This boat is fast, and that is what you can expect when sailing this Corsair F24 trimaran! But, she is also very stable and leans or "heals" very little compared to a traditional mono-hull sailboat thanks to her two "Amas" or side-hulls which act like training wheels on a bike. A very comfortable way to sail! She is a sloop, with roller furling sails, so a very easy boat to sail and learn on. She is available to rent (with Captain provided) for day charters on the Columbia River for $250 per half-day (3 hours) or $500 for a full day (6 hours). Special sunset cruises are also available by requesting a quote. She can accommodate up to 700 pounds of passenger weight, typically 4 adults or two adults and some kids. A popular destination is Government Island Marine Park for a picnic or beach combing walk. Or just enjoy the pure excitement of fast multihull sailing on the mighty Columbia. The choice is yours! You can also rent her for sailing lessons at $35 per person/hour with a 2 person/ 2 hour minimum. So, come sail with us! Bring your friends and family. Your food and beverages are welcome (You must open your own adult beverages). It's about the most fun you can legally have on a sailboat! I'm looking forward to assuring you have a safe and enjoyable time on the water. -Captain Joe
Ahoy! Let me introduce myself. My name is Joe Bruzda. I’ve been sailing and boating now for over 50 years. I’ve owned over 20 boats in that time ranging from 8’-47’, and I have sailed in some of the most exciting placing this earth has to offer. I’m also a licensed professional Captain and have taught sailing, relocated yachts, and worked on adventure cruise ships up in Alaska. One thing I’ve learned with all that experience is that if you love and take care of your boat(s), they will take care of you! So, know that my current boat, a Corsair F24 Trimaran is in top condition and ready to provide you with one of the most exciting sailing experiences you’ve ever had. If you’ve never sailed on a trimaran, you’re in for a treat! Trimarans are FAST, but also very stable with a slight healing angle, and very easy to sail. Contact me with any questions you may have and schedule your sail today. I’m looking forward to sailing with you! -Captain Joe

Our vessel is available only with a USCG licensed Captain onboard. Guest are welcome and encouraged to assist in the sailing of the boat, helping with lines, etc. Sailing area typically is the Columbia River between the I-5 Bridge to the west and the I-205 Bridge to the east. Full day charters can extend this area a bit in either direction. Discuss with your captain what you would like to do on your charter, and every effort will be made to accommodate your wishes. Other waters may be available (San Juan Islands, Seattle, Etc.) please inquire. Guests may bring a limited amount of finger foods and beverages with them. We have a 45 Qt. cooler which is provided for you at no additional cost. Alcoholic beverages are allowed, but guest must serve themselves. There is a simple porta-potty onboard for guest use. However, using a shore based bathroom before boarding is highly recommended! Guests assume all risk if swimming is requested. Our vessel does have a nice swim ladder for getting back onto the boat. For safety reasons all passengers must agree to comply with the Captain's instructions at all times and the Captain may terminate the charter at any time if he deems the passengers are unruly, intoxicated, or acting in an unsafe manner. USCG approved personal floatation devices (PFD) will be onboard for all adult passengers and all children under the age of 12 must wear a PFD at all times while on the boat. The vessel carries all USCG required safety equipment for a small uninspected passenger vessel.
