Corsair 50: A Mini Review

Carol Vernon reviews this long range catamaran for the CW 2010 Sailboat Show

Corsair 50 mini 368

Performance has always been top priority at Corsair and with their new catamaran it still is, but at 50' they can now add the amenities for luxury cruising too. This Riechel Pugh design is tailored for long-range cruising with a three cabin / two head layout that leaves plenty of space for cruising gear and nice features like separate, fully enclosed showers. Unlike most catamaran of this size, there are two helm stations, located well outboard and aft, allowing great visibility for sail trim and navigation while still allowing the skipper to face towards guests in the cockpit.
