“A Genuine Offering of Comfort and Speed.”
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 at an exceptional price.
The Schock 35 has a very smooth hull shape and a narrow bow section with an 17.5 degree entry angle for good penetration 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 for planing capability. The rig of the Schock 35 features a tall bendy section and is designed to optimize upwind performance with a very high aspect foretriangle 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 proven and derived from other successful large Schock models. It is highlighted by a voluminous 12-foot long cockpit with the primaries and secondaries at waist level for ease of tailing and winching functions. All hardware is top quality.
The interior layout of the Schock 35 was clearly designed to minimize weight and to concentrate the heaviest components down low over the keel. This has not been done, however, at the expense of comfort and style. Efforts to offer good cruising accommodations in a race-conscious interior have resulted in a wonderfully unobstructed interior plan ideal for both racing and cruising. Twelve feet of beam and over six feet of headroom have given Schock a lot to work with.
Beautiful teak bulkheads and trim are placed on an attractive 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 and to add a very attractive finishing touch. The galley of the Schock 35 is place to port and is equipped with and ice box, a deep stainless sink, and an optional tow burner stove and oven. The ice box is covered with a minimum of 2 ½ inches of insulation, and an enclosed storage locker is placed outboard for easy access to galley provisions. The counters are covered with attractive white formica which blends beautifully with the white of the hull liner and provides an excellent working surface.
Directly opposite the galley is a generous chart table with an hinged lid, a shelf, and storage compartments. The table faces fore and aft, with the navigator comfortably 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.
Since the uses of a boat of this style are so varied, Schock offers the buyer the opportunity to “design” the forepeak. The economically minded racer might choose to leave it empty, keeping this forward section light and free for sail storage. The cruising sailor can add a beautifully equipped enclosed head, and hanging locker, and a vee-berth to provide an excellent forward stateroom.
Careful attention has been given to every detail of this design. The hull shape is exceptional… The deck layout is ideal… And the interior is appealing. The Schock 35 is a beautiful boat with an fantastic future.
