S2 7.3 for Sail

Excellent boat for coastal cruising, day sailing and racing!

S2 Yachts has a great reputation for making solid, safe and fast sailboats. The 7.3 is a 24-foot "cruising" model with a large cockpit, numerous big-boat features and a comfortable cabin that sleeps four.

"Sweet Freedom" is a well-engineered boat with a roller-furling jib and all lines led aft into the cockpit, making it easy for one or two people to handle. She has a deep keel (with a four-foot draft) that makes her very stable even in strong winds and large waves, and enables her to sail upwind fast.

This boat is fully-loaded with everything you need for coastal cruising, including:

∑ Fully-battened mainsail with jiffy reefing
∑ Roller-furling genoa
∑ Asymmetrical cruising spinnaker and whisker pole
∑ An extra mainsail and genoa
∑ A spinnaker halyard and all running rigging
∑ Cockpit cushions, bimini and dodger
∑ Dock lines and fenders
∑ Anchor, anchor line and a swim ladder
∑ Life jackets, horseshoe buoy and throwable cushions
∑ Flares, horn and all safety equipment
∑ A two-battery electrical system with:
∑ VHF, AM/FM cassette
∑ Cabin lights and running lights
∑ Ventilation fans
∑ A small head with a holding tank
∑ A small galley with a hand-pump sink, 15-gallon water tank and alcohol stove
∑ A 9.9-hp outboard engine with electric start

Sweet Freedom also has a heavy-duty, custom trailer (valued at about $2,000) with tandem axles and very good tires that tows well. The trailer has a slippery plastic board under the keel, along with pivoting roller arms (see pic), that allows the boat to eaily slide off the trailer. The trailer does not have an extension, but I have launched it numerous times on standard boat ramps with a two-wheel drive pick-up.

Also included in the price is an 8-foot hard-shell dinghy that is almost new, and is a joy to row or tow behind the boat.

Sweet Freedom was sailed exclusively in freshwater until this year, when I moved her Oriental, NC, the Sailing Capital of the Carolinas.

Like most older boats, Sweet Freedom needs a few minor repairs, such as fiberglass and wood-work touch-up, and will soon need a few upgrades, such as a new outboard engine. (That's why I have listed her much lower than her $8,000 value!)

I have owned Sweet Freedom for nine years, and enjoyed every minute. I am only selling her because I have recently started a business that I need to focus my attention on.

Price reduced from $10,000 to $6,900!
