Is Hughes 35 A Offshore Boat ?

Hey guys - looking at a 1980 Hughes 35 here in the PNW - definitely tired and needs TLC but im wondering if ultimately she would be a good hull design for extended offshore...

anyone familiar with them? They are a Sparkmans and Stephens design built by Hughes Columbia in Ontario. Have been unable to find a line drawing of keel but am told it is a modified fin.

LOA 35' 6"
LWL 26'
Beam 10' 4"
Draft 5' 10"
Ballast 5,400 lbs.
Displ. 12,000 lbs.
Sail Area 498 Sq. ft.
Main 194 sq. ft.
Fore 304 sq. ft.

thanks for any feedback.!
