Hutchins Com-Pac 16 MK1, 1983

  • Located just outside Cedar Rapids, IA, 52227

  • LOA: 16'
  • LWL: 14'
  • Beam: 6'
  • Draft: 1.5' - Shoal draft fixed keel (no pins/pivoting mechanisms to maintain)
  • Displacement: 1100lbs
  • Ballast: 450lbs
  • Sail Area: 115 sq. ft.

    This Clark Mills designed boat is in very good shape, especially for its age. Com-Pac's are known to be very seaworthy and built like tanks; there's lots of ballast for this little boat, there's no wood coring in the deck and hull to break down and cause delamination, and the gelcoat is very thick. This boat is not a performance sailboat; however it is very stable and is perfect for someone newer to sailing or the seasoned sailor wanting to have a more relaxing, worry-free boat. The boat sleeps 2 people on 8' quarterberths with room for a cooler and portapotty (not included).

  • Boat/trailer have current registration.
  • The boat weighs 1,100lbs so expect around a 1,500-1,6000 lb trailering weight.
  • The interior was stripped, sanded, cleaned, and repainted w/ a 2-part topcoat paint last year.
  • All exterior woodwork has a fresh coat of Cetol.
  • The interior cushions have been steam cleaned and sanitized.
  • Hull has been polished, buffed and has a fresh coat of wax on it.
  • Magic-Tilt trailer with new wheels/tires (300 miles on them), bearing were repacked last year, new bearing buddies, new trailer bunks/carpeting, new LED taillights.
  • 2 sets of sails - 2 mains, 2 jibs. 1 set original (main has a few sailtape repairs), 1 other set with no issues.
  • Includes everything needed to get sailing (life jackets, fenders, docking lines, fire extinguisher, owner's manual, handbook, etc.)
  • Standing rigging is original and appears to be in decent shape still, however I will include a new-in-box replacement set as well.
  • Mast is very light and can be stepped by one person.
  • Boat on trailer will fit in most standard garages.
  • Boat is a freshwater boat and has been garaged for over half the time I've owned it.
  • The boat has a very active forum for any questions, tips and tricks (Com-Pac Yacht Owners Association).
  • Hutchins/Com-Pac is still in business, so replacement parts and upgrades can still be purchased.

  • I'm asking $2,500 obo with a 5HP Honda outboard, or $2,200 obo without.
  • The 5hp motor is a little heavy for the boat, but it will certainly have no problem pushing the boat in the worst weather.

    In the interest of full disclosure - it is a 35 year old boat so there are a couple minor blisters on the stern, there's a gouge in the wood underneath the starboard berth, and the cushion covers are getting pretty thin.

  • Otherwise, the boat is in fantastic shape
