Named after the tropical Scarlet Ibis, CORO CORO, with her spacious decks, comfortable cockpit and exceptionally well ventilated, light airy interior, was conceived by her designer for her owner to cruise the tropics. Her rugged Royal Huisman construction and heavy weather capabilities, however, have proven her to be as capable in high latitude adventures as far north as St. Petersburg, Russia.
CORO CORO has been continually maintained in the no-compromise fashion which her indisputable pedigree warrants.

CORO CORO began her life with her build at the Royal Huisman Shipyard in Holland and cruised Scandinavia prior to heading to her first home in the lower Caribbean. Her present owner, only the second, has cruised the tropical waters from the eastern Caribbean to the far western Pacific and has spent many summers in New England with her. Accomplished naval architect, Henry Scheel, famous for his performance enhancing, draft saving keels, designed CORO CORO with sufficient displacement to provide a comfortable motion at sea offshore, along with a large sail plan to propel her while cruising in light-air. The Royal Huisman Shipyard complemented this design with their acclaimed high level of engineering with an emphasis on machinery space, accessibility and quiet, vibration-free service.
CORO CORO possesses every conceivable convenience for world cruising, living aboard or pleasurable day sailing. Spacious decks, a large cockpit and a salon comparable to yachts of much greater length are all part of CORO CORO’s cruising amenities. Upon entering from the cockpit companionway, one will notice the large, open spaces of the salon and galley. There is an abundance of unfiltered light from the many reinforced clear glass portholes and skylights, making this area of the yacht ideal for entertaining.
Accommodations are versatile for owner and guests, with three private cabins, all including ensuite head facilities. In addition, she has two pipe berths in the forepeak. Skylights again contribute airiness and ventilation to the sleeping cabins and heads.
Maneuverability and sail handling are aptly controlled from the cockpit, under sail with hydraulic furlers for both headsails and the mainsail or under power via a powerful Hundested variable-pitch propeller and retractable bow thruster. Sail handling is further enhanced with an array of hydraulically operated self-tailing winches.
Storage, refrigeration and machinery spaces are comparable to a much larger yacht. CORO CORO is a truly turn-key, top-pedigree yacht fully equipped in a condition ready to go anywhere in the world.
CORO CORO had a complete refit by her present owner when he purchased the boat in 1999. Since then, all her components and systems have been continually updated and replaced in the no-compromise fashion she deserves. Most notably:
Teak Decking Systems, installed by Hinckley Yacht Services

New custom refrigerator and freezer (2008)
Mast and boom Awlgripped (2011)

Teak decks sanded (2011)
Accommodations and Layout
CORO CORO’s cockpit features a well-positioned steering station aft with a varnished traditional binnacle and spoked wheel. Forward, CORO CORO’s cockpit is equipped with starboard- and port seating with a centerline teak table. This table has a built-in storage area, plus fold-up leaves for dining. Two large roll-down windows in the cockpit bulkhead, one opening to the salon and the other to the nav station, allow communication between these areas and the cockpit. They also significantly enhance the flow of air through the yacht in conjunction with her many opening ports, skylights and dorades.
Down five steps from the cockpit, there is a small refrigerator for drinks and a well-equipped navigation station with full-sized chart table to port. Opposite, to starboard, is a very large U-shaped settee around a beautiful teak table which expands for dining and seats 6-8 comfortably. A flat screen TV rises from behind the settee for viewing from this area. Opposite the settee, to port, is a large well-designed and -equipped galley. Opposite the forward end of the galley, to starboard, is the generator/machinery room.
Down two steps, forward from the raised salon/galley area, are two (starboard and port) cabins. The port cabin features a double berth with en suite vacuum flush head and stall shower. The starboard cabin has upper and lower berths with en suite vacuum flush head and stall shower. Skylights in these cabins and heads are equipped with recessed shades and screens.
Forward of these two cabins is a third cabin with upper double and lower single berths to starboard and, to port, a head with vacuum flush and shower, plus separate washer and dryer. There is separate deck access for this cabin so, when used by crew, they do not have to use the interior of the yacht for access. At the forward end of the third cabin, a watertight door leads to the forepeak, where an additional two pipe berths are located. These can serve as temporary crew quarters, freeing up the third cabin for guests when necessary. This area is air conditioned and heated.
Located forward, to port, as an integral part of the salon, the galley includes:
Four-burner gimballed propane stove with oven
GE microwave (on an electric lift for lowering into the countertop)
