Hunter 27, Oday 27

I am looking at buying a small liveaboard and am looking for opinions on these boats. They are both late 1970's. I'm not worried about the size for living, more so how they are structurally. I would love to hear about other makes too. Thanks.

Where are you? CS27 (Canadian Sailcraft) is a well built boat, solid glass hull, well attached keel without a "smile" ever, outboard rudder, bulkheads glassed all around (even to the deck which is not seen often enough), diesel (usually Yanmar), and roomy enough to live on with full headroom and a good layout.

Want big space in a smallish budget and a smallish boat? Look around for a Tanzer 28. The looks are an acquired taste, but nothing in a similar length is as roomy. If you are only choosing between a Cherubini Hunter and an Oday, i'd go with the Hunter.

The CS 27 looks nice. I am located near Birmingham, AL right now and am looking for boats near Mobile, Gulf Shores, Pensacola area. I'm not set on these two boats, they are just a couple for sale down there. I would like to buy in the some what near future.

Would think that the build quailty of the two would be about the same, both production boats from the same period. Hunter is still building boats, so parts should be easy obtained. But O'day has a big following and D & R can help you in finding anything you may need. I would go mor toward the O'day, I have a 26 and think its a great boat. But in your case, I would think how the 2 boats have been maintained would be the best thing to look at.
