Re: Schock Santana 30?

I'll resurrect an sold thread…I have a Santana 30 and LOVE it as well. Its got a great combo of utility, performance and ease of use. I looked at getting a newer boat a few years ago, but at the end of the day, I decided it wouldn't be a huge difference to sail as far as enjoyment. Doing lots of upgrades and modernizing it now with new electronics and keeping it looking good.

I love mine. Love her, love her, love her. 1977. So many problems but was real cheap. Every sail has been epic, The old diesel is worn out but is actually running well now. This is so much boat for me . On a steep learning curve, had an O'day 20 and a Pearson Arial ( 26') then a 20 year hiatus , then back into the thick of it with this old Santana 30. would love to hear from others with the same boat.

Is this the boat on ebay? Its just a Santana 30. Not the cool 30-30. Looks like lots of boat for the money though.

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.

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.

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

Any further comments appreciated.

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

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

Good boats, sailed on a lot of new ones back in the day
