The couple is selling this race-ready Corsair 31R bought a Catana from The Multihull Company almost two years ago and are shortly departing for points South. It has taken a long, long, long time for them to list their 31R. They just love it. They will miss the amazing acceleration, the exhilarating ride, and the many victories they have experienced aboard. Still, the South Pacific beckons so this beautiful and competitive aft-cockpit Corsair 31R can be yours. You may have seen it blow by on the Bay or on the way to the Farallones. It is extremely well-mannered, competitive, and very well-equipped. Check out the videos! I've left the Seller's comments in the descriptions below so that you can feel the love this trimaran has had. The enthusiasm bleeds right through. . . She needs a good home with good sailors. Might that be you?
Corsair 31R - Aft Cockpit Model
This Corsair 31R is an AWESOME sport cruiser that has won many Bay Area races and often exceeds 20 knots under sail. It accommodates up to five in comfort with standing headroom, galley and enclosed head. The 31R definitely has a bent towards racing performance, but it is easily handled by a couple - or even single-handed. It folds easily to a trailerable beam of 8' 2" which also makes it convenient to dock in standard marina slip. Take it to any cruising grounds or race and expect thrilling performance. The "R" version places less emphasis on interior cruising amenities which saves weight and boosts performance.
-Long cockpit with the shorter cabin. This is much better for racing as there is 16-18 inches more cockpit.
-High aspect daggerboard from Phil’s foils.
-Enclosed head with door. It’s to the right of companionway like on some F28’s.
-Good Doyle main which is surely useful for racing still, but not new or fantastic.
-New North Sails 3Di jib. 3Di is the best there is for a high pressure jib. The thing has been USED and it’s the exact same shape as a year ago when I got it. Legit.
-New Doyle asymmetrical spinnaker last year
-Screecher from 2011 used much less than other sails and is totally useful still. Sails wise, the only one I’d consider replacing if I was campaigning hard for a season win would be the main.
-ALL running rigging replaced with the best possible line. Nearly a billion dollars spend on line.
-New standing rigging from Colligo Marine complete with cheeky tangs and full setup. The most worthwhile improvement I made. Seriously, the boat behaved a lot better immediately. The Colligo stuff is great.
-Closed cell cockpit cushions
-Decent interior cushions.
-Rail mount BBQ.
-New B&G chartplotter.
-Raymarine wireless instruments including mast rotation sensor and additional solid state compass, the big Raymarine autopilot with autopilot remote.
-LED lights where possible.
-New smart trickle charger.
