This cat is engineered without compromise where only the best materials and techniques are used. Vacuum bagged foam sandwich construction keep the weight down to 4.27 tonne that almost 1/2 the weight of other cruising cats and its unsinkable construction being foam core makes her very safe and no water or rot problems. The helm is always light and responsive. Even if a bar is rough you can usually surf right on through in conditions that would be dangerous to other craft. Well set up with 290L of refrigeration both electric and eutectic you will never be without a cold drink and great food. With 3 double cabins and a chefs galley with loads of bench space the coffee machine, induction cooktop, jug and microwave look right at home. Even the most novice sailer can take this cat to places you only see in travel shows and brochures. She is registered as an Australian ship so you can leave and return the shores of Australia. It has the best navigation equipment available that is intuitive and very easy to use and repeats throughout the boat on any i pad or I phone and the saloonTV so for long voyages day and night travel is a breeze. You can set watch zones around the boat so if anything comes within a radius of say 5nm an alarm sounds and with AIS you will always know where the big ships are. Autopilot linked to the navigation always gets you to the destination in a straight line regardless of tides seas or weather and can even steer to wind so no need to keep triming the sails constantly when the wind changes.
A multi zone Fusion stereo will keep you entertained with the best quality sound including a sub. It has 3 gas bottles and huge fresh water tanks and a salt water rinse in the large stainless sink and great range under power. Being on board is like a luxury apartment great timber work and storage everywhere. With 1188ah of Gel house batteries and 600w of solar power generating up to 23 amps per hour and 2 x 400W Air X generators power management is a breeze. Everything is monitored and with VSR and digital alternator management use as much power as you want its all fully automatic you don't ever have to think about it. The ride is very buoyant and comfortable in any sea conditions. All facilities galley, toilets and shower can be used underway due to the low healing angle so enjoying a meal and a drink is easy and they wont be faling off the table. The foam sandwich construction insulates the boat for cooler summer and warmer winters and condensation is eliminated. The corsair has excellent all round vision not just from the helm but also from the saloon and cabins so when underway or enjoying and anchorage you can always see right around the boat. Going round Australia or Pacific cruising this cat is for you. Although never used for charter it is built to 2C Survey ensuring an even stronger build than standard and could be used commercially. The attached video is from when I bought her and sailed it from Cairns to Newcastle but it looks very different now and over $40,000 in new equipment spent.
