1982 S2 8.5

19 October, 2012 by EVAN

About this Sailboat:

Boat just went through hurricane Isaac. No hull damage, but the genoa halyard broke, and the Genny flogged itself to death. Knocked the radar off it’s mount, and took out one spreader light. I’ve had the main repaired, but she needs a new furling genoa, plus a trip up the mast.
I need this boat gone, so am offering her at a steal. Anyone familiar with S2’s know their reputation. I’ve dropped the price by $5,500. You do the math. Price is firm.
Well maintained example of a 1982 S28.5. Inboard diesel 11hp. Wheel steering. Fresh bottom paint. Roller furling genoa, battened main with reef points.
This boat is a joy to sail, easy to singlehand, points well, and better performance than most boats of similar size. She performs well in light airs, and can handle a real blow with a reef in the main. She’s been in freshwater since I’ve owned her since 2006. The boat can sleep four. When I rebuilt the interior, I wanted a more open floor plan and functional overnight interior. Two of the winches could use a rebuild, and two of the cabin windows have crazed pretty bad, but it is just cosmetic.
Previous owner sailed this boat all over the gulf and down into Mexico for several years. Only reason he upgraded was to get more room. I am selling because I have another boat and cannot afford to campaign two at once, so I am pricing it to move!

Equipment on Board:

VHF radio. New CD player new cockpit and cabin speakers with IPOD hookup. Fresh bottom paint. Roller furling genoa, battened main with reef points. New headliner. New lights throughout (all LED with keychain remote dimmers). All new wiring in mast, new spreader lights, new masthead, anchor and steaming LED lights. Freshwater pump plumbed to sink and vanity in head. New head with pump out. Alcohol stove. Built in ice chest, with drain. Shore power A.C. Engine runs strong, starts right up.
