The F-31R is an enhanced performance version of the well-proven, maxi-trailerable F-31. Like all earlier Corsair sport cruisers, the "R" version is exceptionally fast, roomy, and comfortable. In this model, however, some traditional cruising amenities have been eliminated to save weight, and a substantially larger sail plan is spread on a modern rotating rig to give the already sporty F-31 an extra jolt of adrenaline that is sure to please the true performance enthusiast.
The Corsair 31R Performance Model is intended for the experienced sailor who wants the ultimate performance boat, but one that still retains a roomy interior along with quick and easy set up. In addition to its simplified interior, this model sports a modern carbon fiber rotating mast for top sailing efficiency.
The Corsair 31R is potentially one of the fastest trailerable yachts in the world, with a top speed of over 25 knots. Of all the Corsair boats sold the 31 is often the most modified.

Much thought was put into making this a light boat for superior performance - including specifying a mast, bow sprit and boom, all built in carbon.
The mast is a beautifully finished carbon fiber rotating wing section developed for Corsair by carbon spar specialist Omohundro. It is two feet, six inches taller than the standard F-31 mast, yet the rig overall is 65 pounds lighter. It is thus even easier to handle than the standard F-31 mast, and with less weight aloft it gives the boat an easier motion, even in chop.
The sail plan is simple and efficient with a square-top mainsail, and a custom carbon boom, attached to the cabin top. This allows very precise control of the mainsail camber. To safely handle the main sail, a micro battcar system was added. This results in the fast dropping of the main sail which actually needs to be slowed down with a loop around the winch.
Additionally there is a long traveler that allows for the ability to control the opening of the sail when needed on a broad reach. Ultra fast reefing can be done safely from the cockpit. The mainsheet can always be released with Harken’s trigger cleat - while a finger clutch on the boom automatically locks the reefing line.
A blade jib, an asymmetric spinnaker (with a sock), and a screecher round out the sail wardrobe. Flown from the end of a seven-foot bow sprit, the roller furling screecher is one of the most powerful and versatile sails in the inventory and can be used to windward in light airs instead of a genoa.
Interior moldings and equipment have been kept to a minimum to save weight, to boost sailing performance. Nevertheless, the cabin is spacious with standing headroom. A forward V-berth, plus mid cabin singles convert to a very large double bunk in the main cabin. A marine head with holding tank rounds out the interior.
At the end of the day, an electrical Torqueedo motor facilitates docking.
