The S2 9.2C is a center cockpit sloop rig, fin keel and space rudder. Standard engine was Yanmar. Her hull is hand laid and her deck balsa-core. She had ten opening ports, 6 berths including aft stateroom, head with shower, teak bulkheads and trim and 6’2" headroom. Her mast height above DWL is 43’6".
Performance design co-exists with human dynamics in a swift, responsive 30-footer with the privacy of a separate aft cabin. Performance features combine with the forgiving sailing characteristics for cruising. In a proven wide beam hull integrated keel and skef rudder for balanced helm, superb tracking, and excellent control. Carefully calculated with the weight and stability to stay dry and comfortable in heavy seas. Yet close-winded and quick to accelerate in light air. An easy to handle moderate aspect ratio rig with large mainsail for good performance on and off the wind. All control lines lead aft to the superb pilot vantage point of a roomy self-bailing center cockpit with contoured seating engineered for comfort. Crisp non-skid deck surfaces, teak cabin-top handrails, and double stainless steel bow pulpit and stern rail contribute to the mobility made possible by wide walkways. Streamlined engineering is also discovered in such features as a molded-in forward anchor locker flush with the deck.
Center cockpit design allows distribution of interior volume into sleeping spaces for six, including a sociable main cabin convertible lounge drop-leaf dinette table, forward V-berth, and private aft stateroom with double berth, hanging locker and 3 door cabinets. Complete galley situated away from main entry traffic. Fully private stand-up head with molded-in tub/shower. Beautifully practical teak bulkheads and trim, finely crafted cabinets and magazine racks enhance the main salon. A complete navigation table is cleverly engineered into the passageway between the salon and aft stateroom. Additional storage is integrated behind backrests and under berths. Warm comfort and functional detail is obvious in a bright, open environment made possible by four large main cabin windows.
