From the specs you can determine the speed of the vessel, the capsize ratio.
The comfort ratio and so forth.
After you have worked up these numbers you go and view the boat for yourself and sit in it walk from one end of the cabin to the other. Walk around the deck and if the boat is in the water, you get a feel of how the boat moves.
But it is still on how your own feelings are about that particular vessel.
