my Carebbian 39ft photo's

Hi SGWilco, thanks! The DS I purchased in Holland from a member of the Citroen owners club. The car was in fine condition, and I continue a high standard with its services. In 16 year's of ownership it has never given any trouble. Only 1500 miles a year, great for launching boats with its 5 position' s ride height. It's on lpg and is still the goddess of the road over long distance. Kind regards David

I used to drive a DS after cricket matches when the owner had too many sherberts. It was like driving on air. That Carribean paintwork looks like an old Hearts Blue with the Red flashing? A Major methinks with bow alterations, never seen that before.

 

cheers Iain.

Hi Lian,

three of these boats were built and delivered from the factory new in this format. A special order, by an Irish boat hire company, making my boat very rare indeed. the Major to my mind was 43ft, mine is 39ft. As you can see from my photos their is no seating in the bow, the middle window slides down and their are step's inside, also my saloon is much bigger than a standard Carebbian...but outside the bow is shorter/smaller.

Yes my DS has a magic carpet like ride.

Kind regards

David

Thanks Dan and Hi,

Re the site FB Winds, I had missed that photo, " love or hate" like the Beatles song its Love,Love,Love...that the recation from the locals.

When I was looking for a boat the standard Carebbian was what I had in mind, but this one came up, I thought at the time that the open hull was what I wanted. But you know what with the weather we have in Ireland......I am now charmed to have this one. Here are a few more photo's you will get the idea of just how big the saloon is. At present we are doing a makeover of this area, inc moving the steering and controls to the port side. 

kind regards

David

Thanks Dan,

nice photo, another member was speaking about the colour of my boat, white with the red stripe, this is not the original colour. When my boat left the factory it was that classic light blue(like opaque blue) from the deck up...and white on the hull.

kind regards David
