the spirit of the CORSAIR
The Corsair Experience
She is as lovely and stout as she is graceful.
A lovely winning sloop in the Master Mariners Classic Regattas.

Hull Type: Wood
Builder: Jensen Boatyard, Denmark

Corsair” has handsome lines, with sloped bow sections, cutaway forefoot, moderate beam and draft and nicely shaped stern. Below decks she has the V-berth in the forepeak area, main salon with settee seating on both sides, and galley and navigation areas aft. On deck, her cockpit, side decks, cabintop and foredeck are traditionally laid out and rigged for efficient sail handling and movement forward and aft.”
Corsair is a twenty-eight foot beamy sloop designed by Slabby Larsen and built at the famous JENSEN boatyard in Denmark in 1960. She was shipped over in a container to the US and landed in Oakland where she embarked on her life in the San Francisco Bay. Completely retrofitted in the 80's, she came to her recent owners hands as a yellow painted boat in 2012. Then began her transformation into a bright hull and many other upgrades. Extensive work by shipwright Bruce Tipton of Port Townsend, 2016. Recent yearly haul out 2017/2018, varnish and bottom job, new engine water pump installed and new battteries! She’s well maintained! She is a fine live-aboard actually with a spacious 9-6 beam.
As her Boatright said; "She's a big little boat."
Congratulations to her new owners!
Attention to detail
at its best.
