Corsair 760 development updated Mon, 19 Sep 2016 10:34:27 +0000 READ MORE]]> The first Corsair 760 is in build now, and it’s time to reveal more about the features and performance of this new 24’ pocket rocket. 

When it comes to multihulls of this size, Corsair is virtually the only game in town.  The yard has built over 700 boats in this size, with the predecessor Dash 750 remarkable in its success over nearly a decade.  So to balance honouring the family history, while moving the design forward is no mean feat.  Design talent was brought in from France, Germany, and Australia to meet the challenge.  Here are the design highlights of the resulting boat:

  • Increased performance: 15% increase in righting moment and a 2.5 Degree lower heel at comparable wind speeds, contributing to making this boat faster and easier to handle
  • Full gelcoat headliner in a matte finish – making this boat brighter, more spacious feeling, but softer in its cabin atmosphere, while also being easier to maintain.
  • Upgraded Galley – now more usable, and modern, while being very easy to clean.
  • New Fabrics – the look of this interior considers buyers from all over the world including Europe. The new interior is full of gentle aesthetics reflecting a high-quality finish.

The visual effect of all of these changes to the exterior is stunning. The new boat has a trendsetting look. In contrast to the cool, sporty intent of the exterior, the interior invites a clean, comfortable escape:


Production of the new Corsair 760 has begun, with boats already on order for display boat shows across the globe.  We will update you on where and when to find her as soon as dates are set.

Pulse 600 wins SAIL’s Best Boat Wed, 18 Nov 2015 10:29:04 +0000 Congratulations to our new Pulse 600 owners! Here’s a review from SAIL.

It was heartening to see a whole crop of new daysailers at this year’s fall shows, including boats with one, two or three hulls. But in the end the judges decided the real standout in the group was the Corsair Pulse 600.

The Pulse 600 is a 20ft folding trimaran from the company that pioneered the genre. This new model has the same well-engineered structure for folding the amas as the original Corsair, as well as a ginpole and tackle to raise the mast. In 20 minutes, one person can get the boat from folded on the trailer to sailing across the water. The boat is also stable enough to be left afloat folded up, which many owners do in between sailing sessions to make getting underway that much easier.

Then there’s the boat’s performance. In moderate winds, the Pulse 600 is slippery and a joy to knock around in. In strong winds, the boat will be a veritable adrenaline generator, with speed to burn. Both a standard jib and an asymmetric chute are rigged on roller furlers.

Aft, there’s a genuine cockpit, so you don’t have to sprawl out on the trampolines (unless you want to). There’s also a nive little cuddy where you can toss your cooler and other miscellaneous gear, or perhaps let one of the kids take a nap if they happen to run out of gas during a long day on the water.

The amas have rather full sections to prevent burying the bows when the boat is driven hard in a strong wind. While this may reduce the ultimate speed a bit from that of a pure racing design, daysailing crews will appreciate the reduction in drama.

Corsair is cranking out the boats from its factory in Vietnam at a good rate and has started promoting a one-design class for racing. The Pulse 600’s combination of performance, handling, simplicity and trailerability should appeal to those who want fast, fun sailing without a lot of effort.
