Beautiful and rare Compac 23 diesel model refit and upgraded in 2009-2010 with new sails, standing rigging and chainplates, running rigging, bottom job, seacocks, pressure water, stereo, bilge pump, compass, depth sounder and more.

That is one lovely boat! Just wish I could stretch her an extra 7 foot so that I could fit my partner and daughter on her.

In your opinion, is she capable of sailing the big pond?

While the Compac is a really great boat, I would never attempt to cross the Atlantic on such a small boat. Maybe it could be done, but it would not be very comfortable. The Compacs are seaworthy boats, they aren't built for crossing oceans - large cockpit, spade rudder, shoal draft, not enough storage or tankage, etc.

You can read about our Bahamas cruise here:

The great thing about the Bahamas is that the passages are short so you can wait for good weather windows. We had a rough first Gulf stream crossing and were always nervous when we saw thunderstorms, but other than that we had no major problems or scares and it was a great trip.

Sorry, not looking for trades right now, but I may be purchasing a larger boat somewhere down the line.

Now listed on Ebay, item #260631035080, and the description has a little bit of additional information.

Bid on Ebay, or make an offer outside of Ebay the traditional way...
