The S2 9.2C...


Over the years as I've sailed, blogged and talked about the Arthur Edmonds  9.2C sailing vessel from S2 Yachts, there have been a number of people contact me wanting to know more about these fine watercraft. This blog is in draft-design is an attempt to provide more info on S2 Yachts – especially the model under my ownership – the S2 9.2C.

Scattered across the web info of the S2 9.2C yachts is tucked in hard to find places. One of my goals here is to bring as much of that info as possible into the page tabs to the upper right of this blog. Know of other pages to add? Please contact me. Like your S2 vessel linked to this page?  Get in touch. If I've inadvertently posted something that is your intellectual property, please let me know and I'll remove it. 
Happy sailing ~ Foster

    1. Gary, Pretty intense story of riding out SS Sandy on your S2 9.2C WINDCHASER. I'll be in contact in hopes you'll allow the story to be shared in this S2 site.

  2. Chief Fanning, I am considering the purchase of an S2 9.2c but I'm perplexed about access to the bilge and the mechanicals, seems pretty challenging. Any insights?

  4. Hello All. I've recently become the new owner of a 1984 S2 9.2C. The boat needs a little cosmetic work, but other than that she seems to be in pretty solid shape. The only issue I'm having is that I don't know anything about marine engines (there is an 18hp yanmar in my S2), and am not convinced I know what I'm doing when I start it up. The boat was winterized and stored in the water over winter. I went out today to start it up, but nothing is labeled, so I was left doing a little guess work. When I finally went to turn the key I was getting a "water press." warning on the display next to the key ignition. I'm not sure what this means, if there is something wrong with a water pump, or if the seacock is still closed? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
