Comparison of recent 38ft monohull cruisers with a minimum draft that must not exceed 1,5 m. The goal is to sail close to the shore in shoal waters. We also look for a good trade-off between comfort and sail power.
Here we look for a solid boat to sail between icebergs. The search criteria are : - Aluminum or steel construction - More than 10m (33ft) long - Lowest draft and in any case under 2m (6.56 ft) - Highest comfort at sea - Highest sailing power - Highest fuel and water autonomy
Comparison of mid-size cruisers to cross oceans. The criteria are: - A monohull which length is about 13m - Displacement greater than 8 tons - Built after 1990 - A tradeoff between comfort at sea, sailing power and capsize recovery
Here we compare classic long keel sailboats under 41 ft. The comparison criteria are : - Must have been built at more than 50 units - Production started before 1980 - Length less than 41 ft -The lowest capsize screening factor that should never exceed 2 - Best tradeoff on other performance ratios.
Comparison of big catamarans with a good autonomy for cruising with friends and families. The criteria are: - Length greater than 40 ft - Lowest draft - Highest sail power and hull speed - Highest autonomy (fuel and water)
