Corsair F28 R

The Corsair F28 R is the sporting version of the Corsair F28, model proposed by Corsair Marine to succeed to its first trimaran the Corsair F27. The dimensions and shapes are similar to those of her elder but the design and equipment were modernized. The Corsair F28 R reuses all the elements of the Corsair F28 but adopts a sportier rig with a 60cm – 2ft longer carbon mast and a 2sqm - 22sqft larger mainsail.

The Corsair F28 R is like the Corsair F28, available in 2 versions:
  • Center-Cockpit (CC) using the configuration of the Corsair F27 with a rear cabin
  • Aft Cockpit (AC), offering a large opened cockpit
