The Corbin 39 was designed by Robert Dufour and built by Marius Corbin. The design features flush decks and ample freeboard. Production began in 1979 and continued until about 1989 with about two hundred hulls produced. The design was available with either aft or centre cockpits; and either ketch or cutter or sloop rigged. The Corbin 39 proved to be an extremely good strong, safe, adaptable long distance family cruising boat and many have circumnavigated. They can be found homeported and cruising worldwide. Some are even raced, primarily for pleasure !
