I think virtually any modern production boat (Hunter just being one brand) can be sailed around the world without problem as long as it is sailed prudently and well. There's plenty of evidence that this is the case...just on SN alone.

The problem is the old-school thinking (which doesn't seem to be as widespread as it used to be) that it's stupid to even try to do so unless you are in a "traditional offshore boat".
