Compac 23, 1979 mk1 - $1,800

This great looking Compac 23 is named Bonnie Jean. Built in 1979, she is hull #21 and is 23’ in length. Compac 23’s are very well respected trailer sailors and there is a ton of information about their capabilities listed online. I’ve owned, docked and sailed her for the past 8 years out of Lake Pontchartrain in Louisiana. The boat has a clear title and registration in my name. I’m selling her now as I have recently moved to Virginia and I no longer have nearby water access. When I relocated, I was in the process of doing some maintenance, which I was not able to fully complete before the move. The maintenance was to beautify the exterior and to remove and repair some interior wood damaged by a small deck leak from a bolt connecting a bimini rail to the deck. The hard work is done, she is rock solid and there is zero rot, although there is still about 20% of the work remaining to make her prefect.

There are a ton of new and spare parts and equipment included:

  • Custom dual axle sailboat trailer with new wheels and tires, new wheel bearings and inner/outer races in all four hubs, tire covers and new LED trailer lights
  • 2006 6hp Tohatsu 4-stroke long shaft outboard motor. New carburetor installed two years ago. Motor is in excellent mechanical condition, starts on the first pull and has been incredibly reliable during my ownership. Full complement of spare motor parts, service manual and owner’s manual included
  • Standing rigging in good shape. Included is an entire set of replacement standing rigging from a Compac 23 sister ship
  • Newly painted bottom within the last 4 months. Extra bottom paint included.
  • Newly painted non-skid on fore-deck and cabin roof.
  • Two main sails - the primary is in good shape, the other is ok for a backup
  • One 160% Genoa – in good shape
  • One 110% foresail – in good shape
  • One 90% foresail – in good shape
  • Full set of cabin cushions that are in great condition
  • Newer fuel tank and fuel lines
  • All halyards and lines included, plus spares
  • Partial reel of new halyard line included
  • New Ritchie compass included
  • All teak bright work included
  • Anchor and anchor rode.
  • New reel of anchor rode included
  • 3X inflatable life jackets
  • 4X large fenders
  • Spare rudder and rudder post
  • Spare front and rear rails
  • New reel of rub rail included, enough to do the entire boat
  • 4X spare stanchions included
  • Many additional miscellaneous spares also included

    She is currently on her trailer in Pineville, LA and is ready to go to a new owner. If you’re interested, please email me your questions and I’ll reply back to you or you can email me your phone number and a good time to contact you and I’ll call you then to answer any questions that you have.
