O'Day 302

Founded by George O'Day, a gold medallist in the 5.5 metre class in the 1960 Olympics, the O'Day Corporation was from the 1950s onwards one of the major US boat builders, and an early adopter of fibreglass for mass production, initially of small dinghies and daysailers, but later building yachts up to 40 ft.

The O'Day 302 was part of the last family of O'Day designs from C. Raymond Hunt before the O'Day Corporation went out of business in 1989. The design was much more modern than the earlier O'Day boats, which were far more traditional. After O'Day ceased trading, the design was produced by Pearsons in the USA, and then the moulds were sold to Japan, where a number of further boats were built.
