This is a 1973 O'Day 22 sailboat with a shoal keel. It is a perfect cruiser for a small family and a great way to get into the sport. Having just finished extensive refinishing and refitting, it is in very good condition. The O'Day 22 is a classic design that is comfortable and forgiving in a large range of wind conditions. It comes with a trailer in good condition with working lights, fresh tires, new axle and hubs, and a clean title.
Some highlights of the rebuild: new cabin sole, decks painted, chainplates replaced, new mast tabernacle and organizer plate, all deck hardware inspected and refinished or replaced and then rebedded, teak sanded and refinished, hatches reinforced with fiberglass and new paint in the cabin. The hull has been wetsanded to restore the gelcoat to a bright, shiny finish. Halyards are brand new and there's a new Windex indicator on the mast.
Sails were new in 2006 when I bought the boat. The boat projects took a year and a half, so all-in-all these sails have only had a handful of days worth of wind in them. They were custom cut by Rolly Tasker. The genoa is a 155 on a roller furling unit.
The motor, a 3.5HP Tohatsu 2-stroke, was new in 2006, and like the sails, has very few hours on it. All the requisite safety/recreation items (PFDs, fire extinguishers, 2 anchors, new battery, swim ladder, etc) come with the boat.
The boat is ready to sail, safe, comfortable and reliable.
I will entertain offers and would consider selling it without the motor for less.
My O'day 22 has sold. I'm not sure if they saw the ad on your website
or the local craigslist. In any case I got lots of interest from your
site including someone willing to drive from Louisiana! Thanks so much
for the service. The boat sold for 3800.
