1. Sail Area/Displacement Ratio: 16.5
2. Ballast/Displacement Ratio: 38.0
3. Displacement/Length Ratio: 264
4. Comfort Ratio: 31.6
5. Capsize Screening Formula: 1.8
1. A Sail Area/Displacement Ratio of 16.5 suggests that the Malo 40 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 38.0 means that a sailboat like the Malo 40 (which doesn't have a stiffness-enhancing bulb keel), is likely to benefit from being reefed early to keep her sailing upright in a moderate breeze.
3. A Displacement/Length Ratio of 264, tells us the Malo 40 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 31.6 suggests that crew comfort of a Malo 40 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 1.8 indicates that a Malo 40 would be a safer choice of sailboat for an ocean passage than one with a CSF of more than 2.0.
