What can you tell me about an anonymous boat by these specifications:

LOA (on deck): 26'8"
LWL (waterline): 20'5"
Displacement: 7000 lbs
Ballast: 2900 lbs
Beam: 9'10"
Sail area: 323 sq. ft.
Draft: 3'11"

I'm curious about what relatively unbiased opinions I'll get by not naming the boat in question.
My unbiased and relatively inexperienced opinion would be; Heavy for its size, too beamy for its size, underpowered for its weight.

I can only base this on a boat I had of simular LOA and LWL. Our Displacement was half, ballast was half, beam was 2 foot less, sail area was equal and draft was 1.7 foot more., it was a very quick boat and a blast to sail

I wanna play! Here are the specs of the boat we currently have in escrow, awaiting survey and sea trial.

(No cheating CD!)
LOA- 41'10
LWL- 34'7
Beam- 12'9
Displacement-21,500
Draft- 5'10
Ballast- 8,870

(I love this one, the ARE loves this one, here's hoping the surveyor loves it as well so we can be done already!)
Sail Area- 800 sq ft.
