Great boat by a great designer. Sailed on an aft cockpit for years and really is high on my list of great boats!

There is a yard out here building them- one of the aft-cockpit models is in build at the moment, with a few improvements- sugar-scoop being one, and an improved interior with fewer concessions to the 80's thinking that bred the "racer-cruiser". It's now going to be a 3-cabin bluewater machine with a degree of customisation for the owner... blah-blah-blah.
Take a VERY serious look at it, and PM me if I can help you with contacts. (I'm a chandler, so I do have an interest in a way, but I sailed one for a while, and they're magnificent boats!)

As a yachtbroker I sold two AC models, loved them both! Great sailing boat and built like a brick bathroom.

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.

Compass 50

our Sailing Yacht built in 1988 is in GRP. Yellowood inside. 50 foot, one lazarette at the stern. she did some nice cruising trip. Cape town to Rio de Janeiro and back, Cape Town to Cannes in France, (via St Helena, Ascension Island, Dakar, Canary, Madeira, Gibraltar. ) she is now in Dry dock for 1 or 2 season. we are doing a refit inside.
Next port of Call should be Balearic Island.
