Blackbird is a well-equipped, carefully maintained (super clean) S2 8.5A sloop. All pictures were taken this year. S2s are known for their modern designs, well-appointed interiors, and high-quality fit and finish. The 8.5 is a great example - fast and forgiving, it is a very capable boat for extended cruising and competitive club racing.
This is a dry boat with no soft spots or structural issues and I’ve made a significant number of improvements over the past few years including: new mainsail and reconditioned roller-furling headsail, new Electro Scan waste treatment system and all hoses (no smelly holding tank), new fuel tank, bottom blasted to gelcoat with barrier coat and new ablative antifouling, new batteries, and much more. She features the upgraded 15 HP, 2-cylinder Yanmar diesel (2QM15). Hours are unknown, but it starts and runs smoothly.
Slip and winter storage fees are paid through March 2020 covering haul out, land storage, and Spring launch ($950 value).
