It is not on Mahina's offshore list though.

Well the Mahina offshore list is just one couple's list, and obviously cannot cover nowhere near all offshore capable boats. Jeanneau have built a lot of VERY seaworthy boats, including the different Gin Fizz models. The 38' Ketch version is designed by Michel Joubert (IIRC), and should be more than capable to take her around the world, provided it is properly prepared and maintained.
..I don't like the youngest stuff, but also not that she should be stopped by the government.

Watch great footage about the story of one manís slow odyssey around the UK:
