This is Hull #1, the boat you have seen in all of the promotional photographs, first shown at the Annapolis Boat Show, Reviewed and Test Sailed by all the Major Sailing Magazines and Reviewed by Sail Magazine when Selected as Best Boat of the Year in 2012 for Accommodation.
After all the Promotions and Accolades, this boat ended up stored in a barn in North Georgia for 8 Years. The boat is in Like New Condition and still Smells New Inside. The Yanmar 1GM10 Diesel has Very Low Hours. Sails are Excellent, Interior is Clean with Practically No Use.
The Sail Magazine Review Summed it Up Perfectly:
"How could anybody not be smitten by the Com-Pac CP 23 Pilothouse?"
This is a must see!
ccording to the Sail Magazine Review: "Belowdecks is where the CP 23 really shines. In fact, the boat won a 2012 Best Boats award in recognition of its incredible interior layout. Theres much more inside the CP 23 than you would expect, and it feels quite spacious, with six feet of headroom, three full-length berths and an enclosed head. There's also a little dinette and space for a helm seat at the wheel, with excellent visibility in all directions, thanks to a clever sliding door that lets the skipper see straight through the head compartment. You can stand amidships and touch all these features without taking a step, but they all do fit."

According to the Sail Magazine Review:
"In 6-8 knots of breeze off Clearwater, Florida, I measured 4 knots of boat speed on a close reach. The CP 23 even kept moving when the wind dropped to only 4 knots. Despite its unconventional looks, this is an actual sailboat, and it tacked easily through 90 degrees without any unusual effort. I think the 135 percent genoa on our test boat is a better choice than the standard 112 percent headsail in areas where the wind seldom kicks up whitecaps.
Under power the Com-Pac turned in 1 boat length and backed precisely. The engine quiets to a moderate 77 dBA and is smoother running at 2,000 rpm than when it idles.
This is a capable coastal cruiser in which one owner has already cruised the Bahamas."
According to the Sail Magazine Review: "In essence, the CP 23 is a standard Com-Pac 23 with a different deck. The hull is handlaid fiberglass, the keel is lead encapsulated in concrete, and the deck is cored. A tiny diesel snuggles under the companionway step."
