S2 6.8 EXCITER, 1978

  • Columbus, Ohio
  • One of the last hulls of that model.
  • Make and model: S2 6.8 EXCITER

  • Length: 22 ft feels like a much larger boat. Totally flat deck. Very roomy cabin for a boat of this size. We regularly sail with 4 people on board for overnight trips.
  • Beam: 8ft
  • Displacement: 3,000 lbs. Shoal keel 1,100 lbs, Centerboard 100 lbs
  • Draft: 2 ft board up and 46 board down.

  • Type of keel shallow keel/centerboard option. Centerboard removed and pained. New cable and mounting bracket. Fresh bottom paint.
  • 1 Furling genoa, 3 mains, spinnaker, 4 jibs (hank-on).
  • Newly painted Tandem axle EZ Loader 6.0 trailer with L.E.D. lights and drum brakes.
  • 1995 4 stroke Yamaha 9.9 High Torque on a new 4 Garelick 4 stroke bracket and custom reinforcement. 10 AMP charging system.
  • Group 24 battery with 15 watt solar panel and a charge controller on a custom transom post.
  • Fresh water boat sailed mainly on local Ohio lakes but trailed to Lake Erie and sailed to Dry Tortugas.
  • Ideal boat for trailering to far away lakes.
  • Newer VHF linked to Garmin Chart plotter on a swing out mount.
  • 2 anchors, L.E.D cabin lights, L.E.D. anchor and tri color on top of the mast.
  • Shore power. Mosquito nets. Solar vent for bow hatch.
  • Bimini top
  • New MSD with deck pump-out to comply with new regulations.
  • Sail cover.
  • I have a second mast, boom and all standing rigging. I also have several boxes of extra parts.

    Overall the boat is in excellent condition. It has had many upgrades and improvements.

    I do not use it much now and this is why it is for sale. I purchased a glider and I am sailing in the sky now.
