The interior layout is functional and spacious. Berths include a large double forward, individual settees/bunk on each side of the main cabin area, and a double bunk in the aft-cabin. A fully enclosed head, with vanity and a galley with two burner stove and stainless steel sink, round out the main cabin area. Upholstered seat/bunk cushions are standard in a wide choice of vibrant colors. On deck, there's a huge amount of space, and this combined with low angles of heel while sailing makes the F-28 Center Cockpit one of the safest boats afloat for children. The fully enclosed center cockpit offers ease for short-handed sailing and increased safety on open ocean passages.

Roomy Interior

The Corsair 28 and Corsair 28R have roomy, functional interiors with all the necessary amenities for comfortable overnight cruising. There are sleeping accommodations for four, galley area with 2-burner stove, stainless steel sink, fresh water tank and pump, and a marine head with privacy curtain and a holding tank. Seat/bunk cushions are standard and are available in over 40 colors and patterns, or may be covered with customer-supplied fabrics as desired.

The new F-28 Center Cockpit is definitely in a class of it's own. This new versatile mid-range model joins an elite group spanning over 15 years, and including 1000 boats. Whether it's class racing or cruising to new exciting destinations, the " New " F-28 Center Cockpit can take you there in style and comfort.

Ready for Launch

Mast up and ready to launch, this is the standard Corsair 28 showing the rakish aluminum rotating rig. The "R" model sports a taller but lighter weight rotating carbon fiber mast of airfoil section. The mast is raised or lowered using the installed winch on the trailer. This is a straight forward operation that can be accomplished easily in a few minutes, even with only one person. Everything about the Corsair 28 is designed to get you on the water quickly. The carbon fiber mast of the Corsair 28R has the double advantage of being more efficient and powerful on the water and of less weight for easy handling on the trailer. What appears to be an aircraft's verticle stabilizer in this photo is actually the rudder, which pivots up 180-degrees for trailering. This and the fully retractable daggerboard also enable you to pull in close to shore and anchor in knee-deep water, or even put the Corsair 28 onto a sandy beach. The rugged dual axle galvanized steel trailer will provide many miles and years of trouble free trailering. Surge brakes, lights and spare wheel are provided. Full up gross towing weight, including boat, trailer and essential sailing gear, is only 4,400 pounds.

Sailing the new F-28 Center Cockpit is an incredibly pleasant and gratifying experience. Finger-tip touch on the balanced helm is all that's required to maintain a perfect control at any speed. F-28 Center Cockpit points high, tacks like a dinghy, and is responsive and nimble. The well-mannered F-28 Center Cockpit is even suitable for short-handed sailing for one or two people. The F-28 Center Cockpit is a great practical cruising boat for the family, perfect for the idyllic sail, with a visit to that secluded beach for lunch, and then safely back on the trailer before nightfall, all with minimum effort.

Corsair Marine kicked off 1997 by entering production with a brand new model in its line of folding trailerable trimarans. The Corsair 28 (shown here) and Corsair 28R are now the the mid-range mainstay of Corsair, which also produces the Corsair 24 Mk.II and several models of the Corsair 31 trimarans. The new Corsair 28 models have superceded the famous F-27, which enjoyed an 11-year production run at Corsair.

The Corsair 28, like all of its predecessors and current sisters, is an easily trailerable sport boat because of its light weight and low profile on the trailer. Here the mast has been raised and final preparations are being made to lauch the boat. As with other Corsair trimarans, the transition from trailering to sailing only takes about 30 minutes.
