Com-Pac's CP-23 Pilot House wins Sail Magazine's 2012 Best Boat Accommodations award
The Com-Pac Horizon Cat is a 20-foot Cape Cod style cat-rigged sailboat with a shoal keel.
Welcome to the Com-Pac Idea
Com-Pac Yachts began business in 1974 with our first boat, the Com-Pac 16. The idea then was to build a seaworthy yacht with a strong commitment to value. (For the full story, see Hutchins Company Profile.) Since then we have expanded our line and today we have nine models, four cat-rigged and five sloop rigged. The Com-Pac line covers a wide range of sizes from a 14' day sailor to a 35' bluewater cruiser. Each model, regardless of size, is built with the same exacting attention to detail and that same commitment to value.
Our line of modern cat-rigged models (dubbed “A New Breed of Catboat”) offer the ultimate in trailer-sailing ease and rig set up, including our newest model, the Sunday Cat. All come with the Mastendr™ quick-rig sailing system that allows for the boom, sail, and gaff to be left installed on the boat while the mast is folded or raised. The shrouds stay attached and the head stay disconnects with the flip of the pre-adjusted forestay self-locking lever. This system, unique to Com-Pac, adds an ease and convenience to trailer sailing that is really astounding. Your mast is up and you are ready to go in seconds, not minutes.
The brand-new trailerable cruiser CP 23 Pilothouse offers a revolutionary combination of trailerability, cruisability, and livability.
The sloop-rigged Com-Pac Eclipse, designed for ease of trailering, has a shallow 18" draft (with board up), and a clutter-free transom for easy boarding.
Our newest sloop-rigged models are the Eclipse SL and the Legacy. We consider these yachts “crossover” models. We have taken all of the convenience and features of our cat boat line and applied them to these new exciting sloops. Features include the Mastendr™ (Eclipse), Boomtendr™ (Legacy), keel centerboard hull configuration and low riding trailers for ease of launching and retrieval.
The three traditionally rigged sloops (23/IV, 27/3, and 35) have full masthead, eight stay rigs and fixed keels. As such they can be sailed in areas and conditions that lesser sloops would be wise to avoid. Many of our sloops have long cruises to their credit. Coastal cruising, Gulf of Mexico crossings, and long term Bahamas cruises are a few that are recorded. One of the models, the 23/IV, is trailerable but it is still a full fledged cruising yacht. We did not compromise sea-worthiness or comfort. When the 23/IV is fitted with the available custom trailer, it can easily be taken over the road for vacation or winter storage.
The Com-Pac 35 offers a roomy interior for long-term cruising.
All of our models come with an extraordinary list of amenities and standard equipment. From the 14' Picnic Cat to the 35' cruiser, you will find everything you need for that day sail, weekend getaway or extended cruise. However, if you are looking for something other than an “off the shelf” yacht, then Com-Pac is for you.
Many builders today do not give you any more choices than cushion fabric and canvas colors. Whether your yacht is 14' or 35', nowhere else will you find the freedom of involvement and creativity you will find by sitting down with us and discussing your dream yacht. Our answer to 95% of requests for personalization is “we can do that.”
