More About the 970

Prior to the development of the 32ft Cruze 970, over 300 C31s were delivered to owners all around the world making this model one of the most successful trimarans in the world. The C31 was chosen for its great sailing qualities & rugged construction for a number of epic adventures in the Arctic including an incredible voyage through the notorious North West and East West Passages in a single season. However most were used for cruising and racing.

The Cruze 970 is an evolution of the C31 popular design but with greater comfort and amenities similar to that found on the larger C37. The 970 is also slightly longer than the C31 and the deck has been raised creating approximately 15 percent additional inside space. Most importantly, there is full standing headroom in the saloon area.

The saloon area is finished with a clean, white GRP liner. The galley is larger with additional drawers and ample storage. The forward and aft bunks are now longer and wider giving more generous accommodation area for crew. The 970 also caters for privacy with a fully enclosed head.

The more functional cockpit has been extended and an aft deck mainsheet track facilitates free movement within the cockpit. The raised, side seating increases both comfort and visibility (a great design feature taken from the highly successful C37).

For sailing performance, the high volume floats have been designed with additional buoyancy giving the Cruze 970 greater stability and comfort for all her passengers.

As always, Corsair’s trusted folding system, proven in over 2,000 Corsairs ensures that road trailering remains easy. The retractable dagger board and rudder enable the boat to be floated in just inches of water or pushed up onto the beach when enjoying cruising adventures with family and friends.

Standard features include:

970 Sport: Performance Unleashed

The Corsair 970 SPORT delivers supreme performance through a new and supremely powerful sail plan. So while the Corsair 970 Cruze retains a mast built for road trailering, economical transport, and sail management, the Corsair 970 SPORT answers the call of sailors wanting to achieve performance on a new level. But this does not add complication – while taller and larger, the 970 SPORT keeps the simple and effective sail layout, sail handling features, and folding mechanism that make her smaller sibling so easy to manage. With the 970 SPORT, the Corsair design team have captured the spirit of trimaran sailing, while ensuring you have a boat fit for a weekend with the family and dogs, not just the dogfight.

Built to Race, but at home cruising All Corsair trimarans are built to withstand the toughest conditions. But Corsair SPORT models including the 970 SPORT are finely tuned to turn numbers into results.

Competitive sailors are legendary for their dedication to the sport and the 970 SPORT delivers a boat to match. The 970 Cruze is known as the “swiss army knife” of trimarans – equally adept at cruising, racing, and passagemaking. The 970 SPORT exchanges the swiss army knife, for the masters’ chef knife – delivering dedication to performance while achieving some remarkable versatility – she is still road legal in most areas and seaworthy and safe offshore. The Power to Weight Ratio stands unequalled in a 32-foot trimaran. But the 970 SPORT experiences remarkably low heel and feels light and easy to manage on the helm. So while you keep a boat that retains serious offshore credentials, you achieve performance figures to turn the dial red.
