Corsair is a twenty-eight foot beamy sloop designed by Slabby Larsen and built at the famous JENSEN boatyard in Denmark in 1960. She was shipped over in a container to the US and landed in Oakland where she embarked on her life in the San Francisco Bay. Completely retrofitted in the 80's, she came to her recent owners hands as a yellow painted boat in 2012. Then began her transformation into a bright hull and many other upgrades. Recent haul out and extensive work by Bruce Tipton of Port Townsend, 2016. She is a fine live-aboard actually with a spacious 9-6 beam. As her current Boatright said; "She's a big little boat."
