    as the basis for a fast motor cruiser/motor-sailor when in sail mode?......

    when compared to a 'from scratch' designed motor sailor or pure cruising sailor of same size.

    Figure the E-Boat based hull would feature drop keels for sailing.

    I depends on what you design. Unless you give us a design to compare it to, there is no answer.

    E-boat is really S-Boot and highly specialized for what it was. No way to make it something else and still have it be same. Easy to make sailboat same beam/length ratio but S-Boot designed to go 45 knots on 4,000 hp with big war load, not a sailboat at all.
