Re: Santana 30 or a 30-30
I think the 30-30 is a more 'fun boat'.. but if you're cruising you should probably get on board an example of each and see which interior you like better.
I like the way the 30-30 sails, it's a cleaner, newer non IOR influenced design. Pretty nice cockpit; the interior seemed a bit tight but we're used to bigger boats. I've not been on the older 30. It will have a smaller cockpit so if daysailing is the priority over weekending that might be something to consider.
