Shallow draft (30 inches), fixed keel sloop, nicely appointed interior. Basically a small version of the ComPac 27. Can be trailered, although setup/take down time would be formidable (also 6000lbs+trailer weight). LOA is 27 ft, LWL is 21 ft. Interior height is about 5ft 9in.

Strengths: Well-mannered coastal cruiser, very-well built by a company that stands by its products. Often mistaken for a Pacific Seacraft Dana. High quality finish, rigging over built. Easy sailor with almost neutral helm. Very good for shallow water coastal cruising. Options include marine head, pressurized water, hot water, inboard. Diesel is a 12 hp Westerbeke -- shakes some, but very reliable. Turns in own length. Cockpit very dry.

Weaknesses: With tiller steering, the propwash from the diesel makes the helm somewhat unstable, i.e., you must hold onto the tiller at all times. Tiller autopilot is a must for long motor trips. Not a racer, slow to wind. Vee Berth smallish for those over 6ft 2 in.

Satisfaction: Very high. Would not hesitate to buy it again.

Pros: Great boat with high quality finishings and details.
Cons: None, I can think of yet.

Excellent cruising sailboat. I would not hesitate to buy another Com Pac, the Hutchins Company has been excellent.

Performs well under sail, especially when one considers the shoal draft. I really enjoy sailing her in all wind conditions.

Highly recommended.
