Camper & Nicholson’s boats are famous for their Antique and Classic, Motor Yachts, Sloop, Antique and Classic and Cruisers. This vessel has a very deep draft and exceptionally wide beam, characteristics that make it appropriate for overnight cruising, day cruising, sailing, and watersports.
The owner has been sailing for over 50 years and has exceptional knowledge of the vessel dynamics. He has replaced all rigging (it looks used but not worn. Little upgrades in the cabin make for cruising comfort and plenty of room to sleep a minimum of 4.
The C&N brand has a 200-year history of building quality sailing vessels and yachts, a testimony to the condition of this boat. Well kept and FAST on the water, a true classic sailing vessel with many miles to go.
The boat is unique in that it is a 7/8 rig featuring Selden (Proctor) mast with a double spreader rig P/S, boom, and spinnaker pole. The P/S mast stays are Navitec Rod rigging (uppers are 5mm, lower diamond 3.5 mm, and lowers 5.6 mm, headstay 5MM rod, backstay 4 mm 1 x 19 Running backstays and check stays are Spectra with T-ball tangs and safety straps. Lifelines are stainless with Pelican hooks at boarding positions P/S.
The sail inventory includes one North 150% lite genoa, a North 135% lite genoa, a 2nd North genoa, a Kerr Sails 115% jib, a North Triradial spinnaker, and a new Precision 4 batten main.
The theoretical maximum speed that a displacement hull can move efficiently through the water is determined by it's waterline length and displacement. It may be unable to reach this speed if the boat is underpowered or heavily loaded, though it may exceed this speed given enough power. Read more.
Classic hull speed formula:
Hull Speed = 1.34 x √LWLA more accurate formula devised by Dave Gerr in The Propeller Handbook replaces the Speed/Length ratio constant of 1.34 with a calculation based on the Displacement/Length ratio.
Max Speed/Length ratio = 8.26 ÷ Displacement/Length ratio.311
Hull Speed = Max Speed/Length ratio x √LWL
A measure of the power of the sails relative to the weight of the boat. The higher the number, the higher the performance, but the harder the boat will be to handle. This ratio is a "non-dimensional" value that facilitates comparisons between boats of different types and sizes. Read more.
SA/D = SA ÷ (D ÷ 64)2/3
A measure of the stability of a boat's hull that suggests how well a monohull will stand up to its sails. The ballast displacement ratio indicates how much of the weight of a boat is placed for maximum stability against capsizing and is an indicator of stiffness and resistance to capsize.
Ballast / Displacement * 100
A measure of the weight of the boat relative to it's length at the waterline. The higher a boat’s D/L ratio, the more easily it will carry a load and the more comfortable its motion will be. The lower a boat's ratio is, the less power it takes to drive the boat to its nominal hull speed or beyond. Read more.
D/L = (D ÷ 2240) ÷ (0.01 x LWL)³
This ratio assess how quickly and abruptly a boat’s hull reacts to waves in a significant seaway, these being the elements of a boat’s motion most likely to cause seasickness. Read more.
Comfort ratio = D ÷ (.65 x (.7 LWL + .3 LOA) x Beam1.33)
This formula attempts to indicate whether a given boat might be too wide and light to readily right itself after being overturned in extreme conditions. Read more.
CSV = Beam ÷ ³√(D / 64)
