30’ sailboat at point bay marina (Charlotte, VT) on lake Champlain. The boat is 29.79’ L.O.A sailboat with 9.5’ Beam and 5’ Draft. The motor is an Atomic 4 (gas) 30 HP. AC power 120 volts / DC power 12 volts. 20 gallons gas tank, (2) 27 lead acid batteries, (1) blue ray 7610 Si-ACK starter isolator charging relay, (1) industrial solar charge controller. VHF Uniden - UM380, Compasse Ritchie, Raymarine - speed, depth, trip. (2) Type II PFD (1) Type I PFD (1) TYpe III PFD. (1) Lifeslinf (1) Jim Buoy. (1) main sail (1) 120 genoa recently retreaded and added a protective layer to protect from sun when rolled on the roller furler. Roller furler. The hull is a full displacement with fin keel and spade rudder in fiberglass. Chainplates were inspected in 2021 and rebedded with no signs of corrosion (photos availables). Hard dinghy comes with the boat. (4) fenders with lines and assorted dock lines. Wheel and tiller included as well as new cushion covers included with the boat. Bluetooth speakers (2) outside (2) inside. Automatic bilge pump plugged on batteries (recharged with solar pannels) to avoid any issues if a leak were to occur. Additional manual bilge pump.

Accomodations: V-berth forward for two. Moving aft is the main saloon with settee’s both sides and a center folding table. The port settee slides out to a double berth. Further aft to starboard is a compact U-shaped galley with an ice chest, an alcohol two burner stove, and a single bay stainless steel sink. To port is a quarterberth.

Calculations

Hull Speed
7.5 kn
Classic: 6.7 kn

Hull Speed

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.

Formula

Classic hull speed formula:

Hull Speed = 1.34 x √LWL

A 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

7.53 knots
Classic formula: 6.7 knots
Sail Area/Displacement
17.3
16-20: good performance

Sail Area / Displacement Ratio

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.

Formula

SA/D = SA ÷ (D ÷ 64)2/3

  • SA: Sail area in square feet, derived by adding the mainsail area to 100% of the foretriangle area (the lateral area above the deck between the mast and the forestay).
  • D: Displacement in pounds.
17.34
<16: under powered
16-20: good performance
>20: high performance
Ballast/Displacement
42.8
>40: stiffer, more powerful

Ballast / Displacement Ratio

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.

Formula

Ballast / Displacement * 100

42.79
<40: less stiff, less powerful
>40: stiffer, more powerful
Displacement/Length
237.7
200-275: moderate

Displacement / Length Ratio

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.

Formula

D/L = (D ÷ 2240) ÷ (0.01 x LWL)³

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds.
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet
237.72
<100: ultralight
100-200: light
200-300: moderate
300-400: heavy
>400: very heavy
Comfort Ratio
24.0
20-30: coastal cruiser

Comfort Ratio

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.

Formula

Comfort ratio = D ÷ (.65 x (.7 LWL + .3 LOA) x Beam1.33)

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet
  • LOA: Length overall in feet
  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet
24.03
<20: lightweight racing boat
20-30: coastal cruiser
30-40: moderate bluewater cruising boat
40-50: heavy bluewater boat
>50: extremely heavy bluewater boat
Capsize Screening
1.9
<2.0: better suited for ocean passages

Capsize Screening Formula

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.

Formula

CSV = Beam ÷ ³√(D / 64)

  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet
  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
1.88
<2: better suited for ocean passages
>2: better suited for coastal cruising

Notes

In production for nearly 10 years, with more than 1000 built, this was one of Pearson’s most successful models. The designer, Bill Shaw, owned a Pearson 30 for a number of years.
Early models had Palmer inboards.
