Corsair C37 Review

The Corsair 37 Carbon Offshore Cruiser Racer is the most technologically advanced Corsair yet.

The boat is available in two versions – Corsair C37CR and Corsair C37RS (racing series). The 37CR is build from fibreglass while the 37RS is a full carbon fibre build.

Both feature shallow draft with retractable daggerboard and rudder for exploring, a carbon rotating wing mast and quality deck hardware.

An intelligently designed deck layout sees halyards, topping lift, reefing and outhaul controlled at the mast. All other control lines go to the cockpit for ease of sail handling and control.

The interior combines functionality with creature comforts. A spacious and functional galley has a two-burner hob, sink and ample cabinet and storage space while the comfortable curved U-shape setee offers seating for six around a FRP table.

Forward, the enclosed head features a moulded vanity with sink and shower attachment.

In the bow, a spacious V-berth sleeps two adults in comfort. The aft cabin includes a double berth while the dining area in the main cabin converts to an additional bunk.

  • Lightweight aluminum folding system
