We can't recommend Corbins enough. The Corbin 39 is a well made, heavily built, blue water cruiser designed and built by Marius Corbin in the 1980's. Alianna has travelled many miles with us and we have always felt very safe in her. She is strong and sturdy and easy to handle and will look after you in the worst of weather. We have heaps of living space inside, the pilot house is like a second living room, the companion way steps are not too steep and are easy to walk down facing forward with out turning around. The saloon is spacious and comfortable.  If you like to cook our galley area is great with plenty of room to prepare food and huge amounts of storage.  You wont be one of those cruisers complaining about a tiny galley.  We have huge anchor lockers and cockpit lockers. Check out our About Alianna or Boat Gear pages for more info and pictures. 

We are currently in St Lucia, (a beautiful sunny island in the Caribbean!) but within a few days will be enroute to St Martin.  Either contact us directly or via our agent Tony at The Little Ship Company

Large Aft cockpit with bimini and screen and plenty of lockers. The pilot house has an internal steering station and 2 sea berths - the pilot berth is a small double or large single, it could be curtained off but it is not a seperate cabin, we currently use it to store all our sails.  This bunk has lots of storage underneath. The settee acts as the second seaberth in the pilothouse with more lockers above and storage below. There is good access to engine and engine room with lots of room to move around. The chart table and switch boards are to port with comfy arm chain. Down two steps is the large galley area to port which has plenty of work space with cupboards above and below - it was refurbished in 2009. There are two double sinks with pressured fresh water and a seawater foot pump. A new (2009) Princess 3 burner stove and oven with window above for good ventilation. To starboard is an Adler Barbour top opening large fridge and freezer compartment with storage cupboards above - also makes great counter space. The spacious saloon with another sea berth/settee to starboard and cupboards above as well as behind cushions. There is a lovely teak dining table with drinks locker in its centre to port with more storage lockers and huge bookcase around curved settees.  You will not find a boat of this size with all this storage. Up one step the heads are to port and decked out nicely in teak. To starboard a double hanging locker. The main forward cabin is one very large bed in which you can sleep athwartships or fore and aft. Under the bed is more storage. Alianna has beautiful flush decks that can collect vasts amount of rainwater directly into the water tanks via a Y valve and make walking around decks a breeze.  Her new stack pack and jib sun protection trim are a "toast" coloured that compliment the green hull nicely. New antifouling 2013 and gold boot stripe.

  3. Hi, I have recently added Corbin 39's to my list of yachts to consider. Alianna seems ideal. Please contact me at my email -

    I'm in Australia - as such I apologise in advance that I may annoy you with questions over the internet, rather than being on site (which would be nice but not cost effective). Was Alianna one of the 15 completed production yachts?

    Thanks, Roger and Ainsley Reeder

  4. I see Alianna is a Guernsey Girl....good to see a lady from The Rock having fun in the sun. I'm stuck on The Rock at the moment looking for an Alianna next year. Still, hope she finds a good pair of hands to sail and enjoy her...if she's around in 2014..this Guernsey Girl will be after her! Best Lois

    1. Hi Lois,
      Thx for your msg. We hope Alianna will be sold by then. Good Luck with your boat hunt.
      All the best,
      Rosie and Sim
