A sailboat will have positive buoyancy if the weight of the boat is less than the weight of the water it takes the place of. The weight of the water that is being occupied by the hull is displacement.

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.

Does the shape of the sailboat affect its sail?

There is a constantly ongoing interrelationship between hull shape, angle of heel, immersed hull area and shape, windage and wind resistance of the uppers of a hull, angle and speed of the wind, sea state, and the sail. So yes -- clearly there is. If you're asking, "does a given hull design place a requirement on the size and type of sails?" -- yes it also does. A hull designed for a fore-and-aft rig typically will not perform well with a squaresail rig. Likewise, putting up a 180% Genoa headsail on a sabot just... won't.... do. Typically, the designer allows for the rig(s) in the overall boat design.

How fast can a sailboat sail?

It depends on many factors. The hull shape, how the sails are rigged, how much sail area you have, the ability of the crew, the wind speed, the tide.
