Special one this! - Hello, My name is Marie and I am the daughter of Ole Botved, who you might know, was the founder and the spirit of Botved Boats/Coronet. It truly feels special to see that these boats still have a following and are for some a nearly collection item. I spend my first 7 years of my childhood on his boats and have great memories from it. My father was a remarkable man and a visionary. Back in the 60's, Coronet defied trends and keeps for decades a modern look and appeal to boat lovers. I just wanted to let you know that your web site brought up many memories and warmed my heart. Best Regards, Marie [email withheld]

02Jul2002 - Hi Simon, many thanks for your helpful advice.  If I understood it correctly from the seller this boat had been fitted with the 2 diesel-engines right from the shelve when originally purchased.  The engines are  2  VOLVO PENTA AQDA 40 .  Could you pls. put my 2 e-mails into your mail-box  so hopefully somebody having exactly the same spec. of engines in this boat might be able to give further advice re the potential problem with vibrations. By the way the seller has offered this boat as Coronet 32 Commander Wing.  Has there ever been a Commander with 32 foot???  When looking at your photo-galleries I rather think that the offered boat is a  32 OF Wing. Best regards Mathias. MSRMakler$$

01Jul2002- Hi, pleased having discovered this web-site.  I have been offered a CORONET  32  OCEANFARER  WING built in 79.  The boat seems to be in reasonable shape but can anybody give me advice of  experience made with this boat and what to examine specifically prior to purchase. (any problematic issues ????)     It is fitted with two VOLVO AQDAD diesel engines each providing some (?) 130 hp. Would be grateful for any assistance and advice. Best regards Mathias Hannover - Germany MSRMakler$$

10Jun2002 - Hello coronet owners, i found one model missing in your list.the cruiser from the early sixties. it´s a sailboat and we restored it in 2000/2001 .maybe you´ll like it.i hope you can open the files. best wishes bernd pfitzner cologne germany

31-01-2002 - Hello Simon, I have enjoyed your web site! My wife and I have a 1970 32 foot Oceanfarer. We live in the Thousand Islands section of the St.Lawrence seaway. A good friend of mine had ( his father) the only Coronet dealership in Ontario back in the seventies, and having grown up around many Coronet's I'm very familiar with most of the models. I have the original Oceanfarer brochure, as well as a navy neck tie with the Coronet "crown", the tie was given to my friend's father by Mr.Botved himself, along with a scale model of the Oceanfarer, about 3 feet long. Anyway, the Oceanfarer is a beautiful boat, our's has just been restored to brochure condition, all original items, nothing has been altered. I've also just had new engines and outdrives installed, twin 190 hp volvo penta gas engines and sx outdrives. She should be good for another 30 years! There aren't many Coronet's around any more, although there seems to be a few in this area. People don't sell them, they hang on to them forever...hmm..I wonder why ? Anyway, you've done a great job with the web site, enjoy your boat ! Steve Moore. smoore130$$

31-01-2002 - We have a 1976 Center cockpit with a Perkins diesel motor. We love this boat as it accommodates 6 with 2 heads etc. My husband has quite severe arthritis and we are thinking we had better sell. We are in Prince Edward Island, Canada and regretfully have placed Sea Dog on the market, Kathy Kennedy  kathyk$$

29-01-2002 - Just purchased a coronet 24 family/fly Requires restoration, would appreciate any help with spec/information on model, in particular structural information or photographs. signed your guest book great site for Coronet Owners chat room ??? rod asutae$$

24-01-2002 - What's to say about the coronet. Like you say you do not appreciate the boat until you own one. I have had the immense pleasure of restoring one Coronet 21 cabin cruiser, which I also converted to diesel, diesel being the preferred fuel for inland waterways like Loch Lomond where I have my boat. I have Just taken on a new project of restoration. She is a Coronet 24 Family Fly, well! I think that's what she is, I'm not 100% sure But I'm sure she is a coronet, and I'm looking forward to it. Perhaps you could help me out here, in your terrific model range on your web-site unfortunately the picture of the 24 family fly is unobtainable do you still have access to that picture, if so could you e/mail me a copy. It would be greatly appreciated. I would also welcome any information you can send me. Rod. asutae$$

20-01-2002 - Hi' Simon Sorry it has taken so long to respond, But I also have been looking for information on Coronets for I have a 31 ft aft cabin. Have been in contact with the Swedish boat club at if you still have your coronet, try this site. I have asked for information, and waiting to hear back. Regards Stan Cobourn stan.cobourn$$

