Have an S2 7.3, have sailed a number of other sized S2, I think their great, all have great Bal/disp ratios, inherantly stable, fast and well built. Get a survey, good luck

OK. Nevermind.

S2, 1980, on the hard -- These are tags that describe a boat down here that a friend of mine is selling. He got it as part of a trade-in on a much larger project-boat that he'd been working on (read: not sailing) for years.

When he got the S2 -- which was turn-key -- he was out sailing several times a week, usually solo. He said it was responsive and easily handled alone. I don't know much about the boat (a good survey is a must), but I do know that he enjoyed the hell out of it and is only selling it because he found a bigger boat.

Good luck.
