    Vessel Specifications

    Builder: Louw and Halverson


    Type: Ketch Cruiser-Racer

    Engine Details: -


    Cape Corsair was built in Cape Town South Africa in 1961 at the famous yard of Louw & Halverson from a design submitted by the renowned international yacht designer Kurt A. H. Oehlmann of Lubeck Germany. Oehlmann’s classic designs of timber framed vessels are much desired. With only two owners since new, she has been lovingly cared for by both stewards. Her original owner requested that she be able to withstand the rigors of the Cape waters and capable of 9 knots under sail or power. Her first trip from Cape Town was April 1964 when she sailed to the Mediterranean via St. Helena, Ascension, Cape Verde, Canaries and Gibraltar. The 5,850 mile journey took 35 days at sea at an average speed of 7 knots averaging 167 miles per day. She is a classic 18 metre, 35 tonne wooden ketch of 5 metres in beam. She is cutter rigged with roller furling Genoa and inner foresail, a slab reefed main and mizzen; together with a mizzen staysail to compliment her down wind sailing ability. She can cross the Atlantic with no problem as the fuel should provide about 2,500 nautical miles cruising on engine alone and the wind is certain to fill her sails for at least another 500 miles.
