S2 9.2

A roomy, well-built middle-of-the-road cruiser with both aft and center cockpit versions.

The S2 9.2 is not a fast boat by contemporary standards. In most areas, the 9.2 carries a PHRF rating of 180 seconds per mile (six seconds slower for the shoal-keel), which is six seconds per mile slower than a Pearson 30 and 12 to 15 seconds slower than the popular Catalina 30 with a tall rig.
