Corsair is an excellent example of a one-owner 43 Serendipity Sloop 1980, designed by Doug Peterson and built in California. She was designed as an offshore Bluewater Racer/Cruiser and this Grand Prix flush-deck deep-draft model proved to be very competitive for the Admiral's Cup, SORC, TransPac, and Big Boat Series in her day, but remains very competitive today in most regional and club regattas. Corsair spent most of her life cruising and racing in and around San Francisco, and sailed to St. Petersburg in 2014 where she awaits her next owner. Her current slip at the highly desirable, Downtown, deep-water St. Petersburg Municipal Marina on Tampa Bay is transferable to the new owner; where there is normally a two year plus waiting list.

Sail Inventory totals 14 Sails  and includes a full set of competitive racing sails as well as delivery/cruising sails, as well as a conventional aluminum spinnaker pole and a Forespar Carbon Fiber pole for racing. Repowered in 1999 with a Nanni/Mercedes 40hp Diesel engine with only 600 hours, a 105 Amp Alternator, and a feathering MaxProp, she has plenty of power when needed. The tapered triple spreader mast & boom are Awlgripped to to match the hull and all rigging has has been constantly inspected and upgraded as necessary including the Navtec Hydraulic back-stay system.

The Flush-Deck, "T"-shaped split cockpit layout is all business with deck hardware positioned for infinite tweaks when every second per mile makes a difference. For Cruising, all lines led aft to the cockpit make short-handed sailing a breeze, too. Please note that some of  the interior photos depict the interior in near "Racing-Mode," and do not show the full set of Seven (7) nice clean and like-new high-quality fabric berth and settee cushions that have been stored in a clean and dry storage facility. In addition to the V-Berth Cushions (shown empty), there are two 7' Settee Berths and 2 Pilot Berths, in the Salon, and Aft is a Single Settee Berth and a Double Berth to Port. The functional Galley has all you need to prepare meals for your crew, and the Head with electric toilet, vanity, sink, and large separate shower stall are generous size and very functional for cruising.
Electronics include two 2018 B&G Displays in the cockpit and the Owner was in the process of selecting additional new electronics when his plans suddenly changed and this yacht is priced so the new owner can buy and install his/her favorite brand and models to complete the electronics suite instead.

So whether you are looking for a competitive Racing boat or  a proven high-performance bluewater-capable Cruiser, you won't be disappointed upon inspection because Corsair is an excellent value and priced to sell immediately. Call today to schedule a personal inspection.
