Yamaha 33 as offshore cruiser?

I have limited experience with the Yamaha 33 in onshore sailing that would suggest that they would not make very good offshore boats. The Yamahas were intended to be IOR racer/cruisers and based on my experience with their sailing characteristics they would make a nice coastal cruiser but would not be ideal offshore. They do seem to be well constructed and sail well in moderate conditions. They get a little dicey in gustier conditions.
