If your looking for a Corsair as the ultimate cruiser........this is your boat. YES, an inboard diesel. The latest radar and nav gear. Full cockpit enclosure. Hefty road trailer. You name it. This boat has it.
This 31 is the aft-cabin model has a private sleeping area away from the main cabin, which also proves to be an ideal and safe place for small children to play under easy supervision; as well, additional bunks are in the main cabin. The main cabin is large and features an interior configuration that easily converts from day to night requirements as well. A table and extra bunk slide completely out of the way when not in use. The C-31 has ample accommodations for four, and include six-foot, two-inch standing headroom, a large double V-berth forward, an enclosed head, and a galley area with a two-burner stove, sink, and a large molded countertop. Large storage compartments in each float augment the plentiful stowage in the cabins. The cockpit comfortably seats four adults, though this is seldom necessary as the broad decks and nets give the crew many other comfortable places to spread out and relax. The forward hull shape effectively deflects spray away from the cockpit. Control lines for halyards and sheets, and the controls for the daggerboard, rudder, and outboard motor can all be operated from the cockpit. A transom swim step provides easy access on and off the boat. The fractional rig is very efficient and easy to handle in all conditions The new (2008) Elliott/ Pattison fully battened mainsail has jiffy reefing. The new Elliott/ Pattison jib is roller furling with a Harken Furling system. The new Elliott/ Pattison Screecher with a Harken furler is flown from the retractable carbon bowsprit. The Screecher really enhances off-wind performance. A daggerboard provides efficient windward performance; this, along with the kickup rudder, enables the 31 to moor in very shallow water or even be beached. WARNING: Sailing a Corsair 31 could cause you to have fun. Sailing the C-31 is very stimulating, if the effects last longer than 4 hours call me. ;-)
