1. A Sail Area/Displacement Ratio of just 15.1 suggests that the Southerly 110 will need a stiff breeze to get her going. In light conditions, unless you've got plenty of time on your hands, motor-sailing may be the way to go.
2. A Ballast/Displacement Ratio of 46.6 means that the Southerly 110 will stand up well to her canvas in a blow, helping her to power through the waves.
3. A Displacement/Length Ratio of 248, tells us the Southerly 110 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 28.2 suggests that crew comfort of a Southerly 110 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
5. The Capsize Screening Formula (CSF) of 1.9 indicates that a Southerly 110 would be a safer choice of sailboat for an ocean passage than one with a CSF of more than 2.0.
