When the O’day 37 center cockpit was first introduced, it generated a lot of excitement, for good reason. The separate aft cabin with head offered privacy not found on boats if its size. The newly refinished forward part of this boat houses the galley, salon, a second head with shower, and V-berth. The center cockpit has good visibility from the helm, and below the waterline is a full skeg hung rudder with an encapsulated fin keel with lead ballast.

Ad Astra is a must see if you are in the market for a good sailing comfortable boat that is moderately priced. The salon, forward head, sole and V-berth wood have been completely refinished, including new salon cushion covers. It “looks like a new boat” is a common comment for the for the salon interior forward. Cockpit cushions included.

For many more details, please see the most current Ad Astra Survey PDF, O’Day 37’ specs PDF, and the article by Good Old Boat PDF (not my property, the boat featured is a sister ship, not this boat, but is a great source and well written knowledgable article by Gregg Nestor for general O’Day 37 information. I highly recommend Good Old Boat Magazine to all boaters).
