Schock Santana 30?
 
I'm looking at a 1979 Schock Santana 30-3. Owner sale and no survey. Anyone have experience with one of these old girls?

Note this boat is different than the current Schock 30.

Thanks!

30-30 didn't come out till '81 so it would be the 1/2 Tonner.

there was a Santana 30 mkI and mkII. Santana 30 +15 then the Santana 30 tall rig and the short rig but never heard of the 30-3. there were a lot of variants, masts with I measurements from 37 to 41 feet.
Good boats, sailed on a lot of new ones back in the day

Beware of 34 year old Volvo engine. In particular, be concerned about rusted cooling passages.

Cored hull possibly, deck is cored for sure. Get a survey as you will not get insurance without one and most marinas require insurance.

The Schock website says the only 30 made in 1979 is the "30" not the 30-30. I've sent the HIN to them for confirmation.

It does have a Volvo diesel, supposedly replaced in 1988. Anyone know if this fresh or salt water cooled?

Any further comments appreciated.

Right.. this will the the IOR influenced 30 by Shad Turner

Pretty typical of the day, smallish cockpit, esp with narrow stern, big headsails and spinnakers, possibly a handful deep downwind with spinnaker in a breeze. This just means 'pick your days'...

What/where is your intended usage?

As to the engine, it could be either.. any model number? From the 80s it could be one of the '2000' series Volvos, not their best moment, from what I've heard. Volvo parts are also known to be uber expensive as a rule.

If you're near/can see the boat if it's FWC it will have a heat exchanger and 2 water pumps, should be fairly obvious once you're there.

This is a fair amount of boat to be buying without a survey. Do you have the experience to give it a good look over and to be sure you're not buying someone else's problems?

I'm experienced enough to give it a quick survey and the risk of problems might be compensated for by the price.

Thanks for pointing out the small cockpit. I had not noticed that and that could be a deal breaker for day sailing. Intended uses are daysailing and Pacific coastal cruising with 2-3 day overnights.
