On a yacht like the Faurby that is designed for displacement speeds, the full length of the hull stays in the water while sailing. This retains the dynamic waterline length, which boosts boatspeed. Other yachts with wider hull forms can unbalance as they heel, lifting the ends out of the water and reducing the dynamic waterline length while also lifting the top of the rudder from the water. This reduces the rudder’s effect, losing steerage and is why many wide-hulled boats need twin rudders. We don’t need two, we use a single, deep rudder.
