Read more about these Key Performance Indicators...
1. A Sail Area/Displacement Ratio of 20.2 suggests that, in the right hands, the X-332 will have enough performance to leave most other sailboats of similar waterline length well astern.
2. A Ballast/Displacement Ratio of 41.4 means that the X-332 will stand up well to her canvas in a blow, helping her to power through the waves.
3. A Displacement/Length Ratio of 177, tells us the X-332 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 20.6 suggests that crew comfort of a X-332 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 2.0 tells us that a X-332 would not be as good a 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.
