If the 24 is built to the same standards as the 26 I wouldn't even consider taking it offshore. Until now I did not understand what you were talking about when discussing MacGregors - Now I've seen a brandnew, and have instructed my kids to NEVER set foot on one of those if it's going to leave the marina.
The other models may be a totally different animal though?
Go find a Contessa, Marieholm or similar and take the tradewind route to the Azores, Northern Europe, and then go south to the Canaries and Cabo Verde.
