Read more about these Key Performance Indicators...
1. A Sail Area/Displacement Ratio of 17.3 suggests that the Newport 28 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 45.7 means that the Newport 28 will stand up well to her canvas in a blow, helping her to power through the waves.
3. A Displacement/Length Ratio of 200, tells us the Newport 28 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 20.9 suggests that crew comfort of a Newport 28 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 of 2.0 tells us that a Newport 28 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.
