General Information
The O'Day Day Sailer is one of the most popular sailboats ever produced, with well over
twelve thousand manufactured since 1959.  Even the marketing materials for the Day
Sailer refer to it as "the boat that built a company"..

The parameters that George O'Day gave to designer Uffa Fox were for a swift, easily
sailed boat that could be built efficiently and at modest cost of low-maintenance
materials.  He succeeded with flying colors.
