You probably need one of these.

  The all-new Ram 1500 is tough. Tough enough to haul a horde of Vikings across the Icelandic tundra, towing a massive Viking ship, all while singing a fast-paced version of Queen’s “We Will Rock You. Perfect for hauling a Corsair 37 trimaran, a Corsair 970 trimaran, a Corsair 760 trimaran, but could be overkill for the Pulse 600, but still, we all need a viking or two. Corsair Trimarans - legendary power, performance and dependability. If you have any questions about Corsair trimarans contact... Read More »

Corsair Trimarans are built for the R2AK!

You may have already heard about this race, but if you haven't here's a short run down. This race isn't for everyone. It’s like the Iditarod, on a boat, with a chance of drowning …being run down by a freighter, or eaten by a grizzly bear. There are squalls, killer whales, tidal currents that run upwards of 20 miles an hour, and some of the most beautiful scenery on god’s green earth. R2AK is based on the hardest kind of simplicity: You, a boat, a starting gun $10,000  if you finish first, A set... Read More »

Multihulls should be treated like aircraft...

Multihulls should be treated like aircraft when it comes to loading. Corsair trimarans are light and responsive craft. Due to their narrow waterline they do not have an unlimited load carrying ability. Overloading can affect performance and handling, while excessive overloading can also affect safety margins. The ratio of the float buoyancy is relative to the total weight falling. A higher ratio is faster and safer. Always be conscious of weight and take care not to carry unnecessary items. Some...

Why would I ever consider a trimaran?

As a multihull man, in particular, one who loves and sails trimarans, many people ask me “Why would I ever consider a trimaran?” They often say:  1. Trimarans have a smaller accommodation Correct The internal accommodation is compensated by the living space outside. After all, when you go sailing you do not want to spend your time inside your cabin, do you? You want to enjoy the environment and atmosphere. Most often we sail the trimarans in warm waters and to get the most out of the time on... Read More »

The Pulse 600 saved my life...

Well, the new trimaran by Corsair saved my sailing life anyway... In short, I found myself without a fleet in my early 40's asking the question "what's next?".  I learned to sail at age 7.  I won my first national championship at 11, was a four-year letter at USMMA with a few national titles in hand by graduation in 1997.  After college, like many others, I continued to sail lasers and V15s though many of my fellow collegiate sailing competitors went into full-time Olympic campaigns.  ...

A slow story about a fast boat

Here's a good story we thought you might find interesting. First reported by Latitude 38 June 19, 2017— San Francisco Bay You may have noticed a handful of young Italian men sporting Team Maserati shirts in Point Richmond over the past few months.
