1. The Sail Area/Displacement Ratio of the Warrior 40 is not known, but word has it that in the right conditions, she'll approach her maximum hull speed readily and satisfy the sailing performance expectations of most cruising sailors.
2. A Ballast/Displacement Ratio of 44.1 means that the Warrior 40 will stand up well to her canvas in a blow, helping her to power through the waves.
3. A Displacement/Length Ratio of 274, tells us the Warrior 40 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 28.3 suggests that crew comfort of a xxxx 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 Warrior 40 would be a safer choice of sailboat for an ocean passage than one with a CSF of more than 2.0.
