1986 O'Day 31

My wife and I are considering an O'Day 31. We are looking for a costal cruiser to sail around LI Sound. The boat is very clean and I can get her for $15,000. Any feedback on the O'Day is appreciated. Kevin

Nice Boat But I'm an Oday owner so I may be biased in my opinion lol
All Oday's seem to look alike except the 322 which was made by pearson before the company bit the dust.
Which engine does she have? swing keel?

Good choice for LIS

Hello,

I have an O'day 35 and I know a few people with the 31. The 31 is a good boat for the Long Island Sound. The 31 is basically the same as the 30, but with the addition of the swim platform. O'day was one of the first boats with the swim platform, and if you keep your boat on mooring and / or swim off it a lot, the platform is really great,

O'day boats are basic production type boats, very similar to Catalina, Hunter, Pearson, Newport, Islander, etc.

If the boat you are considering is in good condition and is reasonably equipped, $15K is very good price.

Good luck,
Barry
