Lake Michigan Boat Question

We are planning on moving up to larger boat capable of sailing the Great Lakes. Home port will be in Traverse City. One of the divisions often cited on this forum is the coastal cruiser vs the off shore boat. We plan on doing at least some cross-lake sailing (Lake Michigan). Would people consider cross Lake Michitgan “off shore”? We are looking at a new (or newish) Catalina 309-320-350 and everyone here seems to think that Catalinas are not off shore boats. Are we looking at the wrong type of boat?


Any thoughts?
Thanks

Frank
