Fire Lake is hull #57, cutter rigged, aft cockpit with pilot house Corbin 39.

She is powered by a Perkins 4.108 diesel engine. She is currently on the hard at Strong’s Yacht Center (since July 2020) in Mattituck, NY and awaiting bottom paint and some minor engine maintenance. She has had extensive blister repair in late summer 2020 and a survey (attached, see below) was conducted (on the hard) showing the hull is sound. All sails are present and in fair to good condition. There are also extra sails.

She needs some interior work which the owner Tony Nirmaier has started. He has begun removing some cabinets and shelves that need to be replaced.

He has replaced the main halyard, cutter halyard, and jib halyard; and the jub furler. There are also more new lines and sheets on board, ready to replace the old ones.

Fire Lake has 2 working bilge pumps and Tony has purchased 2 new as well. There are 3 new batteries and room for 1 more. Tony can provide a more detailed inventory for interested parties but for now suffice to say Tony has many extra parts for her.

Tony has $40,000 USD invested so far with another $5,000 USD planned for the paint, engine maintenance, fuel replacement and other general maintenance.

Tony’s asking price is $40,000 USD now or alternatively $45,000 USD after the planned work is completed. These prices are negotiable. Tony will consider all serious offers as he will most likely soon move to Montana for work, hence needing to sell.

The previous owner did not use her for 5 years and she sat in the water for that time. This is the reason for the blister repair and interior cabinet replacement.

Fire Lake is a mk1 aft cockpit complete with the taller double-spreader mast & bowsprit. Note that the forestay is currently rigged to the bow rather than bowsprit.
