Corsair Marine International is a lightweight composite sailboat builder that specializes in building trailerable trimarans. Originally located in San Diego, California, the company was founded in 1984 by John Walton (son of Sam Walton, founder of the retail giant, Wal Mart) to build and market the Corsair F-27 trailerable trimaran designed by Ian Farrier.
In October 2010, the company was purchased by Seawind Catamarans, Australia’s most prolific and successful designer and builder of performance cruising sail catamarans. Seawind is a world leader in performance cruising sailing cats and exports its designs all over the globe. With over 30 years experience manufacturing and designing multihulls, the company has grown from strength to strength since its inception in 1982 when owner and Managing Director, Richard Ward started building ‘off the beach’ catamarans. As an experienced yachtsman and ocean racer, Richard built Seawind Catamarans up from grass roots but always with a philosophy of building safe, strong and great performing sailing boats ideal for bay or serious “blue water” sailing.
