Compadre is a very special, one-off, practical pilothouse cutter, custom built by the highly respected Willard Boat Company in Costa Mesa, California.

 

She was designed by the well-known noted architect, William Lapworth , known for his famous Cal 40 design. The Lapworth 55 was modeled after the popular Cal Cruising 46, incorporating the same moderate displacement, low wetted surface, long waterline and balanced spade rudder.  For passage making comfort and the optimum trade-off between shoal draft and effective lateral resistance, the Lapworth 55’s keel is relatively long and shallow (6 feet). By establishing a ballast/displacement ratio of 33 percent, drawing a decidedly finer entry, and firming up the bilges amidships, Lapworth helped the new design’s stability and pointing ability and thus made her a better performer to windward.  She is fitted with Harken roller furling units on both her moderate-sized headsails and her medium aspect-ratio mainsail is also roller furling (Hood Stoway).

 

Lapworth took great pains to make his long-legged sailboat a pleasant place to live. The pilothouse and cockpit comprise an all-weather sailing center with not only inside and outside steering stations, but also a galley, dinette and nav station in the pilothouse.  Decks are wide and clean, and electrically powered Barient 28s provide muscle when it is needed, as do the electric anchor winches installed (with roller chocks) both fore and aft.  Hatches permit direct access from the deck to the engine room and shower.  Dorades, hatches and port lights throughout provide healthy amounts of light and air below.
