Brief historyThis is a variant of a Corbin 39 that was moulded in approx 1984 by a M Capers on east coast CANADA. She was owned by Charles De Ladurantaye for a while, he bought her from a M Pavot.

"Jaya" was moulded after the contractual dispute between Robert Dufour and Marius Corbin that took place approx 1982-1983/4 had been concluded: essentially their formal 'divorce' in design terms. It is suspected that this "Jaya" is a Robert Dufour evolution of the design. This is therefore the equivalent to the Corbin 39 mk2 which was the Marius Corbin evolution of the design. (Remember the Corbin yard fire was 1982).
