1. A Sail Area/Displacement Ratio of 16.5 suggests that the Starlight 3 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 40.2 means that the Starlight 35 will stand up well to her canvas in a blow, helping her to power through the waves.
3. A Displacement/Length Ratio of 266, tells us the Starlight 35 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 25.9 suggests that crew comfort of a Starlight 35 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 (CSF) of 1.9 indicates that a Starlight 35 would be a safer choice of sailboat for an ocean passage than one with a CSF of more than 2.0.
