Corsair 28

Corsair 28

The Corsair 28 is a runabout that builds upon the 25’s many qualities. Larger dimensions allow for greater interior space, but also for more powerful twin-engine configurations. The performance and agility of this model evoke a sense of exhiliration and adventure. The longer hull and 10-foot beam accentuate the dynamic beauty of the Corsair’s lines as well as enabling it to cut efficiently through the waves. A bigger forward cabin is ideal for an afternoon snooze while the cockpit is spacious and comfortable.
