The Schock 35 is an evolution of the Santana 35, with a new bow section, longer waterline and a masthead rig. They rate significantly faster than the old Santana 35, but on deck and in the cockpit are essentially the same boat.
Below decks the new bow allowed a V berth, lacking in the Santana IIRC. Neither has a full-on cruising layout and amenities, but neither are they really stripped out racers.
Probably a decent higher performance coastal cruiser/racer that would do nicely in the summer around here and allow you to be competitive in fleet racing too if you wanted.
You were looking at B 36.7s before, IMO they are a much better boat all around, but the Schock will be a lot less money.
