catalina 30 cruising

My wife and I are planning to cruise for a couple of years. Our goal is to crusie the Gulf of Mexico, Bahamas and the east coast. We have looked at some heavy bluewater boats and they seemed slow and spartan. The catalina 30 seems much more liveable and supposedly has better light wind performance. Are they rugged enough that a reasonable person would sail them in the Bahamas??? We are on a limited budget and the price and availablity of the C30 is very attractive. We can get a well equipped 15 year old C30 for the same amount of money as a 30 year old stripped out blue water boat. I looked at a old blue water boat and she said " I won''t live on that thing!!"
