1986 O'Day 31 located in Virginia for sale

31' O'Day 31



This isn't just a boat, she's the newest member of your family! Over the course of the last 5 years Ruff Life has taught her current owners how to be sailors. They love everything about how she sails so much that they are staying in the O'Day family and moving up to a larger version to accommodate their growing family.

Ruff Life hails from Ann Arbor, MI originally but her current owners sail her on the Potomac River and Chesapeake Bay. She enjoys winds from 10-15 knots and will give you a gentle heel for a relaxing sail. Looking for a bit more adventure, she has taken on 20-25 knots which allow you to hang off the side and get your toes in the water! Her current family loves her ability to sail briskly under only the 155% genoa while resting the mainsail and maintaining plenty of cruising speed.

Her cabin is nicely arranged, very large, and welcoming. She is equipped with an abundance of storage. Throughout their time together, the current owners have maintained her and updated / upgraded many parts to include a new dodger, new life lines, new headstay and new jib reefing configuration, new LED lights throughout, new portlights, and several layers of new bottom paint. The auxiliary power has been meticulously maintained and updated with a new alternator, new water pump, new heat exchanger, new starter, rebuilt raw water pump, rebuilt injector pump, and rebuilt transmission. Nothing has been neglected or forgotten on this lady.
