Santana 28

Does anybody here have any knowledge on a Santana 28?
I'm looking to buy my first boat and am looking at a 1977 Santana 28 and a 1977 Cal 27-2. I can't seem to find much info on the Santana?
Thanks, Bill

re: Santana 28

I can't say that I have ever sailed one, but it was designed by Shad Turner, who also designed my boat. They look like similar hulls. There were only about 40 of them built. I will say that I am very impressed with the build quality on my boat, and ther is no reason to believe the 28 would be any different!

re: Santana 28

Thanks for the input SchockT I really like the boat but there just isn't much info out there on it. It's nice to hear some input from people familiar with the company/boat

re: Santana 28

Schock is a much underrated boatbuilder AFAIAC. they consistently build nice boats for a decent price and have done so continuously since WW II. They are far from the biggest but perhaps that's how they've weathered the storms that put all or most of the other great names under.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

You must be very excited! I hope the survey goes well!

One of the reasons I chose my Santana was because it was a fairly limited production boat. There are thousands of Catalinas, Cals etc out there, but not so many Santanas>

Just remember, don't be afraid to walk away if the survey digs up something serious! it is easy to get excited about a boat and overlook or downplay something you shouldn't!

Be sure to post more pics if you get the boat. I would like to see what her interior looks like compared to mine!

Re: Santana 28

I have a Santana 30 and its a GREAT boat. Build quality is very good. Very capable and solid boat. The 28 is just a tad bit smaller version. I have heard they are very good in the windy and choppy waters of the SF Bay. If the survey is good, go for it! If not look at a few Santana 30s...Made about 130 of them...Still see them come up for sale regularly...although prices seem to have doubled in the last year...not sure why...

Re: Santana 28

There's an article in the most recent issue of Good Old Boat on a 27

I'm not happy unless I'm complaining about something.
I'm having a very good day!

Looking at photos of the 28 the big difference from the 30 is in the stern quarter and transom. The 28 doesn't have the IOR pinched stern, it is a more traditional shape. This will likely make the 28 a bit better behaved off the wind with following seas. It should be a good sailer.
As for the prices of Santana 30s doubling in price, I hadn't really noticed that. Every one that I see on the market is priced similar to what I paid 9 years ago.

Re: Santana 28

Feeling a bit concerned as to what the bottom condition will be as the owner says he hasn't had the bottom painted in 8 years! Probably hasn't replaced the anodes either? He does have the bottom cleaned monthly for what that's worth?
