The venerable Corsair F-27 Sport Cruiser. Easy launching, shoal draft, fingertip control on the helm, and speeds that will make you the envy of your monohull friends.
This is an interesting boat. Though dating from 1988, the floats are 2nd generation having been replaced in the late '90s after the original ones were damaged when the boat broke loose from its mooring. The mast is also not the original Forespar but has been upgraded to the Sparcraft mast from Charleston Spar. And lastly, for those of you who can't stand the Frontrunner carpet interiors, this boat has had the carpet removed from the main cabin and been painted white. And a very recent sail inventory makes this boat very attractive.
