If I had 175,000 to spend I would buy a used boat of a similar size with a higher build quality, like a Tartan or Sabre. It is my understanding that the Oceanis is not Beneteau's highest quality line and I would not consider it a blue water boat, from what I've heard. This summer, I did a similar analysis and bought an old Swan 41 in very nice shape for substantially less money. Not as much room below but relatively fast and built like a tank. Of course, if new and space below is more imprtant to you, the Oceanis could be a good choice.
