This iconic Chris Craft 33 Corsair, 2007 model is available now for your viewing pleasure! This is a huge boat that is perfect for a day out on the Harbour or a weekend away!
This Chris Craft 33 Corsair is what dreams are made of, especially if you’re looking for a prestige Heritage Edition Chris Craft, that is the perfect day boat with overnight adventuring.
This is a fully optioned Chris Craft that is the epitome of the iconic brand.
The Corsair 33 features a new deep-vee hull and, according to the brochure, is designed to set a new standard for performance, comfort and style for a runabout of this size. And I reckon that comment’s pretty close to the mark. This is the first 33-footer I’ve ever driven that handles like an 18ft ski boat. She rockets out of the hole, accelerates effortlessly and has genuine ‘push you back in your seat’ performance.
Aggressive chines, carried well forward, form mini tunnels with the keel and trap air allowing the hull to virtually ride on a cushion of air. The ride is soft, quiet and above all dry. There’s quite a bit of flare in the bow, which aids the dry ride and ensures that all water and spray is thrown down and well away from the hull. She’ll turn almost in her own length, goes from ‘lock to lock’ without becoming unstable and maintains a level attitude even when you tramp it from a standing start.
Bennett trim tabs are standard and make it an easy affair to trim the boat when the wind is on the port or starboard bow, or one of your guests makes for an uneven load. Teleflex hydraulic steering makes the helm light and sensitive and the helm tilts to adjust to the driver’s preferred position. The helm seat also features a bolster system to further enhance the skipper’s comfort.
The Corsair 33 is described as a day boat, but don’t let that fool you into thinking that she isn’t a comfortable overnighter. For a couple, she’s almost ideal.There’s plenty of headroom below decks, the saloon is light and airy, the forward island double bed is large and comfortable, the galley has everything needed to be a useful food preparation area and there’s
plenty of room in the head.
The main cockpit is made for entertaining and features a removable table and levels of luxury normally not seen in vessels of this class. But the piece de resistance is the fold away bimini. It stows back into the transom for easy storage. Access to the bow is via two steps inlaid into the bulkhead and through the split screen. The foredeck is teak laid and while there is no bow rail, two stainless steel handrails offer security to anyone taking up station on the sun pad. There’s a windlass in the anchor locker and a wash down hose option.
