1988 Schock 35 Sailboat For Sale in San Diego

Race Ready

Minx is well respected on the local circuit

Recent surveys available - Minx has been well restored


If you want to move up to race one design then we have the boat for you. Minx, a 1988 Schock 35, is on the market after a significant restoration project.

To compete credibly in the very active Southern California 35 Schock fleet, she needs a crew of 9 or 10. You will enjoy the San Diego racing community and will have fun racing against the J-35’s in the  Wednesday beer can series.

The crew can board easily through her open transom and easily navigate the open deck plan to the rail and easily cross over when tacking due to her low coach roof. If longer races are in your future, a small galley, marine head, and 4 berths will keep crew comfortable when not on watch.

The Project

Then, by Barry van Ess:


The boat had  run aground off the Hotel Del Coronado in 2008, sat rolling around in the shallows for a few days, been salvaged in Chula Vista and and trucked to the yard in LA.
I bought the Schock 35 since I'd been racing these boats for a while. She was trucked back to the same yard in Chula Vista. There I worked  on the boat for a while then moved to a yard in Oceanside (closer to where I live and more convenient)
The boat was a wreck! The rudder and keel were ripped out, there were big holes in the sides, the engine was completely waterlogged and there was sand in every nook and cranny of the boat. The instruments and electronics were shot, the standing rigging collapsed. 7 years of reconstruction and she was back in the racing circuit, purchased by current ownership in 2015.

Current ownership, Minx Racing LLC - 

In 2017 Minx was hit broadside to port during a race, all repairs completed by Driscoll Boatyard here in San Diego.


November 2019 rigging survey finds the rig in overall good condition!

Manufacturer Provided Description

The concept of this design was to avoid the contorted and distorted shapes dictated by designing to a particular rule, and to produce a fast "top end" boat. The Schock 35 has a very smooth hull shape and a narrow bow section with a 17 1-2 degree entry angle for good penetrating power in a chop. 4500 pounds of ballast give the boat excellent stability, and the deep high aspect ratio fin keel keeps the weight as low as possible. The leading edge angles aft for good control and easy shedding of kelp. The ballast-to-displacement ratio is kept high for stiffness whereas the displacement-to-length ratio is very low. The rig of the Schock 35 is designed to optimize upwind performance with a very high aspect fore triangle and off-the-wind performance with its huge main and spinnakers. Construction utilizes unidirectional E-glass and features a cored hull and deck, full length toe rails, hiking ramps, extra large windows, deck prisms, and Lexan forward hatches. The deck layout is derived from other successful large Schock models. It is highlighted by a 12-foot long cockpit with the primaries and secondaries at waist level for ease of tailing and winching. All hardware is top quality. The interior layout of the Schock 35 was designed to minimize weight and to concentrate the heaviest components down low over the keel. The interior plan is unobstructed and ideal for both racing and cruising. Twelve feet of beam and over six feet of headroom have given Schock a lot to work with. Teak bulkheads and trim are placed on an off-white liner, and a varnished teak and holly sole runs the length of the cabin. The hull in the main cabin and quarter berth areas is covered with foam-backed fabric to provide sound and heat insulation. The galley of the Schock 35 is placed to port and is equipped with an ice box, a deep stainless sink, and an optional two burner stove and oven. The ice box is covered with a minimum of 2 1-2 inches of insulation. An enclosed storage locker is placed outboard for easy access to galley provisions. The counters are covered with white Formica. Directly opposite the galley is a generous chart table with storage compartments, a hinged lid, and a shelf. The table faces fore and aft, with the navigator seated on a built in bench seat - raised winch platforms give him plenty of headroom. There are four large settee berths in the main cabin and two quarter berths aft. Cut-outs in the berth structure provide easy access to storage compartments and to the fuel and water tanks.
