1997 Corsair F-31 R for sale. A rare F-31 RS model with 2015 Corsair F-31 rotating aluminum wing mast. This boat was set up for the lightest possible weight for best performance, but still has cruising oriented options such as removable galley module , autopilot etc.

Basic Description

The F-31 aft cockpit model has an open and longer cockpit in place of the aft cabin, and the main cabin is also larger and features an interior configuration that easily converts from day to night requirements. Six-foot, two-inch standing headroom, a large double V-berth forward, a dedicated head area, and a removable galley module with sink and stove.  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 can seat four to six 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, and winches, halyards and sheets, and the controls for the daggerboard, rudder, and outboard motor can all be operated from the cockpit. The fractional rotating rig is very efficient and easy to handle. The fully battened mainsail has a roller furler boom. An asymmetrical spinnaker flown from the foldable aluminum bowsprit  enhances off-wind performance. A daggerboard provides efficient windward performance; this, along with the kickup rudder, enables the F-31 to moor in very shallow water or even be beached.
