If I remember correctly, the Compass
47 AC and CC and the 50 were built for the US Market by a Company in Cape Town
. Bertie REED try to promote these boats in the US market. Unfortunately, 1988 1990, was difficult for sell these boat in USA. TThe Company Gulf Product run in a Bankrupcy. I bought one built, in 1988, and in 2005 I sail from Cape Town
to Cannes in France
. Currently the yacht is in Dry dock
. We are doing a good refit
, and we should sail in 2 or 3 years. I have to work for the moment as yacht Master on M/Y over 40 meters.
May be keep in touch for the future. I'm looking forward to re open a Yacht broker agency on the French Riviera.
