Re: Buying a S2 9.2C

My wife and I plan on using the S2 to live-aboard and cruise the Caribbean as far south as St Vincent Grenadines. Will this boat be suitable for the voyage?

The simple answer is 'no' on all counts. I know these boats reasonably well, and in my opinion would say that I personally can't imagine too many worse choices for this. These were mediocre sailing boats, with poor motion comfort, not especially robust construction, poor sail handling gear, inappropriate rig proportions for short handed distance cruising, limited storage, and poor carrying capacity. In other words the opposite of what you are looking for.
