Very satisfied. Race it weekly using dacron sails (some original). Good looking inside and out. Nice teak in cabin. Now doing some bottom work to replace the gelcoat.

Pros:
Cons:

Fin keel (5' draft), sloop rigged (offshore spar), 10.5 beam, Yanmar 16HP, outstanding interior layout. Exceptional quality construction (beyond just great glasswork) - look at how the deck is bonded to the hull, look at the backing plates under cleats, stantions, stays, etc., interior work is excellent...compare details to Catalina or Hunter and you will be impressed with the S2. Weaknesses: difficult to access the bilge (deep into keel and under engine), rather have the optional Yanmar 27HP when beating into the wind under power. I have had this boat for six years and have NEVER been in another 30 footer that I would trade her for.

Pros:
Cons:


I've had this boat for 6 years and I find that this boat is a very strong boat and sails comfortably. It seems to be initially tender, but stiffens up nicely. The rigging is strong with 1/4 inch stays and shrouds and 1/2 inch clevis pins. We have a lot of Catalina 30's in our marina and we don't have much of a problem leaving them behind with main and jib flying. The boat has a very nice teak interior with cabinets and storage enough to please my wife. The head in comparison to the Catalina's is larger according to the Catalina owner's. Overall you can probably tell that I am very satisfied with the boat and would recommend it's purchase if you can find one that's in good shape. Most seemed to have a problem with blisters at one time or another, when I was looking. It's to bad they are no longer in production.

Pros:
Cons:

Recent complete epoxy bottom. Great to sail and interior plan accomodates family of four very nicely. Wood trim above and below decks is beautiful. My boat has an OMC sail drive
15 hp gas engine which could be under powered in weather.

Pros:
Cons:

We have owned the boat for twelve seasons. We sail in the Long Island Sound, Great South Bay and in Waters up to Nantucket. She is equipped with a Volvo MD-7A, the engine in very dependable but she is a shaker. We may try switching to a fixed 3 blade from a fixed 2 blade this season. We put a new customized rudder on her this year. The surface area is about 25% more than the original. This stiffened the boat in higher winds and has created greater lift in light air. Overall we think that she is a safe and very well built boat. We have had her out with spreader height seas and 35 knot winds with great results.She has no gelcoat crazing, stress cracks or typical conditions found on a 21 tear old boat. In fact she looks better than many built in the 90's. Of course I highly recommend the boat.

Pros:
Cons:

I brought Corvina at an insurance auction after she had sunk in 2001. Since then while retoring her several things have impressed me. But less start with the negative (short List)

Negative:
She has thousands of small blisters on her bottom. (Now she is scheduled to be epoxyed this winter and the fiberglass core is dry.)

I can always find the oil dip stick but can never find the right place to put it back in because it is on the "wrong" side of the engine and I can't see the hole.

Positive:
Great engine access. You can see most of the engine (except for the dip stick) and every important piece of equipment is accessible. Although she is a bit under powered the 13 Hp Yanmar pushes her along at close to 6 knots.

Corvina handles great. The rudder has great balance and she is fairly stiff and dry.

Comfort is very good in this boat. Good head room a fair bit of storage and when the table is put away the main saloon is very spacious. If the wether gets rough there are hand hold to grab but so far we have not needed them. The galley is CNG and heats nicely although there is only one place in the area that sells CNG.

Overall Corvina is a well designed and engineered boat. I would recommend this class of vessel to anyone.

Pros: Turns on a dime, mega headroom, genoa is fast
Cons: no overhead handholds, no bow sprit, no oven

This boat sails FAST. My main roller furler is damaged so I've only used the geno and have gotten her up to 8 knots. I'm impressed.

Pros: solid hull no matter the age, timeless design, high quality
Cons: high used prices

Unquestionably the finest racer/cruiser of its price. I am surprised to see some of the reviews talk about blisters because I have never talked with someone who had blisters on the 9.2 -- it has a solid fiberglass hull. Even at 27 years old, there are no gelcoat cracks (what manufacturer compares with this?) In addition, it is solid in any weather conditions.
