Your Heart Racing

Second Hand Boat List

The fleet is fairly fluid and active. During 2012 at least 14 boats changed ownership. In 2016 8 boats found new homes.

Not all the Cherubs that are available make it to the for sale list, if you are looking for a boat it is worth saying hello on the forum as well as viewing the adverts below. In addition to helping you find the correct, a post on the forum is also the easiest way of find a test sail at a club near you.

2693 "Subtle Knife"


Subtle Knife

Cardinal Sin

Built in 2007 by Aardvark Technologies, she based on a slug mould with racks. She is based at Chew Valley Lake, Bristol where she will be available to view and go for a sail. Subtle Knife is a fantastic choice for a first-time Cherub sailor as she has a high performance 2005-rules rig, but also a more manageable 1997-rules suite of sail as well. She has the benefit of a completely refurbished C-Tech mast featuring a new tip, base and spreader root upgrade, ie all the important bits! She has a stiff carbon hull, re-built main sail, excellent road trailer and trolley, top cover and under cover. She is ready to sail and will deliver race winning performance and a huge amount of fun.

2683 Pocket Rocket


Pocket Rocket (2683) is a very well sorted and fast 97 rules boat. An Appleby 1 design built in 2002 from carbon, kevlar and glass to the 97 rules. This is a fast and forgiving design and can keep up with some much newer boats. (See results from 2012 and 2017 Nationals) It comes with:

  • C-Tech Carbon Mast
  • Carbon Boom
  • Four Jibs, one new in 2017
  • Three spinnakers(one 97 rules, two larger)
  • Three Mainsails
  • T-foil rudder
  • High Aspect Ratio Carbon Centerboard
  • Road trailer and Launching trolley
  • Top Cover new in 2016

I sailed the boat for several years and have tweaked and tuned it into a solid fast boat. It has been well tested through mutlitple seasons of racing in all winds, for sale now after building a new boat.

0961 Suspense



It is in great condition for its age - 55 years old.

There are 6 sails including 2 spinnakers and everything you need to go racing including the spinnaker pole.

It comes with a trailer and cover. I should point out that the tyres on the trailer are perished. They hold air but have slow punctures which go down after about 2 weeks. The trailer uses mini wheels so you may want to bring replacement wheels to transport it home or bring your own trailer. You transport at your own risk.

This is a very rare boat and is an absolute pleasure to sail in. It is very fast and very exhilarating. It can be sailed single handed but is raced by 2 crew. I had the pleasure of competing in an open sea Cherub regatta at Weymouth in the past.
