1. A Sail Area/Displacement Ratio of 18.7 suggests that the Island Packet 380 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 42.9 means that the Island Packet 380 will stand up well to her canvas in a blow, helping her to power through the waves.
3. A Displacement/Length Ratio of 286, tells us the Island Packet 380 is clearly a heavy displacement cruising boat. You can load her down with all your cruising gear and equipment and it will hardly affect her waterline. Not an ideal choice for coastal sailing, but she'll come into her own on an offshore passage in testing conditions.
4. Ted Brewer's Comfort Ratio of 30.6 suggests that crew comfort of an Island Packet 380 in a seaway is similar to what you would associate with the motion of a moderate bluewater cruising boat - a predictable and acceptable motion for most seasoned sailors.
5. The Capsize Screening Formula (CSF) of 1.9 tells us that an Island Packet 380 would be a safer choice of sailboat for an ocean passage than one with a CSF of more than 2.0.
