The sailing ability that is emphasized in modern yacht design is an attempt to emulate racing boats....theoretically faster than the guy in the next slip, but takes alot more work and is hard in rough weather.
The interior has long been designed around the "average sailor" which in the US is a husband, wife and kids keeping their boat in a marina doing weekend coastal cruising with the interior design to satisfy the housewife (we all know who controls the purse strings).
Americans like to have a dedicated room for sleeping, so the marketing industry came up with a large Vee berth....absolutely the worst place to be below in nasty weather.
Full keel doesn't necessarily mean slow

nickpapa Look also into a nice comparison by Beth Leonard (in her book and articles) of their old boat a 38 foot design which she liked for its easy motion and their new 47' aluminum boat that although bigger is not more comfortable.

sailaway21 Marchaj's Seaworthiness: The forgotten factor explores all of the points made be Jeff above and is still well worth the investment. Seakindliness in a boat becomes a matter of seaworthiness once crew capabilities become reduced.

M275sailer The last issue of Good Old Boat had a very detailed article on this topic

captainmidnight Pacific Seacraft are "seakindly" boats, they move well and generally stay dry on deck.

sailingdog I believe the book is titled, "Seaworthiness: The forgotten factor" and misnamed in the previous post.

Marchaj,s book

I am a little curious about the book mentioned by Marchaj. It was stated as "Seakindliness The Forgotten Factor". I can't find a copy of this book. I can find a copy of "Seaworthiness The Forgotten Factor" by the same author. Are there two different names to one book or two different books with two different names or one book with one name?

Wow. That was unexpectedly lucid for a forum. Thanks.

I do not know but I can say I do appreciate the thread getting bumped and the great bit of detail Jeff made in his reply. It helps me in my consideration very much. For my needs it is apparent that a shoal keel is the best however I am very reluctant to go with a centerboard for the cavity and maintenance problems it can present. Still trying to sort this out and the information does help.
