S-2 11 35ft Sailboat

Has anyone any experience sailing one of these? They appear to be a well built boat, a little beamy, but what are they like in the water with the wind?
I've found one that I'm thinking of buying...

Re: S-2 11 35ft Sailboat

I too am interested in feed back here. The layout of the CC model has always looked appealing to me. I've seen more 30CC's up for sale over the last 5 years though vs the 35/36.

Is this the aft or center model you are looking at?

Re: S-2 11 35ft Sailboat

As I recall those look nice inside (nice layout and interior). As I recall, the one I saw had a sail drive. Be aware of the "sail drive" parts of the engine, and if you are not, here is some reading on that topic:

Good luck on your boat search!

It's the traditional aft model. I like the boat, but it seems awfully beamy... almost 11 feet on a 36 ft boat... That's my only reservation. I am an old-school sailor and I can't get my head around how such a beamy boat will sail well in choppy water.

That is an interesting point on beam, however, as a point of reference to consider, the Irwin Citation 31 I am waiting to look at has an 11' beam. The Island Packet 31, one of the most successful IPY's, has 11.5' beam. These are both 31 OAL, considerably shorter boats. 11' beam in a 36 does not seem too unreasonable.

In contrast it seems most boats considered to be 'blue water' are narrower than this. Maybe your usage is to be more than just a coastal cruiser?

I don't think that's an over large beam at all. Both the Vancouver 27 and the Rustler 36, acknowledged blue-water boats, have beams more than a third of their length.

11' is beamy on a 36??? We've got 10'5" on a 32, moves great in the chop. Are you looking for beam like a Columbia sabre as the norm?

Well.. the Hunter 38 is a sliver under 13ft so you could almost say the S2-11 is skinny,,

Re: S-2 11 35ft Sailboat

Thanks to all... my Cal 28-II just appears to be less beamy. Obviously an issue of optical illusion...
