New 2015 Com-Pac Yachts
Clearwater, Florida(FL) is home to Com-Pac Yachts, in business since 1974. Les Hutchings, the owner commissioned Clark Mills to design a yacht with certain size specifications. Originally starting out with the Com-Pact 16 foot as their first boat, Com-Pac Yachts focused on manufacturing a yacht that would be seaworthy and giving good value for the money. It took time to design a yacht to the small size and make the innovative changes necessary and then it took them months build the boat. Focused on building small sail boats that were efficient and would be reasonably priced, Les thought they would be primarily purchased by retired people moving down to Florida. But Les was surprised by the amount of people throughout the country that wanted to buy his boats. This sail yacht model line was soon added to in several different lengths. The advantage of buying yachts built by Com-Pac is that they built them to what the customer wanted.
Although Les Hutchings went to others to design his boats, he is an inventor as well, creating a "Mastendr" quick-rig sailing system that made sailing a quicker process to get set up and going. He also changed the design of the rudder to give a different performance. His sons, Gerry and Richard now run the business and like Les, they are actively involved in continuing to improve upon the product they sail themselves. They decided to add to the Com-Pac line, with a line of cat boats. The cat-rigged sail boat was popular in the 1900's up on the eastern seaboard and is now updated for the classic sailor. Offered mostly in daysailers but also with a berth for overnighters, Com-Pac provides your choice. Designed with a roomy cockpit and seating around the edges, these cats are comfortable sail boats.
The Cat boats have taken off and become very popular and is their most manufactured line today. Com-Pac offers boats like the Picnic Cat that is small enough to beach with a whole line of sail yachts that can be trailered as well as a longer length yacht. Variety of models to cover the needs of the modern sailor, Com-Pac offers quality, seaworthy boats that hold their value.
