Corsair 24 Mk II

Designed by:

Corsair 24 MkII

Based on the Corsair F-24 Mk I, the very versatile Corsair 24 Mk II is both an effective one-design or PHRF racer and a neat pocket cruiser. Lightweight, with a highly developed rig, the 24 Mk II is capable of exhilerating performance with top speeds over 20 kts in suitable conditions. A rotating mast and square topped main give a high degree of aerodynaic efficiency that particularly enhances reaching performance. Rig options include a roller furling screecher, asymetric spinnker and a bowsprit from which to fly them. Easily handled, the boat can be raced, even in tough conditions, with a crew of three or even two.

With its innovative, yet very well proven folding system the 24 is easily trailerable. The cabin sleeps four, and spacious decks and nets give ample room to spread out on leasurely trips. Heads and other cruising amenities are optional.
