Released in late 2003, the Core Sound 15 has been a sleeper when compared to the notoriety of her bigger sisters but she is one of our most fun boats to sail. Ease of rigging and launching combined with ample sail area and turn on a dime maneuverability make this boat a blast to take out for a quick sail without hours of setup. We have recently developed a complete kit for the Core Sound-15, see details below.

The Core Sound 15 is rigged just like the 17 and 20. Our preferred setup uses sail tracks on the masts for simple slab reefing.
