Corsairs are one of the most popular centre cockpit yachts available, due to their sailing performance as much as their excellent interiors. The present owners purchased her in 2001 and we are the third owner. She has been cruised here and abroad providing excellent family sailing.
Designer Ed Dubois said of this design, " The Westerly Corsair follows the line set with our Westerly designs combining excellent sea-worthiness, speed and handling, with high volume below decks. The accommodation layout is carefully arranged to satisfy both the long distance yachtsman and the weekend sailor".
The Corsair is designed to be stiff with a high ballast ratio and good form stability. The hull is made from GRP using premium quality gel coats and polyester resin reinforced with CSM and woven rovings in high stress areas.
The Keel is cast iron of moderate length and draft and is attached by marine grade stainless steel bolts to Lloyds recommendation.
The deck is a sandwich construction of balsa core plus hardwood pads in way of deck fittings and a hardwood king plank in the foredeck.
The Corsair comes complete with a full Lloyds Hull construction certificate from new.
The Yacht is a tribute to the later Westerly craftsmen with accommodation for up to 8 people. The designers set out to provide comfortable and useable space.
The saloon is large and spacious with 12' 6" beam and a generous headroom of 6' 5". Two settee berths are provided with the port berth simply converting to a wide double when required. All interior head lining panels re-covered in 2007.
In the centre of the saloon is the teak table with a handy drinks locker in the centre section.
The walk through to the aft cabin is port side and has a navigators berth plus access via a large removable panel to the engine.

Fore cabin: There are two full length berths in the V berth which can be easily converted with an infill to make a double berth. Above each berth are fitted shelves and individual reading lights.
Aft Cabin: A particular feature of the Corsair is the large aft cabin with double berth, fitted shelves for storage and hanging lockers.
On deck the wide side decks give ease of movement and safety. All the halyards and sheets are led aft to winches by the centre cockpit for easy handling. Deck fittings and hardware are ergonomically sited and safety was a major consideration in the positioning of handrails, double lifelines and stainless steel bow and stern rails.
The self-draining centre cockpit is deep and comfortable and provides a safe working area.
There is a cavernous sail locker below the starboard cockpit seat which has sufficient space for all the usual cruising gear. Access is sage with two steps and a gull wing locker lid. In this locker there is access to the engine.
The wheel steering is connected via cables to the quadrant on the rudder stock. The rudder is a partly balanced spade moulded on to a solid stainless steel stock.
