1. Sail Area/Displacement Ratio: 19.6
2. Ballast/Displacement Ratio: 47.1
3. Displacement/Length Ratio: 213
4. Comfort Ratio: 27.3
5. Capsize Screening Formula: 1.9
1. A Sail Area/Displacement Ratio of 19.6 suggests that the C&C 44 will, in the right conditions, approach her maximum hull speed readily and satisfy the sailing performance expectations of most cruising sailors.
2. A Ballast/Displacement Ratio of 47.1 means that the C&C 44 will stand up well to her canvas in a blow, helping her to power through the waves.
3. A Displacement/Length Ratio of 213 tells us the C&C 44 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 27.3 suggests that crew comfort of a C&C 44 in a seaway is similar to what you would associate with the motion of a coastal cruiser with moderate stability, which is not the best of news for anyone prone to seasickness.
5. The Capsize Screening Formula (CSF) of 1.9 indicates that a C&C 44 would be a safer choice of sailboat for an ocean passage than one with a CSF of more than 2.0.
