Corsair Trimarans Arrive In UK

Regular readers of this newsletter will know we have eagerly been awaiting delivery of two brand new Corsair trimarans from the factory in Vietnam. The vessels were each shipped in a 40' container directly from the factory, and shipping took about 3 weeks. They arrived into Southampton and following customs clearance were then delivered to us at Emsworth. The models on order were a Corsair 28CR and a 24' Dash 750 click hereL The 28 was ordered for a client, and the Dash we ordered as a stock boat which is now available for immediate delivery.

We were once again impressed with the completeness of the package from Corsair, even down to the included tool box so you really have all the equipment necessary to get out on the water included in the price.

We photographed the assembly of the Dash, click this link to view the album on Facebook: 

The C28 will be launched at the end of March once commissioning is complete, as will the Dash. For a full spec including pricing for the Dash please click here: She is well specified with the upgraded North Racing sail option, a Banks Screacher on a Karver furler, the optional galley unit and water tank. If you would like to arrange a viewing whilst she is ashore or a test sail after launch please call 01243 377333.

OUTREMER 5X Launched in La Grande Motte

This month the brand new Outremer design, the 5X, was launched from the Outremer factory in the south of France. This was a momentous day for all, and we followed the launch on Twitter during the day. Here is a link to a selection of photos taken during the first sea trial . It was a flat calm day, and yet still with main, jib and gennaker they reached 14 knots over the ground. Unsurprising some may think, when you consider the design team behind the 5X is VPLP, the same team who designed the 33rd America's Cup winning trimaran, BMW Oracle. The 5X is set to strike new standards for that difficult balance between speed and comfort, with the most modern design and construction techniques. The interior is along the lines of the very successful O49, designed by famous architect Christophe Barreau. With modern design, clean lines and a feeling of light and space this is designed as a comfortable family boat that also provides Outremer's trademark exhillirating sailing experience.

Multihull World Spring Show

That time of year is fast approaching, and with the remarkably warm weather we've had this past week our attention is becoming more focussed on the upcoming sailing season. The brokerage is becoming busier, with the climax of the buying season obviously centering around our Spring Multihull Show, which takes place over the May Day Bank Holiday weekend 4th-7th May. If you have a cat or tri to sell then why not think about bringing it round to Thornham to take part in the Show? Due to work on new pontoons about to start in the marina booking is likely to be essential this year. Please let us know early so we can ensure there is a slot available for you. New boats on display at the show will also include the two Corsairs. See you all there!
