CD gives good advice...a larger Catalina could do that trip at the right time of year with a good forecast but only with a well experienced crew. I'd be hesitant to attempt the trip myself and I would be VERY careful even in something like a Cat42. Since you are looking at smaller boats and you definitely plan to head all the way south and hope to cross the Pacific...I would prefer to see you in a real blue water boat. Save your $$ and go for the real thing you need.
