!!!! Traditional lines and modern features make this motorsailor truly one of a kind!!!
The "Breeze" is a one of a kind motorsailor with a gaff topsail ketch rig. Her hull and cabin house are uniquely built on the classic lines of a Gulf coast Biloxi schooner.
She was designed and built and is currently maintained by Captain Michael Broussard of Corsair Custom Wood Boats of Biloxi, MS, a third generation boat builder well known in the area. Captain Broussard has taught at the International School of Yacht Restoration (IRYS).
According to the builder, Breeze is a very safe and stout Long Range Cruiser designed to accommodate two couples for an extended cruise. She has large main salon/pilot house with ample room for entertaining in good weather or bad. Her interior helm station is superb for helmsman, rain or shine. In fair weather her Herreshoff drop pocket windows open the pilot house to breezes from every direction.
Down below you will find a 2 cabin, single head layout with a galley that will delight the gourmet chef in your crew. She incorporates virtually every feature found in a modern sailboat.
The boat is a work of art. When you talk to the owner you sense his passion for building with wood, which he has done his entire lifetime. He comes from 3 generations of boat builders and is honored to have one of his vessels on display at the Biloxi Maritime Museum.
The owner/builder states that Breeze is entirely constructed of .40CCA pressure treated,long leaf southern yellow pine, which should last for generations with minimal care and routine maintenance.
She is carvel planked and fastened 316 Stainless Steel ring shanked nails. Her hull is made of 1 1/2" thick long leaf southern yellow pine pressure treated to .40CCA . and guaranteed 35 years against rot, even if installed in ground contact.
