Boat is located in Buford, Georgia.

2012 Com-Pac 23 Pilothouse with Custom Magic Tilt Trailer.

This is Hull 1, the boat you have seen in all of the promotional photographs, first shown at the Annapolis Boat Show, Reviewed and Test Sailed by all the Major Sailing Magazines and Reviewed by Sail Magazine when Selected as Best Boat of the Year in 2012 for Accommodation.

After all the Promotions and Accolades, this boat ended up stored in a barn in North Georgia for 8 Years.

The boat is in Like New Condition and still Smells New Inside.

The Westebeke Diesel has Very Low Hours.

Sails are Excellent, Interior is Clean with Practically No Use.

The Sail Magazine Review Summed it Up Perfectly How could anybody not be smitten by the Com-Pac CP 23 Pilothouse.

This is a must see.

Accommodations According to the Sail Magazine Review Belowdecks is where the CP 23 really shines.

In fact, the boat won a 2012 Best Boats award in recognition of its incredible interior layout.

There’s much more inside the CP 23 than you would expect, and it feels quite spacious, with six feet of headroom, three full-length berths and an enclosed head.

Theres also a little dinette and space for a helm seat at the wheel, with excellent visibility in all directions, thanks to a clever sliding door that lets the skipper see straight through the head compartment.

You can stand amidships and touch all these features without taking a step, but they all do fit. V Berth Forward makes a double berth Dinette folds down into a single berth Standing Height Marine Head with Holding Tank and Sink Inside Wheelhouse with all Instruments and Engine Controls Galley area with space for small Stove, Icebox Custom SunBrella Fabric Cushions Performance According to the Sail Magazine Review In 6-8 knots of breeze off Clearwater, Florida, I measured 4 knots of boat speed on a close reach.

The CP 23 even kept moving when the wind dropped to only 4 knots.

Despite its unconventional looks, this is an actual sailboat, and it tacked easily through 90 degrees without any unusual effort.

I think the 135 percent genoa on our test boat is a better choice than the standard 112 percent headsail in areas where the wind seldom kicks up whitecaps.

Under power the Com-Pac turned in 1¼ boatlengths and backed precisely.

The engine quiets to a moderate 77 dBA and is smoother running at 2,000 rpm than when it idles.

This is a capable coastal cruiser in which one owner has already cruised the Bahamas. Hull, Deck, Sails and Rigging According to the Sail Magazine Review In essence, the CP 23 is a standard Com-Pac 23 with a different deck.

The hull is handlaid fiberglass, the keel is lead encapsulated in concrete, and the deck is cored.

A tiny diesel snuggles under the companionway step.

Hull Speed
7.2 kn
Classic: 6.01 kn

Hull Speed

The theoretical maximum speed that a displacement hull can move efficiently through the water is determined by it's waterline length and displacement. It may be unable to reach this speed if the boat is underpowered or heavily loaded, though it may exceed this speed given enough power. Read more.


Classic hull speed formula:

Hull Speed = 1.34 x √LWL

A more accurate formula devised by Dave Gerr in The Propeller Handbook replaces the Speed/Length ratio constant of 1.34 with a calculation based on the Displacement/Length ratio.

Max Speed/Length ratio = 8.26 ÷ Displacement/Length ratio.311
Hull Speed = Max Speed/Length ratio x √LWL

7.24 knots
Classic formula: 6.01 knots
Sail Area/Displacement
16-20: good performance

Sail Area / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the power of the sails relative to the weight of the boat. The higher the number, the higher the performance, but the harder the boat will be to handle. This ratio is a "non-dimensional" value that facilitates comparisons between boats of different types and sizes. Read more.


SA/D = SA ÷ (D ÷ 64)2/3

  • SA: Sail area in square feet, derived by adding the mainsail area to 100% of the foretriangle area (the lateral area above the deck between the mast and the forestay).
  • D: Displacement in pounds.
<16: under powered
16-20: good performance
>20: high performance
<40: less stiff, less powerful

Ballast / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the stability of a boat's hull that suggests how well a monohull will stand up to its sails. The ballast displacement ratio indicates how much of the weight of a boat is placed for maximum stability against capsizing and is an indicator of stiffness and resistance to capsize.


Ballast / Displacement * 100

<40: less stiff, less powerful
>40: stiffer, more powerful
100-200: light

Displacement / Length Ratio

A measure of the weight of the boat relative to it's length at the waterline. The higher a boat’s D/L ratio, the more easily it will carry a load and the more comfortable its motion will be. The lower a boat's ratio is, the less power it takes to drive the boat to its nominal hull speed or beyond. Read more.


D/L = (D ÷ 2240) ÷ (0.01 x LWL)³

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds.
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet
<100: ultralight
100-200: light
200-300: moderate
300-400: heavy
>400: very heavy
Comfort Ratio
<20: lightweight racing boat

Comfort Ratio

This ratio assess how quickly and abruptly a boat’s hull reacts to waves in a significant seaway, these being the elements of a boat’s motion most likely to cause seasickness. Read more.


Comfort ratio = D ÷ (.65 x (.7 LWL + .3 LOA) x Beam1.33)

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet
  • LOA: Length overall in feet
  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet
<20: lightweight racing boat
20-30: coastal cruiser
30-40: moderate bluewater cruising boat
40-50: heavy bluewater boat
>50: extremely heavy bluewater boat
Capsize Screening
>2.0: better suited for coastal cruising

Capsize Screening Formula

This formula attempts to indicate whether a given boat might be too wide and light to readily right itself after being overturned in extreme conditions. Read more.


CSV = Beam ÷ ³√(D / 64)

  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet
  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
<2: better suited for ocean passages
>2: better suited for coastal cruising
