1980 Cherubini Double-Headsail Ketch The S/V Floatingpoint is a 1980 John Cherubini designed and built 44' Double-Headsail Ketch.  Her sweeping sheer, low freeboard and ranked spars recalls the beauty of an era goneby.  She has many options and upgraded items onboard.  Floatingpoint has sailed off shore, done many blue water miles and crossed many oceans.  She can be sailed by two people comfortably, has a proven easy to handle ability and is at home on any sea condition.  Her cockpit, salon, galley and berth areas are nicely appointed with mahogany wood throughout.  She sleeps six comfortably in a forward center-line V-berth with filler, two comfortable settee berths, one pilot berth mid-ship on the starboard side and a just aft of midship quarter  berth on the port side. Floatingpoint can be a family cruiser, a long distance cruiser and a superb racing vessel. She is surprisingly close winded and is able to grab the light air of summer and beat to windward in strong winds. Her Scheel Keel enables her to climb to weather like a deep-keeled vessel, while she maintains all the cruising flexibility of a shoal draft boat. While Cherubini offers many different custom floor plans every finish detail above and below deck was meticulously completed by expert craftsmen. With a draft of only 4' 10" there are no problems getting into any harbor or anchorage.  She is a comfortable, gracious floating home.  Floatingpoint has a custom mahogany interior salon.  As you enter, the Galley is off to the Starboard side, with a center-line sink that has plenty of storage, a quarter berth is off to port side, with the navigational center just forward still to port.  The two facing settees are midship with dining table center-line, a pilot berth is starboard behind the settee.  Continuing forward the head is to starboard with storage drawers and cupboard. To the port side are two hanging lockers, one is in the salon passage and the other is in the master cabin. The V-berth, head, salon design are a Cherubini design, the galley/pantry, quarter berth are custom.

ALLIED PRINCESS 36 1979/80 About the Allied Princess: She is a robust character ketch that does not pretend to be anything other than a simple, comfortable cruising boat. In truth, it is a boat only a cruiser could love. Designed by Arthur Edmunds and first introduced in 1972, the Princess enjoyed a 10-year production run during which about 140 hulls were built, which likely makes it the most successful boat produced by Allied during its 22 years of existence (1962-84). Of all the boats Allied built–including the Luders 33, sailed by the famous boy-cruiser Robin Lee Graham; the Seawind 30, first fiberglass boat to circumnavigate; and the Princess is the one that still commands the most loyal following among modern cruising sailors. Though the Princess is undeniably a chunky craft, it is not unattractive. Its somewhat exaggerated sheer line leads up to a high bow, but blends nicely with its moderate overhangs and shoal-draft cutaway full keel. The boat’s performance under sail, though is smooth and steady. The Princess is a bit beamy for a vessel of its vintage, and this combined with the shallow keel and modestly sized ketch rig makes it slow to windward but when the seas kick-up and other light weight boats seek shelter the Princess comes into her own. A ketch-rigged Princess is very versitle and will sail best on a reach. The long keel tracks well, the ketch rig is easy to balance, and together with the non-reversing worm-gear steering found on most Princesses, makes it very easy to leave the helm unattended for long periods. The boat rarely buries its rail, and otherwise has a comfortable motion in a seaway. As with all boats built by Allied, construction is very strong and simple. The Princess hull is solid handlaid fiberglass–24-ounce woven roving and mat with a surface layer of cloth under the gelcoat–with thicker laminate at the turn of the bilge and down low around the keel. The ballast is lead, glassed over and encapsulated within the keel. The deck is balsa-cored. All bulkheads are tabbed directly to the hull. The rudder stock, impressively, is bronze. For coastal or offshore cruising the Princess is certainly one that deserves a look, she will take you anywhere you want to go in comfort and safety. It will serve admirably, too, as a coastal cruiser in any deep-water locale, as long as you aren’t too worried about getting places in a hurry. With its stout construction and easy motion it is also a good candidate for bluewater cruising. I am the third owner of the Princess, owner #1 was a doctor whom kept the boat in Va. On the hard 6mos out of the year, owner #2 bought the boat in 98 and cruised til 2000 when I purchase the boat and have had her since doing most of the up-grades.
