I am selling my 1973 O’Day sailboat Sidekick.  The O’Day 27 is a great family cruiser and very durable.  It is a great boat to learn on but also good for cruising and can handle all types of weather.  I have owned the boat for the past 15 years while sailing out of Montrose Harbor and the boat has only sailed on fresh water.  The boat is very comfortable whether you are cruising or hanging out on the dock.  The engine is in very good condition and can motor with using little gas.  The hull is in great condition but the deck has a few soft spots and I am told it can be repaired easily.  The boat is winterized and currently in dry dock at Skyway Yacht Yard in Chicago along the Calumet River.  Let me know if you would like to arrange a visit.  Spring launching fee is paid.


LWL: 22’9”
BEAM: 9’
DISPL:6200 lbs.
FUEL CAP: 12 gal.
ENGINE: OMC Saildrive 15 HP. 2 Blade prop

The O’Day 27 sleeps five, in a double V-Berth, single settee, and oversized quarter berths port and aft. The cabin sole is vinyl tile with carpet. The saloon table is currently fixed in place but can be removed. The galley has a stainless sink, icebox, water system, dry storage, and lower cabinets for stowage. The head area is enclosed by a curtain and the head is three years old, set up to operate as a pump out, and includes hanging locker. The blue upholstery was new in 2009.  The engine can be easily accessed from a compartment under the companionway stairs.
