Corsair Sprint 750

The new Corsair Sprint 750 represents a high-octane evolution of the successful Corsair 24. Its length and overall profile are similar to the 24’s, but over 100 pounds have been trimmed from the hull and the cockpit has been lengthened at the expense of some interior volume in the cuddy cabin. The cabin has a small double bunk and a place to put an optional porta-potty, but accommodations space

The new Corsair Sprint 750 represents a high-octane evolution of the successful Corsair 24. Its length and overall profile are similar to the 24’s, but over 100 pounds have been trimmed from the hull and the cockpit has been lengthened at the expense of some interior volume in the cuddy cabin. The cabin has a small double bunk and a place to put an optional porta-potty, but accommodations space is secondary to the Sprinter’s drag-racing speed potential. This trimaran is part of a rare breed of boats that can be easily trailered (the outer hulls fold up to a street-legal 8 feet, 2 inches), easily rigged (the mast can be winched up with a gin pole), and then sailed at speeds over 20 knots. One-design and PHRF racers will surely be attracted to its performance potential, but the Sprint may also be changing the definition of a pocket cruiser.

Because many pocket cruisers can be tender and slow, they have very limited range. In contrast, the Sprint is stable, powerful, and (in the right conditions) capable of covering 50 miles in an afternoon. So you may not have standing headroom down below or a private owner’s cabin, but you’ll be going at least twice as fast and twice as far as most other trailersailers. Its retractable daggerboard and rudder make gunkholing possible—and then there’s that exhilarating speed. $49,350 (with sails, motor, and trailer, FOB Chula Vista, CA) Corsair Marine, 877-327-8874
