You might look at iheartodays.com, or try the post at Jeanneau-owners.com

That model is IIRC a Jeanneau Sun Fizz, but built on the east coast by O'day to that design, but O'days specs, when O'day, Jeanneau, Ranger, Cal among others were all owned by Bangor Punta.

Here is a link to an O'day brochure off the jeanneau site

Here is a link to the forum part of the Jeanneau site
jeanneau owners network - Home

There are a few folks on there with the SO36.2 that you asked about in another thread too.

O'Day 39

Yes i think i have found the one i want to purchase. I will be making an offer in the next few weeks. Although the boat needs some TLC it has a lot of equipment and seems sound. I see that you own one in the northwest. How has it been? Whats the maintenance like? and how does it sail?

Thumbs up O'Day 39

What year is the one you are looking at? Mine is a 1982. She has a solid fiberglass hull which was one of the selling points for me. I am wary of cored hulls although they seem to be doing well over the years. She is a very nice sailing boat. Heavy enough to not be slowed much by chop and waves. In force 4,5 and 6 winds easily makes 7+ knots to windward with the right sails. My Son, who races a lot, is able to get her to go faster than I. The only maintainence issue is the iron keel. Every couple of years rust spots need to ground down to bare metal epoxied, faired and re-painted. I think you've made a good choice.

O-39

The link that deniseO30 sent has pictures of my O-39. They are all my boat, interior and exterior, except for the one under sail.

Well you learn something new everyday. I had no idea that the Oday 39 was a Jeanneau design. Some friends at our marina have an Oday 40 which I did know was a O39 with a redesigned interior and "sugar scoop" swim platform. So I guess the hull is still the original Jeanneau design.

I also have seen an Oday that I think would be a 422, in the series with the 302 and 322. There is a picture of one on the I love Oday site. The boat I'm talking about differs from the O40 in that like the other boats in the X22 series it has a grey hull and the black plexi cabin portlights.

I think they went under before building many of the 422's.

Our first boat was an Oday 322, which we really enjoyed but we wanted a bit more room and some bells and whistles that our Oday didn't have.