19-01-2002 - Hello Simon I am the very proud owner of a 1976 family 24. I`m in the middle of an interior refit but having never attempted anything like this before I`m finding it all a bit daunting. Luckily she is parked on the driveway so I can tinker whenever the mood takes me but I think its going to take longer than the 12 months that I promised my Wife!!! The boat is fitted with the standard twin volvo 130/270 and I anticipate quite high running costs. I`ve been considering fitting diesels. Do you have any suggestions? Or even better could you put me in contact with anyone who has successfully completed a conversion. I should imagine the cost would immediately transfer to the value of the boat but is it feasible? Thanks for keeping such a fine web site going. I can see from the "hits" that there must be a fair number of Coronet fans out there who, like me, are very grateful for the time and effort you have put in. I`ll send you an update on the refit when I can and some pic`s for the album. Paul tucker.mail$$

14-01-2002 - Hi everyone...we have an old (maybe 1970) OceanFarer 30 called Rambling Rose. I would be interested to know if there is anyway of finding the exact age via the serial number. Also I see from your great page that there is a picture of some spare parts, so I went to the site, got it in English but still could not find the parts section!!! I am particularly interested in the running lights embedded in the teak handles...mine are completely shot!!! We love out boat and are currently trying to restore it to former glory...we bought it from someone who left it in a yard for 7 years...criminal. She's got new engines (twin Volvo 203 in-line fuel injected), swimming platform, trim tabs, electrics etc. The current project is new bulk head and stern deck, new fuel tanks and add a generator. I will send a picture how she looks when we are done. If anyone is in Bermuda later this year and wants to go for a spin send me an EMail. Glad to see these boat are still so popular...

17-12-2001 - Hi I'm John from Malta and I'm a Coronet 27 owner. I bought my Coronet 4 years ago and each year I try to refurbish her where necessary.2 years ago I altered the cockpit canopy from a soft top to a hard one made of fibreglass fixed on top of the windscreen extending to just behind the drivers' seat. From there I attached a new canopy which extends sideways and backwards down to the wooden hand rails. I would like to change the windscreen of my seafarer 27 because the aluminium corroded. Besides I would like to build a radar arch in stainless steel or aluminium. Any idea if I will be able to find a replacement made from the factory, or would I have to make one myself. I would also appreciate an idea of a suitable radar arch model which could be fixed to my model. Thank you John Borg twinky$$

14-12-2001 - Good afternoon, I have a 1970 32 foot Oceanfarer and I would like to know if you know anything about the optional cockpit folding table ? I have the original brochure for the boat and I would like to make one myself so I was wondering if you might know anything about it's dimensions. I'd really appreciate hearing from you. Thank's for your time ! Steve Moore mailto:smoore130$$

02-12-2001 - Hello, I am found of this boat and I want to buy her. The length is 6m60 or 22' but the line looks like a seafarer 27'. Is it possible that there are 22' explorer models with look of the seafarer? I am looking for details about the engine: the Z-drive is still there but no motor. Somebody told me is was a 165Hp Volvo. Are there motors from today who can be used on the z-drive? Thanks Michel Michel. Monbaliu$$

21-11-2001 - Hi Simon We have a 24ft daycruiser/weekender and would like to know if there are any identifying marks anywhere that we could tell the exact age of her. She has been repowered with a 150 Yamaha outboard motor. Many Thanks Warren King gonepotty$$

24-10-2001 -I was looking at a 31 ft aft cabin in Ontario Canada. It has sat on a trailer for the last 6 years, outside ,half covered with a tarp . Some of the wood trim inside needs replacement (rot). I wonder if some of the wood hull joices/stringers encapsulate in the fiberglass are able or likely to rot on these boats in general. I have dealt with rot on other small fiberglass boats. it is a single diesel inboard. Low hours. They run the engine yearly to keep it fresh. The owner said the bottom of the hull in the engine area is 1.5 inches thick. these boats are not as stylish as modern boats (only my view). I would assume it would be easy enough to update with remodeling inside. I also like the Chris Craft boats of similar size. However this boat seems tougher. I am a safety nut. I don't like flimsy things. I would like a boat that will not tip over in bad weather if caught out in a storm in the Great Lakes. If not you can you lead me to anyone with a good knowledge of hull integrity etc. i have drooled over this boat for 5 years because of its tough hull ( per owners claims) and diesel (low fire hazard) and low fuel consumption. Needs some work and clean up and fresher interior. any wisdom? age 42 wife 3 young kids. I am a financial planner in Toronto. I like used toys and repair projects. You name it, I will learn a new skill to fix something if i don't know how to already (electronics/computers excluded). Thank you very much Thomas Alder phone # 519-927-3338 plan4u$$

