Trailering Your Corsair Trimaran

The total towing weight can vary considerably, depending on model and options, and can be determined exactly by using a weighbridge. Check that the vehicle is approved and equipped as recommended by its manufacturer for towing this weight, and the capacity of the towing hitch is suitable. While towing, watch for strong crosswinds. A Corsair trimaran is a relatively light boat for towing, but it still has considerable wind age. For easy, stable towing, the trailer should be balanced to have 5 to... Read More »

DASH MKII, 12 months on.

Hello Corsair, Last spring it was a special feeling to me when the first pictures of the new Corsair Dash 750 MKII were published, because I knew it would soon be MY boat. She was on her way to the “boot” exhibition in Dusseldorf, Germany. After the exhibition I would take her home to the Baltic in Northern Germany by trailer. Of course I had to see her right at her arrival in Germany, so I was there when she arrived at the exhibition ground. The pictures had shown much of the new details,... Read More »

Corsair Replacement Parts

Need to replace something on your Corsair? Save yourself time and call your Corsair Marine dealer who can provide you with any replacement part for all current Corsair trimarans. Winter is a good time to carefully inspect your boat for broken, aged, or damaged equipment. One area of neglect that we often see on customer’s boats is the running rigging. Halyards and sheets don’t last forever. Sheets and halyards become stiff with embedded salt and degraded by UV. Your Corsair will be much more... Read More »

It's time to prepare for next year’s sailing season.

Now that the sailing season is winding down or has wound down for most of us its time to think about boat maintenance. Help preserve your Corsair trimaran's gel coat by giving it a thorough waxing and buffing. This protects the gel coat from further deterioration (oxidization) and will pay dividends when eventually (perish the thought) its time to sell your boat. Also take the time to “winterize” your Corsair trimaran's motor--which at the very least means flushing out any residual salt water... Read More »

Multihull vs Monohull Advantages

What are the key differences between catamarans and trimarans? Here are the basics: Level Sailing The most noticeable thing about sailing a catamaran or trimaran vs a traditional monohull is the lack of heeling. Even when powered up, a cat or tri will rarely heel more than 5-10 degrees before it’s time to reef. Gone are the days of bracing yourself in the cockpit, and living your life underway at 20+ degrees of angle. It’s a much more relaxing and convenient way to sail. No question about that....
