Pros:
Cons:

This design of the S2 series of sailboats is the largest that was built. It is available in both a center and an aft cockpit version. My boat is the aft version. The hull is hand laid fiberglass. The interior is built up using Teak plywood and lumber. There is no liner. The inside of the hull is lined with what looks like a thin material similar to carpet.

The boat was built in the Detroit, MI area by a company that started out building power boats. I feel that the boat is built better than most production boats of the era. It is a comfortable boat to sail and can be single handed. Most of the systems are easy to work on compared to other boats.

I have owned a Catalina 22 and a Catalina 30 during the past 15 years. The S2 is a lot easier to work on and to handle. It also has more storage space and more tankage.

The specs are as follows:

36' LOA
28'3" DWL
11'11" Beam
5'''6" or 4'8" Draft
15,000# Displacement
6,000# Ballast
632 sq ft Sail Area
49' mast above the waterline
6'3" interior head room
138 PHRF rating
Hull / Deck = 100% hand-laid fiberglass with Contourkore end grain balsa core
sandwich construction. Horizontal hull / deck joint with rigid crash rubrail.
Skeg rudder. Stainless steel rudder post. Bronze seacocks. Volvo Penta 35HP diesel. 50 gal aluminum fuel tank. 30 gal. holding tank.

Cons:

This is my third S2. Previously owned a 26' and 30', both aft cockpit. These were quality boats built in Holland, MI. The 36' is roomy for her size and comfortable for extended cruising. Extensive use of teak on the interior. Easy access to engine compartment through companionway ladder and quarter berth. Fast boat that handles heavy weather beautifully. Points better than most other boats. Quite spacious cockpit. Deep bilge. Recently installed 16,000 btu A/C with registers at nav station and next to wet locker. Nice size refrigeration. A uniquely styled boat - conventional, yet modern.
