Corsair Marine have answered the customer calling to deliver a new and improved version of the tried and trusted Corsair C31 by uniting both performance and comfort, conceiving the Corsair Cruze 970. The Corsair Cruze 970 stays true to the award winning qualities of the C31 but takes inspiration from the space and comfort of the Corsair 37 design, to create the ultimate trimaran that the entire family can enjoy. The Corsair Cruze 970 will make her debut in Australia at the Sydney International Boat Show, starting this Thursday 2 August to 6 August.


The Corsair brand is widely recognised for its commitment to not only performance but reliability and comfort. The Cruze 970 does not concede on performance capability and includes an additional 15% space inside compared to the original C31. The saloon is fitted with additional drawers and storage and larger sleeping spaces for a sail sleepy crew. The functional cockpit has been extended and the comfortable and spacious seating design was inspired by the C37 model’s comfort focus. Like the C31, the Cruze 970 is also easily trailered and can be pushed up onto the sand while guests explore the surroundings.

The Cruze 970 has a string of additional features that come as standard. To scratch the surface for you, included is a LED monitor display, 2 burner propane stove, dedicated toilet area including pressurised water and forward guest and aft owners’ berths. Her exterior includes a retractable carbon fibre bow sprit with deck hardware for spinnaker and screacher control, transom ladder with pressurised fresh water shower and rotating aluminium wing mast.

The Corsair Cruze 970 is powerful and smooth and will not disappoint lovers of the original C31, but with her added space and comfort design has well and truly brought the Corsair brand into the future.
