2 stroke gas engines are almost dead because of emissions regulations. Evinrude is really the only company still making them for sale in the US. You can't find them in a sailboat because there isn't the market for them so no one makes one.

While it is true that a flooded sump engine has more problems at very large angles of heel, in my opinion that is an appropriate trade off given all of the other advantages.
