Difference between displacement and planning hull?

A displacement hull always displaces an amount of water equal to the weight of the boat. A planing hull at a certain speed, will begin PLANING and rise partly out of the water, forced up by its v shaped hull, and only be displacing an amount of water equal to partial weight of the boat. A large ship, a tugboat, a barge, or a sailboat are displacement hulls. A speedboat or a jetski are planing hulls.

What is the fastest type of sailboat?

As a general rule, catamarans have a higher average speed than mono-hull sailboats. Catamarans are not the fastest sailboat, only sailboats that are know for their speed. In fact the fastest type of sailboat that is available is actually a trimaran; however there is a new design that is currently in the finaly stages of development called the monosailor, when testing is done it is believed that the top speed will reach over 100knts all by wind power.
