I bought my second OA last August in Ga. a 2001 OA 54 pilothouse which is just a 52 with the euro transom. The first one I bought was the 42 Classico which was always on the great lakes. I was always impressed with the fit in finish until I bought one, then I was overwhemed with how they put their boats together. I have had over thirty boat in my 50 years of boating and have had Hatteras and some other fine vessels but the OA is the best! (so far) I looked for one of the 50ft. pilothouse boats when I was looking but on the East Coast there are not a lot on the market. They come up on the West Coast and I was very interested in one down in Southern Calif. but getting it to the mid west was an issue. They are GREAT vessels and have a great deal of comfort and style. Good Hunting!
