1. A Sail Area/Displacement Ratio of just 19.5 suggests that the Albin Nova will need a stiff breeze to get her going. In light conditions, unless you've got plenty of time on your hands, motor-sailing may be the way to go.
2. A Ballast/Displacement Ratio of 47.3 means that the Albin Nova will stand up well to her canvas in a blow, helping her to power through the waves.
3. A Displacement/Length Ratio of 202, tells us the Albin Nova is a moderate displacement cruiser, which means she'll carry all your cruising gear without it having a dramatic effect on her performance. Most of today's sailboats intended for offshore cruising fall into this displacement category.
4. Ted Brewer's Comfort Ratio of 20.0 suggests that crew comfort of a Albin Nova in a seaway is similar to what you would associate with the motion of a coastal cruiser with moderate stability, which is not encouraging news for anyone prone to seasickness.
5. The Capsize Screening Formula (CSF) of 2.0 is on the cusp of suitability for an ocean passage, so venture offshore with caution.
