O'Day Corp.

1958 - 1989

Founded by famed Americas Cup sailor and olympic medalist George O'Day. In the beginning George O'Day Associates was only a distributor for several brands of small Sailboats. Some were produced by Fairey Marine of England and Marscot Plastics in the USA. (O'Day took over Marscot in 1958 to build the RHODES 19.) Soon he became involved in producing his own line of boats. Among the most successful projects was in commissioning Uffa Fox to design the DAYSAILER in 1969. Eventually, more than 12000 of these were sold. O'Day sold his company to the conglomerate Bangor Punta (later Lear Siegler) in 1966. For a number of years, O'Day Corp. was the largest producer of sailboats in the US.
Manufacturers ID (>1972): XDY.
