1977 Santana 20

  • The Santana 20 was designed by Shad Turner and is built by W.D Schock Corp. It is very easy to sail and less physically demanding than the newer "sport boats" like the Vipers and Melges. The boat is the perfect family day racer -- just go out and have fun. Strict adherence to one-design specifications and ease of trailering make the Santana 20 ideal for class racing. A very active class association has developed with fleets throughout the United States.

  • LWL 16'
  • Beam 8'

  • Displacement 1,350 lbs.
  • Ballast 550 lbs.
  • Sail Area 185 sq. ft..

    The boat has been dry sailed for the last 14 years on Dallas-area lakes, Canyon Lake and Lake Travis. This is a great sailing boat with a fast gelcoat hull -- no bottom paint. Almost all of the running rigging, including blocks, traveler and cleats were replaced this year and the layout upgraded to the latest recommendations. At the same time I removed and rebedded hardware and deck fittings. Mast step has been upgraded.

    The boat has keel plates for hoisting via a crane, it was crane launched for a good part of itís life and is now trailer launched. Included is a good, roadworthy trailer that makes launching quick and easy using a strap and front wheel setup. Trailer tires are about 5 years old with perhaps 400 miles on them.

    The interior paint is flaking, a common issue on Santana 20s. I have not scraped and repainted it yet.

    Sails include a nearly-new spinnaker (two regattas), with turtle bag and companionway launch bag; a nice main; an older back-up main with reefing points for heavy air, a jib and a 135 that I got this year. I like the 135 over a 150 as I sail with a light crew of two or three and find it is easier to keep the boat flat and moving, instead of being overpowered and heeling. I race with these sails and have done well with them this summer at our club in PHRF.

    It is ready to go and needs nothing. This past month I bought another boat to race one design at our club and will be concentrating on it for awhile, so I decided to sell this one.
