1. Sail Area/Displacement Ratio: 18.8
2. Ballast/Displacement Ratio: 40.3
3. Displacement/Length Ratio: 197
4. Comfort Ratio: 29.4
5. Capsize Screening Formula: 1.8
1. A Sail Area/Displacement Ratio of 18.8 suggests that the Sweden Yachts 42 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 40.3 means that the Sweden Yachts 42 will stand up well to her canvas in a blow, helping her to power through the waves.
3. A Displacement/Length Ratio of 197, tells us the Sweden Yachts 42 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 29.4 suggests that crew comfort of a Sweden Yachts 42 in a seaway is similar to what you would associate with the motion of an offshore cruiser with good dynamic stability.
5. The Capsize Screening Formula (CSF) of 1.8 indicates that a Sweden Yachts 42 would be a safer choice of sailboat for an ocean passage than one with a CSF of more than 2.0.
