The Santana 30 and 30/30 are different boats from different designers - the 30 was done by Shad Turner, the 30/30 by the Nelson/Marek team. The S30, as mentioned above is a IOR influenced design, whereas the 30/30 is a mid 80s design that got away from that era and is likely more a MORC based design if anything.
The Santana 35 (Shad Turner) and the Schock 35 are partially the same boat. The deck molds are the same, but they differ in bow sections and the rig. The waterline was pulled forward and the bow more plumb in the Schock 35 (allowing more of a V berth) and the fractional rig of the Santana was replaced with a masthead rig. The Schock 35 rates considerably faster and until recently commanded a much higher price. Probably still does but the base line has dropped in the past few years, so most used boats are costing less.
As far as I know there's no 'Schock 30', but the original Santana 30 may well be referred to as such now and then.
