Comments:
Just purchased an Oceanfarer. Transported by truck from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario to Len's Cove Marina in Portland, Ontario. She sat covered outside for 3 seasons. The port 6 cylinder GM has water in the pan, hopefully a head gasket or cracked head rather than a cracked cylinder. Now the IN-X-S has been winterized. We are taking all of the exterior wood off and stripping and re-finishing this winter. The exterior hull will be wet sanded and waxed and polished this winter ready for spring launching.

Great to see so many people love Coronets, there are loads in Guernsey, 27's, 24's and 21's mainly. I'm on my second 27 ( first sold for financial reasons). Great boat for all sea conditions runs original 170/270 set-up looking to change to 2x diesels, any ideas?

Hi Simon. I have just found your site, very interesting & informative. we have had our cabin 24 for 12 years now, and we wouldn't part with it, except for a 27 at the right price.The only problem we have had is finding the right size props for 110/200 engines/legs at the moment we are useing 12x14, any ideas? and guess what there is a silver sun 230 with 145 volvo's & sx drives on our pontoon.the coronet 24 is a very good sea boat and will take any weather, but doesn't like a big following sea.

I am currently looking at getting a coronet 24 to do up. Are there any major problems I should look for, the one that I have been looking at has twin volvo-penta 200's petrol outdrives. it is missing a few bits which I have managed to find suppliers for at a reasonable price. Did the coronets suffer majorly from osmosis? Any information will be gratefully recieved. Cheers, Chris Bailey

Hi all, I'm the proud owner of a 21' Daycruiser, bought 3rd hand 5 years ago. She has two Volvo Penta petrol engines 120 HP each, and runs great notwithstanding her age. Very good behaviour in rough seas as well: I have to say that she'able to cope with much worse conditions than my usual crew (wife&daughter) can withstand! I've done an osmosis-prevention treatment (but don't really think she needed), and added an anchor electric winch on bow (no shallow waters here) and a removable rollbar + hardtop: these

She is in need of some freshing up but still looks great. Your site is one of the reasons we choose for this boat becouse you showed us what a great boat it is, we hope for lots of you and will send you some pictures when possible. greetings from holland.

My 2 brothers and I are nearing the complete restoration of this cracking boat (and I do mean complete - all wood stripped and revarnished, fibreglass has new gelcoat, engines and outdrives complete rebuilds, complete rewire to original spec....etc. etc.) She has twin straight 6 cylinder 172 horse power petrol engines with 280 outdrives (they're 1982 vintage) so should do about 35knots?? We've spent a bomb doing her up (we now believe that boat stands for "Bring On Another Thousand") BUT, she'll be tremen

Hi, I'm Susanna :), me and my family have just bought a Coronet 32 Deepsea, but here in Italy there are so few of them that nobody knows anything about them. As our boat needs a lot of work because the former owner has done only wrong changes, we should very grateful if some helpful soul would send us a copy of an original brochure and some technical information about engines, water tanks,engines' legs, trim and so on... Thanks from me and my family Susanna :)

I bought Sirocco VIII just over a year ago - shes undergoing a full refit, as all the woodwork (and some of the adjoining glasfibre) had been "painted" with some sort of thick brown gunk by a previous owner. Not a pretty sight - Stripping, sanding and varnishing has given wonderful results - the beauiful grained wood is now beginning to show. I have a full canopy for her, but the metal fittings and poles have long gone. Any ideas on making a replacement would be welcome. The next big job is the AQ130s and 2

We owned our Coronet while living in Alaska, it was shipped from Seattle, WA. Our first boating experience we didn't even know how to get her from the trailer to the berth. Boated in Prince William Sound in the late 1970's. Her name was Point's North and WE LOVED HER! Would love to find another one, except now maybe a 26' family. We sold the her because we moved to Seattle and lived aboard our new Krogen 42' with the family , dog and hamsters. We are excited to find this site and will be getting on touch

My husband always wanted to buy a Coronet. We first bought a 21 than after 2 summers we bought the 27 model. We are very pleased with her. We've been to Sicily twice. We first went to the east side ,than last summer we went to the west side of Sicily. The boats' performence was great.The 60 mile trip between Malta and Sicily took us about 1hr 45min.This year we plan to go again,but we're not sure if we go to Lipari or else to Egadi islands.Any similar experience please contact us on,twinky$$keyworld.net

I just found the site and am amazed at the following and interest in the boats. We bought "Rambling Rose" two years ago so that we could stay out for the weekend with our two girls. I don't know how old she is; is there anyway to find out from the serial #? We are giving her a new stern deck and bulkhead this winter as she was laid up for 7 years before we got her. Nice to see and hear from everyone. If anyone is in Bermuda please eMail back and we'll go for a ride.
