Corsair Boats was established in 2008, on the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria by Mark Abbott, a master craftsman with over 30 years experience in boat design, construction and restoration.
With a true passion for building boats, Mark and his team use all of their combined skill and 45 plus years of experience to craft beautiful, practical, seaworthy boats. The Mornington Peninsula is a mecca for wooden boats which allows a broad range of skills to be perfected.
As well as operating from our facility in Rosebud, we provide onsite services to boats at Blairgowrie Marina, Martha Cove Marina, Hastings Marina, Yaringa Marina and Mornington Yacht Club and moorings in Portsea, Sorrento, and Blairgowrie.
Corsair Boats specialises in the construction and maintenance of traditionally built wooden boats. The iconic Victorian Couta Boat and more recently Maine Style Lobster Boats have become the backbone of the steadily growing business. Bespoke designs & custom projects are also very welcomed as well as the restoration & maintenance of a wide variety of many other types of boats.
We take great pride in using only the finest timbers and materials in the construction and maintenance of all our boats. Where possible we utilize native timbers such as Huon Pine which is widely regarded as the world’s best boat building timber.
Quality is paramount and a boat built by Corsair Boats will provide you with many years of enjoyment and adventure on the water.
