Vessel Walkthrough

Starting forward is the double v-berth cabin. There are hanging lockers aft of the berth to port and starboard and shelving above the berth to outboard.
Port aft of the forward cabin is the head unit. The sink with shower faucet is situated forward with a mirror-fronted cabinet above and a storage cupboard below. Aft is the showering area and the head. Opposite the head unit to starboard is a large hanging locker.
Next aft is the main salon. To starboard is an upholstered bench settee with a three drawer unit to forward. Opposite to port is an upholstered U-shaped settee with an infill so that it can be converted into an extra double berth. To centerline is a folding dining table. There is plenty of storage in the main salon both below and above the settees to outboard.
Port aft of the main salon is the galley. To forward are the twin stainless steel sinks, to outboard the stove and aft are the refrigeration units. There is storage beneath the worktops and above to outboard and aft in the galley.
Aft of the starboard settee is the navigation station facing to outboard. There is a large chart table with drawers below and navigation equipment above.
The master cabin aft is entered aft of the navigation station. The walkthrough to the large double berth has a head which is covered with an upholstered top and large hanging locker to outboard. The double berth is situated aft athwartships. There is additional storage beneath the berth.
The interior has been re-upholstered and has been fully stained and varnished in 2005. The interior is light and airy with plenty of opening ports and overhead hatches.

The O’Day 40’ built a reputation of being a good, racer/ cruiser, offering many traditional attributes, with some welcome, modern features.

‘Glass Slipper’ was previously owned, by one of the best shipwrights there is in the Caribbean and as their own personal boat, they of course, ‘poured in, all the love they could.’ Hence, a vessel that has had basically a refit and it shows.

The current owner has used her lightly, since his ownership and is now motivated to sell.
