Zan...opinions vary on that score but apparently there have been changes at Hunter in the last few years and their 3 newest models (including the 49 which member sequiter just took delivery of) are apparently suitable for ocean cruising. Of course the old Cherubini Hunters from the 70's have also been well regarded. As for me...time will tell on the new ones.
This is not to dis' Hunters in general which have been marketed and sold as inexpensive boats for coastal cruising with style. They suit that purpose...as do several other production brands.
