S2 yachts

I am in process of looking at S2 8.5 and would appreciate input as to strengths, weaknesses, areas of concern and value. Thanks.

Re: S2 yachts

S2 boats generally have a good reputation. You might want to do a search on the forum as they have often been discussed.

If your attitude resembles the south end of a bull heading north, it's time to turn around.

Re: S2 yachts

I would stay away from S2 boats, lots of bad things written on them, lots of core problems... generally low quality boats ( or at least that's the reputation they have )
