Interior

The boat is equipped with 2+2 berths and a galley.

Rig

The boat has a fractional rig. A fractional rig has smaller headsails which make tacking easier, which is an advantage for cruisers and racers, of course. The downside is that having the wind from behind often requires a genaker or a spinnaker for optimal speed.

Keel

The keel is made of iron.
Many people prefer lead keel in favour of iron.
The main argument is that lead is much heavier than iron and a lead keel can therefore be made smaller which again result in less wet surface, *i.e.* less drag.
In fact iron is quite heavy, just 30% less heavy than lead, so the advantage of a lead keel is often overstated.
The boat can enter even shallow marinas as the draft is just about 1.05 - 1.15 meter (3.44 - 3.74 ft) dependent on the load. See immersion rate below.

This section covers widely used rules of thumb to describe the sailing characteristics. Please note that even though the calculations are correct, the interpretation of the results might not be valid for extreme boats.

Stability and Safety

What is Capsize Screening Formula (CSF)?

The capsize screening value for Fabola Campus 600 is 3.08, indicating that this boat would not be accepted to participate in ocean races.

Theoretical Maximum Hull Speed

What is Theoretical Maximum Hull Speed?

The theoretical maximal speed of a displacement boat of this length is 5.4 knots. The term "Theoretical Maximum Hull Speed" is widely used even though a boat can sail faster. The term shall be interpreted as above the theoretical speed a great additional power is necessary for a small gain in speed.

Immersion rate

The immersion rate is defined as the weight required to sink the boat a certain level.
The immersion rate for Fabola Campus 600 is about 72 kg/cm, alternative 403 lbs/inch.

Meaning: if you load 72 kg cargo on the boat then it will sink 1 cm. Alternative, if you load 403 lbs cargo on the boat it will sink 1 inch.

Bottom Paint

When buying anti-fouling bottom paint, it's nice to know how much to buy.
The surface of the wet bottom is about 12m^{2} (129 ft^{2}).

Based on this, your favourite maritime shop can tell you the quantity you need.

Note: If you use a paint roller you will need more paint than if you use a paintbrush.
