Dear S2 Owner: All of us at S2 Yachts join me in telling you how pleased we are that you one of our products as YOUR boat. Your S2 has been designed, engineered and build with care and precision, as you undoubtedly noticed when you were making your purchase decision.

Please let me include this personal notation. When I started this Company, I set as my goal "to provide you, the customer, the finest quality yacht available." Everything we have accomplished since that time has been with that goal in mind.

Thank you for selecting an S2 Yacht. We all wish you many, many happy hours of sailing.

Very truly yours,

S2 Yachts Incorporated
