The “Corsair” is an award winning classic Biloxi schooner built in 1976 which invokes the lines of a classic shrimper or gulf coast freighter of centuries past.
With graceful sheer and sweet lines, the ship was designed and hand-built by Captain Michael Broussard, a third generation boat builder, well known in the Biloxi area, to US Coast Guard standards. Corsair’s hull is crafted from Southern White Cedar and the deck from beautiful mahogany. The original Schooner rigging with two masts has been converted into a magnum gaff rigged cutter sloop with a topsail.
With a length on deck of 57 feet and 74 feet overall, Corsair is a very spacious and comfortable long range sailboat. Corsair has been up and down the East coast of the US and the Gulf of Mexico, serving as a shrimp vessel, sail training vessel, participating in advertising campaigns and has even played a role in the movie “Interview with a Vampire.”
In 2017 Corsair was carefully refurbished and converted from a workboat to an extremely stylish and premium quality charter vessel. The main salon is very roomy and is located adjacent to the galley which is our chef’s pride.
3 double berths and 2 single berths with privacy dividers and curtains are to be found waiting for you. The bathroom is stunning and unique, Corsair may be the only modern schooner equipped with a claw foot tub.
You can now be a part of Corsair‘s history and sail with us on an unforgettable and memorable cruise through the divine Caribbean islands. Participate in sailing maneuvers, take over the helm, spend time fishing or just lay back and unwind with a cold drink in our lounge.
