US-built (1996) Corsair F-31AC for sale.
It has undergone several upgrades in the past two years including new laminate sails and an upgraded electrical system. The grey carpet interior has been replaced with a white plastic carpet that gives the cabin a brighter and cleaner appearance. A sprayhood that can be extended with a cockpit tent is perfect for cruising.
Designer: Ian Farrier
Hull Shape: Trimaran
The F-31 is available in two different versions: the aft cabin model and the aft cockpit model. This specific model is the aft cockpit model.
She 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; a table and extra bunk slide completely out of the way when not in use. Accommodations for five.
Interior features six-foot, two-inch standing headroom, a large double V-berth forward, an enclosed head, and a galley area with sink and a large molded countertop. Large storage compartments in each float augment the plentiful storage in the cabins.
The cockpit seats 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 fully battened mainsail has slab or jiffy reefing on the aft-cockpit model.
A foil shapped 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.
