fast, stable family daysailer with new equipment—$1250 w/trailer
1978 O'day Javelin, designed by the legendary Uffa Fox, is a proven, self bailing, stable family daysailer. Huge cockpit can easily accommodate 4 or 5 . I am 75 and have routinely stepped the mast and sailed the boat solo. Stiff and fast up wind.
This boat is a good investment. Two of the things that go often go wrong with Javelins have been replaced with superior upgrades. It has a brand new Rudder Craft Rudder and Tiller ($500) and a brand new stainless steel centerboard. ($530). Hull has a few dings but is very sound including new self bailer. Package includes:
Hull, spars, running and standing rigging.
Main (with sail slides) and Jib (used condition)
New Rudder and tiller
New SS centerboard
Enhanced Centerboard tackle
Mast tabernacle that facilitates one person stepping mast
