Smack, a well designed 30ft can pass the requirements for class A. almost all European 33ft are class A boats. It is a minimum requirement.

Regarding being more or less offshore capable than European boats you would need to compare boat for boat. Certainly that are some European production boats more offshore capable than the Hunter, others will be similar.
