Cruising Catamarans Offshore

In my search for a shoal draft boat with some offshore abilities (East Coast, possibly as far as Bermuda or Yucatan) I just realized I have been totally ignoring catamarans.
This is a type of craft about which I know absolutely nothing; I have never even sailed a cat.
So I am looking for any input. Boats I have looked at in my size/price range include older Gemini 30-32, Iroquois 30 (one of the better looking cats to my mind} Prout 31 and Catalac 30.
As I said, any response is appreciated, but I am most interested in a discussion of small cruising cats offshore.
Thanks all, Gary
