SVG Rating?

What is it? I see references to John Kretschmer and this particular rating for cruising monohulls. Maybe someone who has read a Kretschmer book could explain the term?
Thanks in advance!

I think it just stands for "Sailing Value Guide," as he wrote a lot of his boat reviews for Sailing Magazine.

Re: SVG Rating?

The SVG is based on ratings in ten categories: price, design quality, construction quality, user-friendliness, safety, typical condition, refitting, support, availability, investment and resale.
