Re: Schionning Cats

Depends on who builds them for sure as if you had Noosa or Stallion build it would be a world class boat, but almost as much as a Catana. It will be faster than the Catana as well. I have Met Jeff...

Re: Your favorite multi-hull from 32-41ft

Corsair 37' Fast fun sailing with 50cm draft. Put a bimini on it and you got yourself a nice ride. The way sailing should be. Simple.

Re: Anyone cruising a Corsair F37?

Yup Sounds about right. Wanted to take some video in the choppy stuff but it was full on. Like Driving around hairpin turns in a Porsche then trying to fiddle with a camera. Next time my friend will...

Re: Anyone cruising a Corsair F37?

Hmmm the other side of the boat was under, I was getting pretty nervous. This was pushing it for sure. Unless you are racing or a speed junkie and can afford some things to break, I wouldn't want to...

Re: Anyone cruising a Corsair F37?

My Corsair 37 will be arriving the end of June so can tell you about it after then. I talked to previous owners and they were very happy with them. The boat comes with a 5 year structural warranty...

Re: 35-40 liveaboard tri, is it possible???

Go for the Searunner. Also think you could sell it for close to what you paid for it several years later.

Re: 35-40 liveaboard tri, is it possible???

I am receiving my Corsair 37' in 2 weeks and know of a couple people living off them. Perfect for 2 as a live a board. The Searunners much cheaper due to age and usually homebuilt, but have more room...

Re: I'm too old not to buy my last boat first.

Couldn't agree more. I am surprised that I don't hear more people buying boats in this area and using them as a second home while cruising then fly back home to Europe or North America. A lot more to...

Re: Trimaran for a Single Hander... why not?

Tris are not cheaper than cats. They are two totally different boats, and a Corsair 37 is $300,000 then extras add up to $50,000 more. Used maybe $200,000. Those Searunners look like good value often...

Re: Trimaran for a Single Hander... why not?

I decided on a Tri after owning a new 46' catamaran with all the bells and whistles. Realized I like the simplicity of sailing and love what a tri has to offer. I kind of feel like the guy from...

Re: Who is Toyota, Lexus, Mercedes, Ferrari Equivalents?

Talked with a couple owners and they are very happy with the Corsair 37. Averaging 11knots an hour on long trips and hitting well over 20 knots. Sleeps 7. Big enough for 3-4 people to comfortably...

Re: Portable Generator Air Conditioner Setup.

Nice one! That whole setup for about $600! Even if it lasted just a season it would be great. Plus could pull it from the boat when needed. Does it drain into the cockpit? WOnder if 5000 btu would...

LEXUS already does this. Also has a sensor with night vision that can view people at night before you do and alert you. Also a sensor that monitors your eyes to make sure that you don't fall asleep...
