Builder/Manufacturer O'Day

The O'Day 34 is a comfortable, spacious cruising boat with excellent sailing performance.  While designed as a coastal cruiser, a sistership, YUKON JACK, was the overall winner of the 1989 Marion - Bermuda race. ACADIA IV is a shoal draft model.  With a draft of only 4' 3" she can venture in places that most boats her size are unable to enter.  ACADIA IV appears to have had good care.  She's been hauled for the winter and may be easily inspected.
