S2 built 128 of its popular 9.1 between 1983 and 1987. Prices today vary widely with condition, but average $28,000. The first seven boats came with shorter rigs that led owners to complain the boat was underpowered. S2 responded by providing subsequent boats with a taller rig, which is now the class standard. The S2 9.1 performs best in medium air. You’ll need up to eight crew to race with a spinnaker.

Some boats require structural repairs at the mast step or on the floor, which could cost as much as $4,000. One successful racer from Seattle says that his S2 9.1 tall-rig boat is a good all-rounder in medium air, best upwind at the upper end of a No. 1, and can sail well going deep on a downwind leg. Racing sails for these G&S; Design Group boats will cost up to $8,500.
