Com-Pac Picnic Cat
A delight to sail

The Picnic Cat is a 14-foot gaff-rigged catboat that is a pure delight to sail.

Com-Pac Yachts began business in 1974 with its first boat, the Com-Pac 16. The idea then was to build a seaworthy yacht with a strong commitment to value. Since then Com-Pac has expanded its line and today builds nine models, four cat-rigged and five sloop-rigged. The Com-Pac line covers a wide range of sizes from a 14-foot day sailer to a 35-foot bluewater cruiser. Each model, regardless of size, is built with the same exacting attention to detail and that same commitment to value.

The ComPac line of modern cat-rigged models (dubbed "A New Breed of Catboat") offers the ultimate in trailer-sailing ease and rig set up. These include the Com-Pac Picnic Cat, the Com-Pac Sun Cat, the Com-Pac Sun Cat Daysailer, the Com-Pac Horizon Cat (diesel model), and the Com-Pac Horizon Cat (outboard model). All come with the Mastendr™ quick-rig sailing system that allows for the boom, sail, and gaff to be left installed on the boat while the mast is folded or raised. The shrouds stay attached and the head stay disconnects with the flip of the pre-adjusted forestay self-locking lever. This system, unique to Com-Pac, adds an ease and convenience to trailer sailing that is really astounding. Your mast is up and your ready to go in seconds, not minutes.

ComPac's newest model, the sloop-rigged Com-Pac Legacy promises to deliver big fun in a small and easy package. With the BoomTendr™ Quick-Rig system, she's quick and easy to rig: Unlike the Mastendr, there is no hinge in the mast length. The boom folds up to the mast and then the mast folds down. Once the mast is moved forward and lashed, the Legacy will fit into a standard garage without any alteration.

ComPac's sloop-rigged Eclipse SL is considered a "crossover" model. Com-Pac has taken all of the convenience and features of its cat boat line and applied them to this new and exciting sloop. Features include the Mastendr™ quick rig sailing system, keel centerboard hull configuration and low riding trailer for ease of launching and retrieval.

The traditionally rigged sloops have full masthead, eight stay rigs and fixed keels. As such, they can be sailed in areas and conditions that lesser sloops would be wise to avoid. Many of Com-Pac's sloops have long cruises to their credit. Coastal cruising, Gulf of Mexico crossings, and long-term Bahamas cruises are a few that are recorded. The Com-Pac 23 sloop is trailerable, but is still a full-fledged cruising yacht. Com-Pac did not compromise seaworthiness or comfort. The Com-Pac 25 is legally trailerable and, when fitted with the available custom trailer, can easily be taken over the road for vacation or winter storage.

Com-Pac's traditionally rigged sloop models come with an extraordinary list of amenities and standard equipment. From the CP23 to the CP35 you will find everything you need for that weekend get away or extended cruise. If the equipment you require is not standard or offered on Com-Pac's extensive option list, please contact Gulf Island Sails to discuss your needs.
