nor 'Sea 27... are they as slow as they look?

Howdy folks,
its cold and rainy again so to avoid my bouts of winter depression i resort to my favorite bad winter weather passtime..... looking at boats and trying to come up with a plan to sail across the big pond to france (hey its better than prozac)...... so i'm all situated with a warm siffter of conyac, cuban stoogie, paris combo playing in the background and i run across a nor'Sea 27.... salty looking little ship, heavy, built like a tank, and slow? i've read some of the owners blogs but how objective can you really be about your boat? So my questions are:
  • Is this really a safe bluewater boat, capable of crossing the atlantic with a reasonable degree of comfort and speed?
  • Will europeans want to buy it after i've cruised the med and french canals?
  • They are not cheap, are they worth the money?
Time to stoke the fire and put on some wool socks.... come on spring!!!!
