S2/Tiara May Bring S2.9 Back in Production

FYI to those that may have owned this boat or are interested...

Have been following a thread on sailinganarchy regarding Tiara/S2 possibly bringing the 7.9 back into production.

According to the 7.9 class association website this appears to be the case. See link

S2 7.9 Meter Class Association :: View topic - The 7.9 may go back in limited production

I think its great a former sailboat builder now wants to get back into bldg the line.

Good news! I'm a big S2 fan, both because I think they built quality boats and because the company is just a few miles from my home port. I can attest that their current selection of powerboats (Tiara/Pursuit) are top-notch.

Well


Jboats put the J24 back into production and with a boat and trailer getting close to 60k sailaway makes the used boats look a lot better


I would think S2 quality standards would also come in at a high cost

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

It is a great little racer/cruiser. Yes, I would like to see it back in production but find it hard to believe. My source within the company told me the molds were destroyed a little over a year ago! That doesn't mean they are irreplacable, but it will be more costly to start over.
