inside steering station and nav station. Forward is a very nice large galley stretching the entire width of the boat. Centerline sinks;
refrigeration and counter space to starboard; oven, stove and microwave to port. This is one roomy galley with enough storage and
space to please any sea-going chef. Forward to starboard is the head with shower and the forward cabin with offset double berth to
starboard. Aft of the inside steering station on the starboard side is the walkthrough with single berth “crew quarters” and storage.

very clean, very yachty.

I purchased Sequel a 1986 Corbin 39 center cockpit, cutter/ketch-rigged sailboat with inside steering/nav station from the original
owner in April of 2003. I wanted a boat that could circumnavigate double handed in safety and comfort. If anything, she is “overbuilt”.
Her last survey was in 2003, prior to my purchase, I installed a new stainless steel water heater before shipping her from Stuart,
Florida to her new home on fresh-water Lake Lanier, Georgia  where I began her refit. Now named “Gisela” I replaced her sails and
added a Mack Pack mainsail cover/ lazy jack combination. My goal was to bring her up to 21st century standards and to this end I
installed a Nobeltec Insight Radar2 which overlays the GPS moving map display and automatically changes scale with zoom features.
I installed Adler Barbour reverse cycle AC/ heat in October of 2004 and that made it a new boat for me. All four cabins are
comfortable in any heat Georgia has thrown at us, and she is cozy in the winter as well. The refrigeration system was also replaced at
this time. I replaced the packing gland with a dripless gland when I hauled her in August of 09 to give her a new bottom and acrylic
paint job. I also installed Froli under mattress comfort systems in the master and crew quarters and solid foam cockpit cushions from
CCushions. There are 2 mounts on the stern rails for small outboards for the dinghy. You will not find a stronger built boat than the
Corbin 39.
