Bluewater defined?

Are Freedom Yachts considered bluewater? It seems that a "bluewater" boat is always judged on its'' displacement and full keel, yet I have seen some Freedoms with shoal keels. Am a I interpreting the word bluewater too loosely? I have a Beneteau that is probably considered coastal yet it displaces more than some of the Freedom Yachts. Help me to understand who defines the notation of a boat as being bluewater?

Thanks,
dch
