The Cherubini designed Hunter 36 is a classic yacht with a beautiful "wine" glass shaped hull. She has a great layout for a cruising couple and a nice turn of speed for some club racing. Moon Shadow is a 3 owner boat with the current knowledgeable owners on board since 1986. Moon Shadow has been sailed primarily in the Chesapeake since then. She has been lovingly maintained all of these years. She is the best example of a Cherubini/Hunter 36 I have seen and is well worth seeing. Moon Shadow is a great boat.
I have been lucky enough to be near the water all my life. As a teenager, I learned to sail a Sunfish on the Chesapeake off Howell Point and joined the Sea Explorers where I was introduced to both racing and cruising. As an adult, I joined the USCG Auxiliary teaching sailing in Wilmington and Newark, Delaware. I have raced and cruised and made yacht deliveries up and down the east coast. My time on the water has always been very important to me. After college, a stint in the Air Force, a period of public service, bicycle racing and ownership of the Admore Bike Shop, I joined the marine industry in 1988. Initially, I sold Hunters, Catalinas, and Morgans before moving to Rock Hall and Gratitude Yachting Center in 1994 with my wife, Janet. I am now with S&J Yachts and have been selling yachts for over 26 years. Through these years of experiences, I can help you make the very best yacht selection - matching your plans and dreams to your new or new-to-you sailing or power yacht. I am looking forward to meeting and working with you.
