Re: Sovereign 28

Difficult to get a CC and good looks in a 28 foot length.. even considering it's been 'stretched' a bit from the original S2 8.0 (meters ~ 26 feet). The layout, however, looks pretty good for a cozy couple and the fit and finish on the ones available online look reasonably good. Longish keel but S2 designs generally had a decent rep. Not sure if G&S did all their boats, but they did the racing hulls and they go very well.

Regarding the BMW I think they are pretty good engines, but rare as hens teeth in
N.A. and perhaps for that reason difficult to find service and/or parts.
