1978 Corsair Custom 57 Corsair Sloop Sailboat in Elberta, Alabama

Stock #067293

July 2016 Update:
!!!! Full topsides refurbish has been completed!!!!!

The "Corsair" is an award winning classic Biloxi schooner built to the lines of a classic shimper or gulf coast freighter of centuries past.

Her graceful shear and sweet lines adorn a boat that was built to current US Coast Guard standards and her builder believes she could readily be USCG certified for 49 passengers.

She was designed and built and is currently maintained by Captain Michael Broussard of Corsair Custom Wood Boats of Biloxi, MS, a third generation boat builder well known in the area. Captain Broussard has taught at the International School of Yacht Restoration (IRYS).

She is built of Southern White Cedar, very resistant to rot and Pressure Treated Long Leaf Yellow Pine treated with preservatives. Her deck is mahogany, all of the other wood exposed to the weather is .40 CCA pressure treated southern yellow pine that may last centuries, given minimal care and maintenance.

With a length on deck of 57 feet and an overall length of 74 feet, Corsair is an able long range, blue-water sailboat that has been up and down the east coast, serving as a sail training vessel, participating in advertising campaigns and even playing a role in the movie, "Interview with a Vampire"

Alternately described as a pilot house sloop - motor sailor by some, she will comfortably cruise at 8 knots, has a 10 knot top speed under power and has been known to power sail -surf at 14 knots. Her 2000 Perkins Sabrecat (Cat) with 265 HP is very quiet, and sits in a masterly designed engine room that is fully insulated with Sounddown insulation creating a very quiet boat when under power.

The main salon has plenty of room and is adjacent to a galley that is a chef's delight. The head is unique and Corsair may be the only modern schooner equipped with a claw foot tub.

Information On Condition

According to the seller, this boat is virtually turnkey and ready to take you anywhere in the world.

The last haul out was in Dec 2015, as pictured and the bottom was painted.

Her AC and DC power panels have just been replaced (spring 2016)

Update January 2017: From the seller: The vessel has no defects and requires nothing other than routine maintenance for such a vessel. The vessel was launched in 1978 at a cost of $175.000.00 in materials and 11,000 man hours to construct, If you figure those man hours at $35.00 an hour which is well under for that level of skill at that time, the initial cost of said vessel would be $560,000.00. In todays dollars that figures to be 1.2 million replacement cost.
