1. Sail Area/Displacement Ratio: 18.2
2. Ballast/Displacement Ratio: 42.5
3. Displacement/Length Ratio: 205
4. Comfort Ratio: 23.4
5. Capsize Screening Formula: 2.1
1. A Sail Area/Displacement Ratio of 18.2 suggests that the Jeanneau Sun Legende 41 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 42.5 means that the Jeanneau Sun Legende 41 will stand up well to her canvas in a blow, helping her to power through the waves.
3. A Displacement/Length Ratio of 205, tells us the Jeanneau Sun Legende 41 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 23.4 suggests that crew comfort of a Jeanneau Sun Legende 41 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 2.1 tells us that a Jeanneau Sun Legende 41 would not be a good 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.
