S2 9.1, 1987

  • Special Edition for sale.

  • LOA 29’10"
  • Draft 5’6”
  • Beam 10’6"

    This boat is hull #117 and one of only a handful of special editions that S2 made. The special edition boat came with a vacuum bagged hull and an alternate interior layout, reducing weight by 400 pounds while adding a 9” taller rig. This particular S2 9.1 SE has been set up well for beercan racing as well as port to port racing. The boat has accommodations for 8 sailors. There is a removable foam cored v berth for extra sleeping arrangements but typically this area is left open as the sail locker. There are two foam and fiberglass coffin berths that were installed last winter. These can be easily removed if the new owner desires to change the layout. When I purchased the boat it had been converted from an outboard boat to an inboard boat very early on in the life of the boat. New martec folding propeller in 2017. In 2019 the engine was replaced with a rebuilt 1992 yanmar 2qm15. During the engine replacement the parts bills started to spiral, it was discovered to have the wrong stuffing box(2” hose clamped around a 1.5” stuffing box) so this was replaced. The control cables were not long enough to reach the new locations, they were replaced. The throttle control itself was damaged while trying to change the cables, that was replaced. The muffler was too small for the new engine, that was replaced. Motor mounts, them too. This list goes on and on.

    Now for the fun stuff, the sailing.

  • This boat was set up to be competitive with the more modern boats that are joining my fleet.
  • I have focused on making the boat a competitive racer. This means lines, hardware, and sails.
  • The amount of money spent on new gear is more than the boat is worth.
  • I have purchased a “modern” sport cruiser so time for this girl to move on.
  • Storage can be negotiated as well as the boat stands she is sitting on.
  • She is still shrink wrapped from the winter.
  • Loads of pictures upon request.
