beam vs length

I am looking at a boat with an 11'' beam and over all length is 45''. the mast is 5o + feet tall, she draws 6.5''. 11'' is not the usual beam width on boats of this size, and seems narrow. what sort of handling issues are there? How about safety, and healing I am not sure but it seems the water line is maybe 40''.
