1. A Sail Area/Displacement Ratio of 21.3 suggests that, in the right hands, the Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 32-1 will have enough performance to leave most other sailboats of similar waterline length well astern.
2. A Ballast/Displacement Ratio of 30.0 would usually mean that the Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 32-1 would have a tendency to heel uncomfortably in a gust, and need to be reefed early to keep her sailing upright in a moderate breeze.
However, as she has much of her ballast concentrated in a bulb at the foot of her keel, she's likely to be considerably stiffer than her published Ballast/Displacement Ratio might suggest.
3. A Displacement/Length Ratio of 192, tells us the Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 32-1 is a light-to-moderate displacement sailboat. If she's loaded with too much heavy cruising gear her performance will suffer to a degree.
4. Ted Brewer's Comfort Ratio of 18.5 suggests that the Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 32-1 will have the motion underway to that of a lightweight racing boat. Crew comfort will often be memorable for all the wrong reasons. Upwind in lively conditions the Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 32-1 will slam enough to shake your fillings out with a motion that most cruising sailors have no desire to get used to.
5. The Capsize Screening Formula of 2.2 tells us that a Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 32-1 would not be as good a choice of sailboat for ocean passage-making, owing to the increased risk of capsize in strong winds and heavy seas when compared to a sailboat with a CSF of less than 2.0.
