I have been meaning to ask the same question. Does anyone have any experiance with a 1979 26' Corsa Martini? How well are they built, handle, ride? I know they had some success in A Class and in Factory I but those were newer boats. Any information would be appreciated.

Thanks Kirk

Kirk:


I ran the old Hogs Breath boat which is owned by Steve Mikolos. Steve and I did St Cloud and Ft Myers back in 2000 in it(F1-96). It was a 26 and bad ass. I will never forget the first time I sat behind the wheel and looking out over that long bow. The boat runs unbelieveable in the rough also. Surely somebody knows something about the company. I 'm pretty sure they're located in Miami and build big boats now. ???????????????

Hey Brian, I met you at the Races in North Carolina in 1999. I actually bought Steves Fountain and raced it that weekend with Gary. He raved about the Corsa, do you know if he still has it. There is a 1979 26' Corsa Martini for sale up by me it looks like a good project, I'm curious if it's the same hull as Steve's boat,

Yea I remember meeting you. You ran with Gary , right? I heard you had a serious ATV accident or something , right? Are you healed? Do you still have the Fountain? Steve does still have the Corsa and not sure if it's the same as the boat your talking about. BH

Brian I did run with Gary for that race. Unfortuanately I had a bad snowmobile accident the following winter, I'm about 50% of were I was before, my back still bothers me and my legs are messed up, but that much better than the prognosis was. I'm greatfull for that. I sold the Fountain to someone on this board. My racing days are over I really would like to find some info out on this boat, anyone??? Brian I saw the pictures you posted of your new Cigarette, that is a beautifull boat good luck with the racing.

Try this, it's recently updated(6/02) and indicates they're still in business:

Corse Marine

Ditto of what Brian H. said about the Corsa. As far as I know Corsa is still in business but the last time I tried to contact them it was nearly impossible. No return phone calls, etc. When I finally did reach them for some info, it never came. I remember Steve M. telling me that Corsa is very hard to get ahold of and even harder to get them to build you a boat. But it's one hell off a boat !!! 24' that acks like 31' !!! I beleive Steve's Corsa, (Total Laser Care), is up for sale. Dave Warden

ttt

Does anyone know anything about a 1979 26' Corsa Martini, is it the same hull as the newer boats that ran in A-Class and Factory-1. How does it compare to other boats of that vintage?
IE. Cigarette, Sutphen, Superboat, Pantera. Thanks.