15-10-2001 - hello, my name is jim. I just found your web site and was wondering if you could please help me find some information. I recently, acquired a 1960,s? 22 foot explorer with a single volvo 4 cylinder. I'm trying to locate some good pictures or literature showing how everthing is hooked up. You see, the entire interior is removed, the previous owner removed every piece of woodwork and refinished it. I have every piece, but since he is now deceased, I have no reference as to how things go back together and should look. Any help you could offer would be greatly appreciated, and i'll say thank you in advance. jim JRGrieshop$$

08-10-2001 - We have bought and started restoration on 1962,maybe 64 23 foot botved coronet. Any info on engine and out drive would be great, rebuilt the keel and complete hull. Tested and she does still floats. XRuthieM$$

06-10-2001 - Good afternoon, was wondering if you know of any other 32 foot Oceanfarer owners in the 1,000 Islands area of the St. Lawrence River here in Ontario, Canada ? Also, I've tried with NO luck to join the Coronet Sweden Yacht Club...hmm, I've got an original Coronet neck tie that I would like to trade for say...a Coronet patch/crest. My friend had the Ontario dealership for Botved Boats back in the seventies, at Port Colborne, on Lake Erie...and I believe he has a scale model of the 32 foot Oceanfarer that was a gift from Mr. Botved for selling so many of his boats. Hope to hear from you. Steve Moore. smoore130$$

02-10-2001 - Hello! I'm owner of a 1980 coronet 24 cabin. I would like to know who kind of motor i can install because my 2 volvo aq 130 are finished. May i install 2 x 200? And 2 diesel? Ottica Più otticap$$

19-09-2001 - Hi my name is Domenico I'm from Rome (Italy) and I've been a proud owner of Coronet 21 that I totally restructured ten years ago. I loved that boat but I had to sell it two years later. Some days ago walking around in a "parking area" for old boats I found an old and abandoned Coronet 32 Oceanfarer. Engines had been removed, external woods were totally ruined and guide place destroyed. However that boat seemed to me the best I had ever seen and, only for this reason, I thought that it could be still considered recoverable. I asked some information about the boat to a man working there and he told me that it was not sailing since 10 years. I obtained the telephone number of the owner and I contacted him. The boat is on sale. The price is not so convenient. So I'm now deciding about the possibility of spending every weekend of my next two years working on the boat. What kind of suggestion can you give me? Could you send me all internal/external pictures of Coronet 32 that you have? Do you know if original parts of the boat can be still found somewhere? Thank you for your attention. Domenico D.Borzomati$$

23-08-2001 - My wife and I own a lovely 1969 Seafarer. We found it resting badly on blocks in a boatyard in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. It had been there since the original owner had passed away nine years before. We purchased this boat four years ago, and after three years and considerable expense, she is now resting in her berth at Safe Harbor Marina, on Lake Erie, North East, Pennsylvania. Originally the power was Volvo diesel thru 250D lowers, but in 1985 the original owner opted to convert to 165A Petrol units. Gary Bemiss maxsdad44$$

26-06-2001 - I'm very happy to know that there is another proud lover of coronet's boat ( sorry for my English ). I'm chatting from Italy and my father is an happy owner of CORONET 24 CABIN dated ( i think ) 1970. . Greetings. Alex Alessandro Tondelli atondelli$$

26-06-2001 - Recently happy owner of a Coronet 24 born en 1969, equipped with two gasoline engines Volvo 2 * 130 CV, I search some documentation regarding this boat, the engines, and so on. Can you help me in this way? Congratulations for your internet server. Friendly, Jacques Plaçais jacques.placais$$

22-06-2001 - I have noticed that you haven't got a picture of a coronet 21 cabin. so here is one [his picture] although it is from before we started putting the boat back in shape. Ill will sent one of the boat as it looks today at a later time. Henrik H. Nielsen Uummannaq, Greenland. henriklone$$

07-06-2001 - I have looking Your websites and it is very good to know that there are lot of people who are intrested in Coronet boats. I have one of these classical wonderfull boats, she is Coronet 21 Cabin. I think that this Coronet is quite rare, because I haven't seen any picture of it in internet and also in any magazines which are available in Finland. My Coronet is 21 Cabin year modal is 1966 and she is powered by Mercruiser 215 hp with gasoline and fresh cooling water system. She's appearance is little modified by "targa curve" and few lines of tape. If you want to have picture of your collection or know something more of that Coronet, please contact to: silvennoinen$$

