1. A Sail Area/Displacement Ratio of just 11.2 suggests that the Hallberg-Rassy 94 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 34.6 means and she'll need to be reefed early to keep her sailing upright in a moderate breeze.
3. A Displacement/Length Ratio of 231, tells us the Hallberg-Rassy 94 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 26.2 suggests that crew comfort of a Hallberg-Rassy 94 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 1.9 tells us that a Hallberg-Rassy 94 would be a safer choice of sailboat for an ocean passage than one with a CSF of more than 2.0.
