I know you'll get the usual from "experts" on "bluewater" boats but a good friend did four single-handed crossings of the Atlantic in a stock Hughes 35. He returned one year by the northern route and took quite a beating but the boat stood up quite well. His boat was a Hughes 35 built by Hughes not a Northstar.
