  • 5. - - "- - - --- - ? - :- THE 01DAY220 - -------" - -,--- The ODay 22 has become a modem clas- sic. "Modem" because the design is entirely con- temporary and functionally very satisfying for a - - - - cruising family of four. "Classic" because over 3,200 have been sold. In 1979, the ODay 22 becomes even better. This year, weve redesigned the22 into a true keel /centerboarder - faster on all points of sail, easier to trail, equally at home in shoal harbors or blue water. Good looks never hurt. Part of the 22s appeal is that it looks very pretty. Pretty swinging on a mooring. Prettier yet under the press of all plain sail. The ODay 22 is a real sailing boat— straightforward and uncomplicated, forgiving for the new sailor, rewarding for the accomplished veteran. You dont have to be an expert to enjoy the 22. Even under the masthead spinnaker, new sailors are surprised at how comfortable the steering really is. The cockpit is 6 feet - room enough for all the family and a bunch of their friends. With the board up, the 22 draws less than 13". Board down, 43" of draft bites into the water for vastly improved windward performance. Home for four. Other 22 foot boats offer accommodations for four. But how many offer privacy for four? Forward, a V-berth and head area (the portable marine head is optional) are sepa- rated from the main salon by a solid door. The 66" settee berths are wonderfully comfortable. The galley has a built-in stainless steel sink, a five gallon water supply, and a place for the optional two-burner stove. The stowaway table hides under the cockpit seat between mealtimes. A boat thats sold complete. ODay doesnt skimp on fittings that make a sailboat safe and functional. We dont believe in making every- thing optional including the kitchen sink. So each 22 comes complete with an outboard bracket, roller reefing, a tabernacle for raising and lower- ing the mast, Dacron running rigging, halyards, and - most important - a main and a jib. The ODay 22 has the all-around personal- ity of a fine and proper little yacht. Lots of com- panies have copied the ideas. But only ODay can build a real ODay 22. Check it out with your ! nearby dealer.

  • 7. THE ODAY23. At the mooring, it would be easy to mis- take the ODay 23 for a lean MORC racer. Power- ful lines. Arresting good looks. No unsightly lumps or bulges to stuff it with more interior room. How can it be a spacious trailerable family I ----T cruising boat? John Deknatel and the Hunt Associates designers looked at every existing trailerable 23,_ __--- and decided that they all compromised features to get open space, or open space to get features. - So they resolved to make each ODay 23 feature - bigger than ever thought possible, attacking the problem with two unusual techniques. ThinkingIWO .41 and experience. I. The machine for cruising. Everything aft of the cabin bulkhead is loungeable. The-c_- — --- - table folds up onto the bulkhead, out of the way. - - A galley unit slides and locks under the port cockpit seat, and the sink and water pump unit MV hides under the starboard seat. For the few hours a day they are in use, the galley and sink units extend on runners into the cabin. The y are simultaneously reachable from a convenient seat on the companionway steps (where the icebox is recessed) or indepen- (lently usable from the settees. And when meal- times are over—zip—out of the wa y, and the space they needed is returned to you for relaxation. The settees themselves are 67" long, and the port seat extends inboard to form a double bed. Two more guests can ensconce themselves in the big 63" V-berths forward. A private heads to port. A hanging lockers to starboard. Storage bins abound for linens, food, navigational gear and collected junk. tL. • I The machine for sailing. If youre new to sailing, youll be pleased at how simple the 23 is to operate, how forgiving it is to handle and ii how well it performs. And should you ever find Aih- racing a temptation, you can expect to do surpris- ingly well. With the board down, the boat draws a deep 54". Board up, its a shoal draft 23". - There are 246 square feet of sail countered by 1200 pounds of lead ballast. What do all these numbers mean? Exciting performance! On deck, an anchor locker forward means no wet lines aft, and that the anchor lies quickly at hand when its needed. The forward hatch seals flush. Theres even an extra icebox for refresh- ments and a special ventilated cockpit locker to hold the outboards gas tank. If we thought you could buy a better boat than the ODay 23, wed build that one instead. L*3ft - We dont. You cant. Because the ODay 23 is a true state-of-the-art trailerable cruiser.

  • 9. THE ODAY 250 The ODay 25 is an extender of horizons - a distance traveler on the water or trailering behind your car. It is also Americas most suc- cessful 25 footer, ever. Families who really love their sailing, love their 25. John Deknatel and the designers at Hunt Associates conceived of the 25 as a maxi- trailerable that had big boat performance and feel, and 100% usable interior space. They moved the settees right out to the point of maximum beam, raising the deck for plenty of sitting room. Then they narrowed the trunk cabin, keeping maximum headroom above the walking areas, and leaving nice wide side decks for sunbathing. New raised storage bin/seat backs hold more gear that can be accessed with less hassle, and create a space beneath which allows each settee berth to gain almost an extra foot of width.

Two or three more can sleep on the spacious p settees (the huge port berth is either a lonesome IIN single or a cozy double). Another will find the I quarter berth snug and welcoming.

Raymond Hunt has created boats around which legends gather - such as the original deep V-hulled Bertram Moppies, the original Boston Whalers, the 12 meter Easterner, and the sensational Concordia Yawl which in 1978 won the Measure- ment Handicap division of the Bermuda Race. Under the leadership of the principal designer, John Deknatel, Hunt Associates is known today not only for its custom power and sail yachts, but for its expertise in series boat production. John and designers Winn Willard and Peter Boyce are able to match features to production techniques in a way which results in boats of unusually high value. C. Raymond I lunt Associates have been responsible for the ODay 19, 22, 23, 25, 28, 30, 32 and 37.Overall length 2410" Boom lengthWaterline length 21 Boom weight 10Beam 8 Rudder type FixedC/B Draft mm. 23" Rudder material FGKeel Draft mm. 46" Keel weight (approx.) 1775C/B Draft max. 6 C/B - keel material Lead -Keel Draft max. 46" C/B keel weight (approx.) 1825Sail area C/B 270 Seating 6 area*Sail Keel 290 Sailing displacement C/B 4757Max. recom.
