The Olson 911S is a 30 foot MORC design by Carl Schumacher built by Pacific Boats starting in 1985 or 86. Its predecessor was the Capo 30, a design with a taller rig and more basic interior. After Pacific Boats went under, Ericson acquired the molds and built a version sometimes referred to as 911SE with solid rather than a balsa-cored hull, thus adding some weight and deemphasizing the racing features of the Pacific Boats version. The 911S carries a large masthead rig with Navtec hydraulic backstay adjuster and checkstays to control mast bend. The keel and inboard rudder are semi-elliptical and the beam is carried well aft to provide downwind stability. It features a full oak and birch cruising interior with an enclosed head forward, galley to port, nav station to starboard and a huge quarterberth. The boat was well built and most have held up well. The hull is easily driven by the Yanmar diesel and cruises at more than 6 knots. It excels in light air upwind and heavy air downwind and will easily sail to its usual PHRF rating of 126 in such conditions. In headsail reaches it is much more difficult to sail to its rating. A fledgling owners association exists and copies of a newsletter are available from Rich Canning. An e-mail owners' mailing list is also active. It is my impression that most owners are happy with the boat.

Cons:

Racer/Cruiser 30' long, fin keel, stand up head room, masthead rig.

Medium displacement, with decent s.a.to displacement ratio.

Excellent upwind, and good downwind. Great in most wind ranges.

Not a good reaching boat.

Very satisfied. Very competitive racer and a geat cruiser for the two of us.

Adding to the other reviews on the boat I have the last Olson911s to come of the Pacific yachts assembly line, 1987. The quality of the fiberglass work is unsurpassed. Other major qualities in the boat; Campanionway open to the deck creating excellent cross ventalation with the forward hatch; Excellent headroom; high freeboard to keep you dry; recessed rails and hiking ramps for the crew; easy access to the engine and stuffing box; Huge open cockpit too; a breeze to winterize; Very solid hull design;easy access to the engine and to stuffing box. Excellent quality solid for racing or cruising.
