Boat Reviews By Owners
1973 -- 27' 0" O'DAY
Cockpit: Large cockpit, comfortable for sleeping
Cabin: I lived onboard for 6 monthes, and will live onboard again this summer. The head is a bit clausterphobic. There are no opening ports.
Construction: Layup is massive with 5/8" at the turn of the bilge. Equally massive was the delamination problems on the foredeck and cabin top due to balsa coring.
Handling: Handles well under power, but doesn't back up well.
I have had her outside in up to 30 knots, and she came out OK.
Engine Room: My boat is very underpowered with a 12 Hp Vire inboard. The 2 cycle engine was not original, and has no alternator on it, just a generator.
General Comments: The O'Day 27 is a good, inexpensive boat with plenty of room to add goodies , if one wants.
