Com Pac 23, 1980 sailboat for sale
Enjoy the upswept lines and convenient shoal draft depth of this well-respected overnighter/daysailer classic.
Named "Small Boat of the Year in 2019", this model is still being manufactured by Hutchins on Florida's west coast and tops the scale today at a whopping $35,000 new, same boat, same hull, (the Mark IV has a bowsprit), no motor or trailer.
Zig Zag IV comes with a convenient, dual axle trailer and easily stepped mast, which have allowed us to continue the process to bring her back to very nice condition at home each off season. From April to November we enjoy her well-mannered way in an affordable slip, a 15 minute purr out the creek and into the Delaware Bay. Her 6 brass opening portholes give decent ventilation on a sail and at the dock.
Lots of details to share from the religiously serviced sails, a 135% genoa on CDI furling and nice condition main and older storm jib, to the recently serviced and dependable 9.9 Yamaha 4 stroke w/tilt and new, HD engine bracket. She has a fresh epoxy spray painted cockpit, main cabin area, and stern last year, upgraded LED lighting inside and out, new circuit panel and electrical system wired to current Coast Guard specs.
No soft spots to report, deck to hull joint good, but could use some sealer, lifelines and standing rigging are in good shape, stern pulpit has a copper rail for some reason. All the teak will come back with a good scrub and she has new factory cabin boards in 2019, the battery is in good shape and about the same age. Last year we replaced the running rigging and went with a longer main halyard run back to the cockpit with new turning block, jam cleats and two new #8 Lewmars (not sure I really needed them) for single handing control.
There's always a To Do list and Zig Zag is no different, she needs some carpentry/refinish work below and in the rarely used forward cabin area specifically. The bulkhead and some of the brightwork below could definitely look better and the cushions are serviceable but not super and she does have a bright new turquoise mainsail cover. She sits on the trailer as she sailed last November, and can go right back in with just bottom paint and fresh gas.
This is a lot of boat for the money, is a great sailing and comfortable 23 footer with many a compliment on how she looks on a broad reach or beating upwind. Come see her in South Jersey, along the Delaware Bay.
