The Corsair Sprint 750 was lauded by reviewer Zuzana Prochazka for being a “fast, versatile, trailerable trimaran built for the perfect day of sailing.” Now, Corsair has upped the ante with the new 760. Available in both cruising and racing versions, this folding trimaran promises flexibility in both how you sail, and where you sail it. Join our European reviewer Dieter Loibner, who came across the new Corsair while touring the Dusseldorf boat show in Germany.
As with past versions of trimarans this size built by Corsair (only the Pulse 600, a 19’8” beach cat that also folds for trailering, is smaller), accommodations are rather minimal. But pay particular attention to the video at 0:50. The pop-top Loibner displays is quite an inventive way to create some headroom where there is none. Another inventive touch taking advantage of space where there is none is the cabin table. Rather than add one in the middle, Corsair attaches a table to the daggerboard trunk. The structure is already there and the space is already taken, so this is a smart way to reclaim some of it. And yes, the table is removable so you can open up some elbow room when you want to. Other highlights in the cabin include a compact galley (with a one-burner stove and a sink), a V-berth, and settees down each side which can convert into berths. While you wouldn’t have much (any) privacy, in a pinch four people could sleep aboard.
The Corsair 760 is 24’3” LOA, and has a 17’11” beam when fully deployed. In the folded position, beam drops to 8’2”. Displacement is a hair under 2,000 pounds, so even relatively small tow vehicles can handle the load. If you want a trailerable trimaran, the Corsair 760 looks like a hot option.
