"The O'Day 37 caused a stir when it was introduced in 1978. It was one of the first center-cockpit models less than 40 feet long that actually looked and behaved like a sailboat, not a powerboat with a mast. The 37 was an immediate success"…    John Kretschmer   Delivery Captain / Author

A great cruising boat or liveaboard under $25K!  Rocky Comfort II is a center cockpit with a lot of space for the money—and she sails well too. 

The head system has been converted to a composting commode to eliminate odor from hoses and holding tank.  The owner couldn’t be more pleased with the results.

Contact the listing broker today to schedule a time to see Rocky Comfort II.

Living Area

The aft cabin features a large athwartship berth, plenty of room for changing, a nav instrument area (within easy reach from the helm), drawers, a large hanging locker, access to the engine, and a huge separate storage room with cabinets and shelves.  The separate storage room was originally a second head, but the owner converted it to storage which is a more sensible use of space on a boat in this size range.  The second head will be easy to reinstall should a future owner so desire. The aft cabin has a separate companionway with access to the cockpit.

The forward cabin has a V-berth with storage underneath.  Just aft of the forward cabin and to starboard is a large hanging locker.

The salon has two straight settees which both double as good sea berths and a drop-leaf table in the center.  Above the settees are shelves with slats to keep things in place when sailing.
