THere is a 2002? Jeanneau Sun Odysess 37 for sale in LA that just spent the last 5 yrs sailing around the world with its owner. Not what most would describe as a sail anywhere boat. But it did! There are currently 5'ish Jeanneau's along with a few Beneteaus on the ARC world cruise. Granted these are mostly 40' and up, but still what folks would NOT describe as world cruisers brands.
While I do not want to bash Tartan, I do like the brand, at least the newest, than yr 2000 have door openings all the way to the cockpit floor. I personally do not like this options, yes great for ingress egress, but if a following sea hits you, you have way more water in the cabin assuming the doors are open, than ones like Jeanneau's that have the door open to the top of the cockpit seats.
Look for some of these types of items that make a better offshore if you will boat when looking at boats.
