The O’Day 272 was designed to be fast, moderately light, lively and easily sailed by two. The vessel draws just under 35” of water; yet is has 1,930 lbs. of lead ballast lowering the center of gravity by using a keel with “wings” to minimize healing and allowing her to enter shallow areas. Her cockpit is large with wide, contoured seats and the interior is roomy. Note 6’2” headroom at the companionway and 5’10” at the main bulkhead. A one-year sublease in the Lower Santa Cruz Harbor is a possibility.

The Honda 9.9 hp four-stroke outboard engine, new motor mount, is in excellent condition. At her last haulout in July 2014, she received a complete bottom service with two gallons of epoxy type Pro Gold antifouling paint after having been fully epoxy primed.

She has been very well cared for with a new dodger, new upholstery, new ports with new frames and new forward hatch. This is an exceptiionally clean boat.
