Year: 1984
Designers: Marion Corbin/Robert Dufour
Factory built and finish
Hull #153

The Corbin 39 was the result of an effort to design the ideal boat for serious blue-water cruising. More so than most sailboats, you will find the Corbin in the hands of people who have made extensive blue water passages or were at least planning on doing so, (as was the case of the current owners) until Grandchildren arrived. The Corbins overall length and cutter rig were selected based on the maximum boat that is rigged to easily singlehand. The interior of the Corbin is beautiful with teak throughout and well equipped to provide the kind of storage and functional living space that would be needed by a crew that may be away from a home port for years on end. Seaworthiness is high on the priority list as demonstrated by the boats robust construction, skeg hung rudder, an interior and exterior steering station, always within easy reach are handrails.

This Corbin has been extensively refitted for long term comfort, as demonstrated by installation of Air conditioning, Diesel Heater, Water Maker, Four burner stove & oven with broiler, microwave, TV with DVD player, Upgraded mattress in berth, large fridge and separate large freezer. 199 Corbin's were made with only 15 being factory finished and Swell Dish was one of the 15. Swell Dish is a unique one of a kind beautiful boat, that feels like home on the inside. Extra large flat deck which easily accommodates a couple of lounging chairs and a hammock. She has been loved by her current owners who spared no expense in making her not only a safe but also comfortable home. Swell Dish is ready to take you safely and most certainly comfortably wherever you want to go. This is a unique opportunity to own a spectacular one of a kind sailing vessel, you wont see another like this beauty.
