I don't think the Santana would be a good towable boat. The keel is way to deep. Also beaching is near impossible.

It sounds like a 20's swing keep boat would be what you are looking for. Easy to trailer and could still be beached. Anything bigger would take a good sized vehicle. Anything smaller and you would be cramped for room.
always in decline-never hitting bottom
