1973 O'Day 22' located in Louisiana for sale

22' O'Day 22'


Description: I have for sale a 1973 O'Day 22. There is a lot to be said about this boat. I bought this boat about 5 years ago as a starter to help me learn how to sail. I accomplished that, and in the last 5 years as I've gotten busier with work I've fallen way behind on general upkeep.

If you are looking for a trailer sailboat to teach yourself how to sail, this is a great start, however before coming to look at it you should know that it is a bit of a project boat, but not a huge project. Someone with fresh ambition could probably get it ready to sail pretty quick.

I have the registration on the boat and the trailer, both need to be renewed, but that shouldn't prevent a clean transfer.

The rigging on the mast and deck is solid. I replaced a couple stays 2 years ago that needed work, and since then everything is solid. The inside is clean, but it shows it's age. I've slept in there many times, the right person could make it cozy for a weekend trip.

Before contacting me I'll give you the short list of things that need to be done to the boat:

(1) Deck Cleat on bow needs to be fiber glassed back onto the deck.
(1) Bow eye for trailer winch hook needs to be replaced.
(1)Forward hatch on boat needs t be replaced. I lost it in a storm a couple years back. This isn't immediately necessary if you buy the boat, I've been keeping a tarp over the open hatch while I store it, and taking the tarp off when I go sail.
The cabin needs a good bit of clean up and work. The weather has been getting in from time to time, but I've tried my best to keep it out.
Also, the trailer needs some serious attention before it makes any longs trips. It needs lights and the driver side support for the boat needs to be rebuilt.

Thanks for checking the boat out, don't hesitate to e-mail me if you have any questions.

Equipment: I have a few pictures, contact me if interested.
