Quick Look: Corsair Dash 750

Alvah Simon reviews this multihulled adventurer for the Cruising World 2010 Sailboat Show in our January 2010 issue

Corsair Spirit 750 in Oakland CABilly Black

With enhanced performance and improved livability, the 24-foot-long Dash 750 trimaran replaces the popular Corsair F-24 Mark II. It weighs less than 2,000 pounds and folds up to a street-legal width of 8 feet 2 inches, so this trailerable trimaran will appeal to the backwater gunkholer as well as the need-for-speed junkie.

Using a clever hinging system for the hulls, a convenient tabernacle for the mast, and a retractable bowsprit, the Dash 750 requires only a wrench and 30 minutes to rig. Load some weekend supplies into the twin-berth interior, complete with stove, sink, portable toilet, and 12-volt electricity supply, and head out for a relaxing weekend of beach camping, or rendezvous with kindred spirits for some blistering class racing. And blister it will, for the Dash 750 simply rips. Are you ready to match boat speed to wind speed, knot for knot, well up into the 20s?
Simply said, the Dash 750 is portable, affordable, fast, and fun.
