Schock 25 sailboat

https://portland.craigslist.org/mlt/...019055409.html

I'm looking at this Schock 25 sailboat for sale in Portland, Oregon.

I cannot find much on this boat.

Schock also has made a bunch of Harbor 25 sailboats... which is what always shows up in Google searches. But the Harbor 25s are very different boats from the Schock 25s.

So... does anyone have any experience with the Schock 25 sailboats?

Here's the info on sailboatdata.com: https://sailboatdata.com/sailboat/schock-25

Thanks!!

Re: Schock 25 sailboat

Have you actually seen the boat? 1962 is a LONG time ago. It could be REALLY tired. The photograph is obviously old if the ad says it needs work to be sailable. You may need to work for a long time to get it off the trailer and into the water. Does it need new sails too? What is the setup for a slip or mooring? Would a heavy (1000kg) daysailer like this need a motor to get in and out of your harbor? It looks a lot like a big Ensign. (Not a fast boat, but sturdy, commodious and enjoyable.) It weighs as much as a Soling.(Quite a fast boat, but 2’ longer.) The ballast/displacement ratio so close to 50% would indicate a stiff boat in any case. Schock has a reputation for quick boats, but they were not all designed by the same people, so this one...? Good luck finding someone who’s sailed them to tell you more.

Re: Schock 25 sailboat

I sailed them when i was a kid. When they were new they were a old school design but with a knotched full keel. a lot of excitement in Newport Beach when it came out but did not sell all that well because it was a dog to put it mildly. heavy and lots of weather helm over 12 kts of wind. in the bay it sailed ok but in the ocean waves it was not good. was not long after the Soling and Ensign came out and that ended the 25 sales. need a crane to launch. trailer was not designed for ramp launch. does have an outboard well and we used a seagull that would never start so we sailed it in most of the time.

Thanks for your impressions of the Schock 25. I appreciate your perspective.

I would have thought that these would have been very nice sailing boats. You mentioned "heavy." I wouldn't have thought so since the displacement was only 2200 lbs... that's not much for a 25 foot boat. I'm not arguing here with you... just an observation.

The funky trailers and the need to crane launch looked to be major obstacles for me. Thanks for the comments about those issues.

I'll be passing on this one.

Re: Schock 25 sailboat

I saw that boat on Craigslist too. It looks like it was ridden hard and put away wet so the “bring your hammer” quote applies.

Nice looking boat though but tough to launch for sure

Are you in the Pacific northwest?

I'm considering taking a closer look at this boat. For some reason....

Yes, I am in Vancouver. Wa. This boat would be a great winters project and not many around. She has beautiful lines like the Soling.
