Malo DS

You got me there: Malo DS

Well, what can I say, they have to build what the clients want.

MAL÷ SEMI CUSTOM

I cannot say I like the idea.

Regarding the ballast, it is about average on a mass production boat with a bulbed keel and about 2.00m draft. Bigger boats tend to less a smaller B/D ratio than smaller boats.

To have more ballast ratio you have to look for a more sportive boat or for a dedicated bluewater cruiser even if those, due to increase in draft and ballasted bulbs are also coming down in B/D ratio, but not in RM.
