New to the market. The current owner has added lots of extras to the boat.


O'Day makes a very nice quality mini cruiser. The cushions in the main salon are new, and the original cushions for the vee berth and quarterberth go with the boat.

The salon features settees to both port and starboard with a dining table that folds up against the bulkhead when not in use, and extends with a leaf when needed. There is lots of light and air. There is storage everywhere, behind the settee backs, under the settees and under the vee berth. 

 The vee berth is forward with an opening hatch for light and air. The head is next aft with a "real" head set up with a holding tank for pump out through the deck.

 The galley is aft with S.S. sink, manual water, 2 burner stove top, an icebox, and lots of counter space. There is lots of storage throughout the boat.
