Boat for offshore

Is it a good idea to buy a fixer offshore boat for cheap (if possible) ie Alberg 30 and fix it up in my yard. I have a small workshop and a fairly good idea of boat repairs. I sail a cc29 and am gaining lots of experience but I don't think I want to take this boat offshore. I do think it could handle it with prep work. I want an Atlantic crossing and that is about it. Cruise Europe a bit then sail back to Canada.

I have seen some good offshore boats for resonable prices. I am not ging offshore for 5 years (retirement)
