Corsair Announces New 29’ Folding Trimaran
Going back to where it all started – the Corsair F27, the sailboat hall of famer that once changed the sailing paradigm and revolutionised the sport worldwide. With its lightweight design and folding amas, this model allowed sailors to trailer a boat with reasonable living space across nations and even continents. The new 880 takes this concept to a whole new level! With tens of thousands of hours spent on this design the 880 has been developed for the modern sailor; adventurous and versatile. With full standing headroom, enclosed heads and the ability to sleep five she is destined to become the next ‘peoples boat’.
PERFORMANCE FOR EVERY SAILOR
The mission of the Corsair 880 is to provide sailors of all skill levels the opportunity to sail an effortlessly fast performance sailboat whilst being completely safe and comfortable. Relaxed cruising: Helming from the protection and comfort of the padded cockpit seats is made possible due to the low heel and stable sailing provided by high volume ama design and a huge unfolded beam. High speed racing: A 13.5m carbon rig, laminate sails offered on the Sport model, combined with the impressive low-rocker hull design deliver class leading performance.
“The 880 has the possibility to be a fantastic boat for the masses. We have identified that to succeed with this we must offer more than a great looking product, we must deliver a complete service, catering to the needs of each and every customer. The options offering on the 880 will be far more complete, allowing customers and dealers to build a boat catered to THEIR needs. As every customer has his/her own personality so shall each boat. We aim to make this process quite structured and painless in order to deliver a seamless and easy service to our customers.
This does not mean we will build custom boats – it does however mean we will think carefully about our customer’s personas and deliver standardised solutions to meet the broader market. We will have sail packages to suit all kinds of sailors as well as introducing new options such as AC, electronics, trailersand heated water to cater to a wider range of people.” Shane Grover – Corsair Marine, Sales & Marketing Manager
