The O’day 14 is a fractional sloop rigged dinghy sailor with a sail area of 42 square feet.  This sailboat was inspired from designs by famed Americas Cup sailor and Olympic medalist George O'Day.  For a number of years, O'Day Corp was the largest producer of sailboats in the US. 

The design was later modified by Ron Holder who is well known for sever sailboat design models including the Holder Hawk, and the Vagabond.
