1. Sail Area/Displacement Ratio: 17.6
2. Ballast/Displacement Ratio: 28.9
3. Displacement/Length Ratio: 164
4. Comfort Ratio: 26.9
5. Capsize Screening Formula: 1.9
1. A Sail Area/Displacement Ratio of 17.6 suggests that the Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 49 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 28.9 would usually mean that the Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 49 would have a tendency to heel excessively in a gust, and need to be reefed early to keep her sailing upright in a moderate breeze.
However, as she has much of her ballast concentrated in a bulb at the foot of the keel, she's likely to be considerably stiffer than her published Ballast/Displacement Ratio might suggest.
3. A Displacement/Length Ratio of 164, tells us the Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 49 is clearly a light 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 26.9 suggests that crew comfort of a Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 49 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 tells us that a Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 49 would be a safer choice of sailboat for an ocean passage than one with a CSF of more than 2.0.
