Additional Information
A superior boat upwind. The performance of The O'Day 32 upwind is remarkable. Her low drag keel and her favorable sail-to-wetted-area ratio combine to drive her close to the wind: an obvious advantage when one must make a landfall to weather on a stormy day. A private stateroom . The O'Day 32 is one of the few boats her size with a separate aft-cabin. Boats costing twice as much seldom provide this kind of privacy. Her unique double berth lays athwart-ship. Its spaciousness will remind you of a double bed. Headroom is 6'1". A boat that truly lives six . Many 32' boats can sleep six. But few can live six. The O'Day 32 can live six comfortably. She's sanely divided into three living zones. Her forward area is cavernous: fore cabin, main cabin, galley and private head. Headroom in the main cabin is 6'5". There's also a large drop leaf table with room for six people and their elbows. Amidships, there's a deep cockpit that seats six. Aft, lays the private cabin. Purposely overbuilt . Many sailboats today are constructed with chopped fiber glass. This method is about fifteen percent less expensive than hand lay-up. The O'Day 32's hull and deck are entirely hand lay-up. More expensive, but better. Laying-up fiber glass by hand helps keep weightings even. It also minimizes crazings and surface distortions. Hand lay-up results in a sinewy hull. One that's stronger. Designed by architects. Not accountants . Cost-conscious accountants did not have a hand in the design of The O'Day 32. Schaefer hardware abounds: blocks, cleats and chocks. All lines are Double braided polyester. There are two Barient 21's two speed and two Barient 16s in the cockpit. Halyard winches are Barient 10's. Strong, safe, stable . Hard bilges, beaminess, and a favorable ballast to-displacement ratio contribute to the stability of The O'Day 32. She is also equipped with a lightning ground. Her standing rigging has been renewed with stainless steel wire and StaLok fittings. Her mast is stepped on the keel. Not on the deck. Her hull and keel are of one-piece construction. A seam can't open because there are no seams. A foredeck anchor locker . On The O'Day 32 you can store the anchor in a recessed foredeck locker. It's located near the bow pulpit. This self-draining locker is big enough to accommodate a 200' rode. Galley . The sink is stainless steel. And has a pressure water system. The icebox is extremely large and has a newer 12 volt refrigerator. Origo two-burner stove.
