Re: Mr. B Buys A Boat- Adventures in Boat Shopping

Have you looked at Schock Santana's? They made 2 30 foot varieties...I have the Santana 30, and there is a Santana 30/30. They are still in business making boats and they sail very well...the 30/30 is a pretty fast boat. The 30 is not as fast...BUT is a very sturdy boat. I bought one for under $7K...NEW Yanmar in it, and I just did the catalina trip in 15-20 foot waves and 25+ MPH winds...stable as a rock and wa making 7 knots in the old girl. My buddy I bought it from only sold it to get a Schock 35, as he wants to do some racing and the extra room works for his family. He used to get from San Pedro to Avalon in like 3 hours in the Santana 30. I have seen many in the $6-10k range that I wished I had jumped on just to flip...great boats.
