I believe PHRFs vary by the area you will be racing in. There are regional PHRF associations that set the PHRF ratings for that area of the country. If you are planning on racing you will need to be certified by the local association. The PHRF rating is also affected by the type of equipment you have, such as exotic sails, folding props, etc. Once you find your local PHRF association they typically list all the boats they have rated so you should be able to get an idea as to the rating you are looking for. Here is the address for the New England Phrf association, it should answer a lot of your questions.
