Same Family & new Baby. Seawind owns Corsair - or to be precise, Corsair Marine International builds Seawinds. But the Seawind company and management took over Corsair.

Dash on the way for an attempt to open up some new markets in the grey nomad sector! See how it goes.

I have never been close up to a late model trailer able tri only one ever was about 25 years ago built out of ply by my neighbour when living in Townsville and a seed was planted back then.
On our recent trip Nth the Corsair type boat was a fairly frequent topic during beach sundowners.Some of the main reasons for considering were the couples ,one of who was usually a sailor,generally liked the cruising but some partners hated the passages so trailering to proximity of destinations appealed.A trailer able boat opened up Australia to people who again did not want to spend weeks or months passaging.Far less financial commitment than a normal cruising boat and usually lots of performance.
As a grey nomad I reckon with the diversity of our waterways a sailboat with accommodation could take the place of a Caravan .

Grey Nomads are clogging up the highways and free camping sites with their caravans in Australia. Now the only place 'to get away from it all' is on the water
