The choice of an Integrity trawler yacht is also depending on what your plans are regarding the area where you are sailing. Integrity trawleryachts have the seakeeping characteristics of a displacement hull. A displacement yacht in the 34-62 feet range will be capable of maintaining speeds between 6-12 knots. The fuel consumption is in balance with these speeds and economic. When planning coastal cruising with the safety of a true passagemaker, the Integrity trawler is your ideal ship.
We could inform you about the principles regarding seaworthy and stability of our ships.
D/L is calculated with full load(including fuel,water,interior).The shorter the vessel the higher is the D/L. More heavily built boats will be more comfortable. A 48ft Lwl boat should have a ratio of 255.
S/L when more then 1.34 it needs great amounts of additional power. The figure between 1.0 and 2.0 are displacement hulls. Ideal for long range cruising are figures between 1.0 and 1.5., S/L figures above 2.0 are planing hulls. A S/L ratio between 1.1 and 1,2 gives the most economic fuel/speed consumption.
A/B the lower ratiofigure the better. Oceangoing passagemakers should have ratio's between 2.1 and 2.7.
For your information the ratio's for the Integrity 550 Coastal express A/B 2.3 , D/L 482 , S/L 1.29 (cruising 8 knots).
