My understanding is that's the best calc available. If you want any better you need to have the boat measured, which I think involves an inclination test, and majority of people only do that for racing certification.

I believe most yacht designers would be able to come up with measurements, assuming they have sonme fancy software. However, as you normally only see this info on new yachts (and not always) my guess it that it is a difficult process / fair amount of work.
