Corsair Marine is the world’s leading trimaran brand, having launched over 3,000 boats in its 30-year history. Recognized for innovation in design and quality of build, Corsair Marine trimarans deliver effortless speed and acceleration while offering surprising comfort on larger models, ensuring racers, offshore sailors, and family cruisers alike can access the excitement of trimaran ownership.
Corsair Marine is thrilled to announce the successful launch of the first Corsair 880 folding trimaran. This new from-the-ground-up model carries a huge array of advancements in design, technology, and craftsmanship, while also marking a major milestone for the Corsair Marine company – which is steeped in the history of building trimarans of this size. Corsair became the world’s most prolific builder of trimarans, partly on the back of the huge success of these 28-ft models. The size now delivers incredibly fast, stable sailing to families on a budget, but the combination of being easily trailerable, and with serious interior accommodation makes the boat unique. The new Corsair 880, at just shy of 29 ft actually delivers a completely new aft cabin, a beamier more spacious saloon, and a forward cabin that comfortably sleeps 2. With the saloon table lowered to its bed position, the boat sleeps 5. This new 29-footer has radically different aesthetics in both the exterior design, and interior – the interior representing a great leap forward in comfort in a truly trailerable trimaran, and the exterior setting a new style for Corsair. New naval architecture, combined with Corsairs trademark advanced construction techniques were crucial to making the new boat safer, easier to sail, and more comfortable than any predecessors.
The Corsair 880 will make her European debut at the Grand Pavois Boat Show (La Rochelle) at the end of September, and make her American debut at the U.S. Sailboat Show (Annapolis) in October.
