Read more about these Key Performance Indicators...
1. A Sail Area/Displacement Ratio of 20.0 suggests that the MG 335 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 42.7 means that the MG 335 will stand up well to her canvas in a blow, helping her to power through the waves.
3. A Displacement/Length Ratio of 188, tells us the MG 335 is clearly a light 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 18.4 suggests that the MG 335 will have the motion underway to that of a lightweight racing boat. Crew comfort will often be memorable for all the wrong reasons. Beating upwind in lively conditions the xxxxx 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 MG 335 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.