05-06-2001 - I am owner of a rather unusual daycruiser the 22 DC (also named 230 Silver Sun when it appeared during mid eighties in all white). It is good fun to hear that you enjoy your boat. In Sweden the Coronets are popular and well known. In any pleasure boat harbour you will find at least one. The carry a good reputation of high quality, good performance and unrivalled style. In my opinion some models are better than others. I guess you should be happy that you got V8s rather than the far too frequent Volvo 170 hp. They are known for being thirsty and they have got at multi carburettor arrangement that is less than optimal. Best boating regards Pontus Wallin Stocksund, Sweden pontus.wallin$$

04-06-2001 - Hi Simon. My name is Brad Colllins and my boat is a deepsea called "Jalakai'.

12-04-2001 - Hi, found your home-page when I was out searching for interesting coronet stuff. My name is Johan Ottosson from Gothenburg Sweden. Now I own my third coronet. It's a the same as yours a -73 Coronet 32 oceanfarer. Before I have had a 21 dc and a 26 family. My still have it's original engines Volvo B30 straight six cylinder engines, well not original renovated in -95 and freshwater cooled. Maybe little to small engines but as long as they not breaks I will keep them. I have a backup engine back home in the garage for spare parts. Bought that one for about 300 £. I'm part of the Swedish Coronet Yacht Club. Right now we are planning for the meeting we shall have on the Swedish west coast this summer. The record for one meeting is 20 Coronets. I have learned to know a lot of Coronet owners from the club. We usually go together during the weekends with our Coronets. It's a quite spectacular sight when we are coming with our Coronets. We are about five boats normally going together all 32 of. This spring I'm equipping my Coronet with windlass and bow propeller. From now on it shall be much easier in the harbours.

20-11-2000 - Simon Apologies but I meant to ask you about petrol consumption - I note your boat has twin V8's which I would immagine drink the stuff even at low speed. The boat I am looking at has twin Volvo 170hp straight six's which I am told by the broker will burn about a gallon per hour per engine at river cruising speed - 4 knots. Do you have a view on this?

20-11-2000 - Simon Great to find your web site and understand a little more about this rare boat. I am in the throws of purchasing a 1972 Ocean Farer but having no experience of these vessels, really don't know what I'm looking at? I've attached details below and would appreciate any guidance you can offer. We are having it surveyed both structurally and safety scheme and expect to have to outlay a further £5k to bring it up to river/sea cruising spec but I am told the asking price reflects this???? - £20k as she stands. Is this a reasonable price - she looks immaculate and has been really well maintained but to be honest, with the repairs, is she worth £25k??? Kind regards Phil phil.murden$$

10-11-2000 - My husband and I recently acquired a 1974 24' Coronet Cabin Cruiser.

It was beautifully redone in ~1990 and the Volvo inboard/outboard was replaced with an OMC. This work was done by Harbor Vue Marina (Stan Ferguson) in Little Current, Mantoulin Island, Ontario.

30-03-2000 - Dear Simon, Delighted that you have updated your site. Our 24-foot twin-Volvo powered Coronet, the Odyssey, is still at Marina Île Perrot and is still for sale. Went to the boat show this winter in Montreal and placed it with a dealer in Lachine named Ken Wagner. He estimates it could sell for under $20,000 Cdn. Mind you we have spent $20,000 in restoring this magnificent boat. Wonder if the folks in this area have an idea of the value of this finely crafted cruiser in comparison with other makes of boat in the same size range. Any suggestions on how we can get a true appraisal of its value and how we can best bring it to the attention of knowledgeable boat lovers? Wish we didn't have to part with it, but my husband's health is too fragile for him to don his captains' hat. Cheers, Dorothy Hogan chaine$$

27-03-2000 - This is my 1976 Coronet 32 with twin Volvo fours on shafts. I don't know the model name of this specific cruiser. Maybe you can help me. Any info on available printed material would be gratefully received. It has an aft cabin and beautiful polished mahogany interior. I get about 6.5 gallons per hour at 13 knots, with a top speed of about 20 knots.
Looking forward to further communication Bill Barrow [I've lost Bill's email]

It is now berthed at the Marina Île Perrot just west of Montreal. Any ideas on how we can best proceed? Need to know the value of the boat to set a realistic price.
