This "Jewel of the Nile" is a solid Compac 23 with her 46% ballast ratio yielding a stiff "more stable" sailing boat. Along with the tremendous stability this Compac 23 has that Classical eye appeal that only a yacht of this design will quench your thirst. Further this Compac 23 has never been in salt water. She is a FRESH WATER ONLY Compac 23 ! !
Makes for better standing rigging with no salt water corrosion .
She includes a HONDA 9.9 hp four stroke long shaft (this too a FRESH WATER ONLY engine with NO saltwater corrosion) and a CDI roller furler system giving you confidence and convenience in sailing her.
The 4,750.00 price was established after having improved the cabin's interior headliner (new paint) and is the boat without a trailer as the trailer shown is a BRAND NEW 2019 trailer and is NOT included at the price shown of 4,750.00. HOWEVER, within the 4,750.00 we can deliver this yacht within a 200 mile radius and set her in the water ready to sail if that is a help, again, within the advertised price. Also, if you'll cover the lifting cost we would be happy to load her to a suitable trailer that you might supply. Last but not least, we can supply this BRAND NEW 2019 Galvanized trailer if that is of your preference at a $800.00 discount on the trailer if we do not have to deliver the boat.
There are no current leaks in the cabin though there is evidence of leaks in the past. However all bulkheads are sound where black darkness is shown at the top of the main bulkheads. And we just finished sanding the headliner and repainting her so there is NO flaking of old paint as there used to be. Additionally, we have added teak trim on the bottom and top of the facial teak that the circular windows pass through. Again, they do not leak as they did some years ago. Cosmetics are much better than were but one might want to replace the corrupted facial teak ply around the windows . Cushions are quite attractive. No smell in interior. Pretty nice boat now.
Additionally, within the price, we will supply the boat with the deck surfaces buffed and starbrite polished as needed. Might be that you would want us to refinish some of the exterior teak trim. Look at the photos and you will get the idea of this progress. Some of the photos show the boat as we received her and the others will give you an idea of where cosmetics are now. Obviously as a 1981 model she shows some age, but now, she is clean and ready for your first mate's inspection.
Give us a call and make an appointment to see this Compac 23. She has years of sailing service & love yet to give and will give you a hedge in depreciation as most depreciation has already occurred. Certainly makes a great money in and money out Compac 23 purchase. $4,750.00 is a tremendous buy delivered within the 200 mile radius ready to go !!
FRESH WATER ONLY for the boat and the Honda 9.9 and can include the 2019 Brand New Galvanized trailer if you like at the discount mentioned . Factory new tires and bearings obviously on this New tandem trailer ! ! Should give you years of worry free service opposed to a 1981 trailer.
