Styling
 
@Welcome aboard the O'Day 322. You'll see a brilliant, wide-open layout with headroom of six feet or more extending into the forward cabin. The spacious arrangement features a "disappearing" section of forward bulkhead which opens up the boat's interior to the bow for a bright, airy feeling. Overhead lockers are aircraft style, and there is abundant shelving and ample storage spaces. The drop-leaf table seats up to six, folding to allow a double berth in the main cabin. There are two private, fully enclosed double staterooms: one forward; and the other aft of the companionway ladder.
 
New interior colors have been introduced: light grey fiberglass hull liner>and overhead, matching laminates on cabinet faces, and a coordinated tone on laminated counter and table surfaces. All woodwork is richly oiled and hand-rubbed teak. Stainless steel chainplate rods tie the sidestays to the rigid Unipan, linking the mast and rig to the hull and ballast keel.@
 
Ample windows, opening ports and skylights provide a bright and airy feeling. Plentiful electric lighting keeps entertainment going until it's time to turn in. The overall exterior appearance of the O'Day 322 is stylish and contemporary. The powerful hull form assures buoyancy and stability in stiff breezes as well as providing large interior volume. Color treatment is all new. The medium-grey hull with lighter grey water-line and sheer stripe, sharply contrasted by a red accent, is unique and makes the 322 a standout on any waters. The deck layout and finish are all new as well. The double rail pulpits and double lifelines are also standard on the O'Day 322.
 
Sailing
 
@Like all O'Day Yachts, the 322 is first and foremost a comfortable, well-appointed, full-powered auxiliary. It was designed and built to meet the suggestions and needs of the thousands of knowledgeable sailors we've spoken with at boat shows and O'Day Owners' Rendezvous.
 
The O'Day 322 smartly out-sails earlier O'Days and other conventional cruiser/racers of her size.
 
The O'Day 322 is the product of yacht designers operating independently of the builder. This is our philosophy, as we believe outside sources bring freshness and innovation to design unobtainable from a captive designer or team. The 322's creator, Hunt Associates of Boston, has a history of designing cruising and racing yachts--both sail and power--spanning nearly 50 years. Their association with O'Day goes back to the sixties, with the 322 clearly their most innovative and best effort to date.
 
The Hunt marine design was enhanced with styling and finish recommendations from a leading industrial design firm from Boston, Gunn Associates, and with the Hydrokeel, wing keel developed by Innovative Sailing Design, Ltd. of Seattle.
 
The O'Day 322 comes equipped with a radialcut 140% genoa jib designed for roller reefing and furling. This means easy sail handling without leaving the comfort and safety of the cockpit. The mainsail has two reefed positions: each is handled by a single reefing line, which, along with the mainsail and jib halyards, are led to the cockpit. The slotted toe rail gives a firm foothold and offers performance sailors infinite attachment points for additional sail control. On the bow, forward of the headstay, is a double roller for anchor hauling. The anchor; rode and chain stow in a self-draining locker in the foredeck.
 
The cockpit seats, coamings and layout are designed for lounging and comfort when the 322 is heeled on a stiff close reach or at rest. O'Day's proven non-skid is molded into the decks, cabin top, seat tops and cockpit floor. The solar powered ventilators on the skylights over the head and stateroom pour fresh air (but not water)below.
 
For sailing, cruising and fun, the O'Day 322 is unique in styling, performance and comfort.

Keel
 
@We tried a number of combinations and chose to use the patented Hydrokeel for the O'Day 322. Among its virtues are shoal draft plus greater stiffness and the same or better windward performance when compared to a much deeper fin keel of@the same weight. The Hydrokeel-equipped O'Day 322 is the equal or superior to a similar boat drawing 5'8"a foot and half more than the O'Dav's modest 4'2"!
 
The Hydrokeel's exclusive, patented design has wide wings at a 90" angle to the vertical. These wings create lift to windward much more efficiently than a conventional fin keel, increasing their lift as the boat is heeled. The horizontal< plane of the keel's wings also dampens "hobby horse" motion which results in more efficient sail power and a more comfortable ride. Ballast weight (center of gravity) is at the lowest point, resulting in greater stiffness and smoother sailing.
 
As proof, identically equipped O'Day 35's, one with a deep fin keel and the other with the winged Hydrokeel, underwent sailing trials side by side. In winds of 10 knots performance was equal. From 10-15 knots apparent, the boat with the winged Hydrokeel had a slight edge. Above 15, the Hydrokeelequipped O'Day had a clear advantage on all points of sail. Skippers and crews were exchanged>several times to assure objective results. The Aussies proved wing keels worked in winning the America's Cup, and now, O'Day brings wings and measurably improved performance to cruising.
 
A Totally New O'Day
 
@The same strong construction techniques used on other O'Day Yachts are employed on the O'Day 322. External molded lead keels are mechanically fastened with stainless steel nuts and bolts to a keel stub extending beneath the hull. Polyurethane sealer/adhesive fairs the ballast lead to the fiberglass stub and assures a watertight seal. Even with shallow 4'2" draft groundings can occur, and lead is still the best shock absorber. That's why external lead keels are the choice of serious cruisers. In groundings, the Hydrokeel "dishes" in, rather than "digs" in. (Not a bad way to take to the ground, as we all do, sooner or later.)
 
As with many standard features on all new O'Day Yachts, (keels, engine sound proofing, foamed-on ice box insulation, wiring harnesses and more) we carefully specify materials and construction technique, not because they are cheaper but, because we have found certain ways to be best.
 
Worldwide, the O'Day name is one of the best known in sailing. The cruising performance is legendary among multi-purpose yachts, while brokers from coast to coast will attest to the brand's lasting value.
 
Rather than rest on our reputation, we have chosen to continue to forge ahead in the development of sensible cruising yachts. Design, construction and finish are constantly being upgraded with each new O'Day. The 322 is the latest in that evolution. It will provide owners lasting pleasure as well as secure value.
 
O'Day was there at the dawn of affordable sailing with the advent of fiberglass construction in 1958. Now, nearly 42 years later and with over 40,000 O'Days pleasing generations of owners, we introduce not only a new O'Day, but a new standard of yacht ownership, pleasure and value.
