Beneteau 11.5

I am seriously considering the purchase of a Beneteau Idylle 11.5. I am unfamiliar with this particular series. I know that the First series are the race boats that are reasonably well constructed and the Oceanis series are more for cruising and are a little less robust.
Does this boat fall somewhere in between or did it have some other purpose? I am a little concerned about the depth of draft for a boat that size and am wondering how well it can actually sail? I have no intention of racing this boat, but I don''t want to sail a boat that is a slug or one that simply can''t go to weather at all.
