Corsair 28RS – Aft Cockpit Sports Cruiser
The Corsair 28RS has a much bigger cockpit than her CR and CE sisters. By eliminating the aft cabin the 28RS is lighter and therefore faster, which is so much fun in warmer climates where less cabin space is required.
Having said that, the main cabin has been carefully planned to allow for family cruising. The V-berth is ideal for one or two children and can certainly accommodate two adults. In addition, the settee area converts to two singles or an expansion of the V-berth.
The 28RS is an easily trailerable sport boat because of its light weight and low profile on the trailer. The transition from trailering to sailing takes about 30 minutes and the mast is raised or lowered using the installed winch on the trailer. Everything about the Corsair 28RS is designed to get you on and across the water quickly, comfortably and affordably.
