I assume you are looking at 4100's and not the older 41's.
As Irwin32 says...they are well built boats and capable of offshhore passages. I would not choose one for long term cruising myself as I think the design will provide a rough time on the crew offshore AND I don't like spade rudders...but that is something many would disagree with!
Since you seem to prefer aft cockpit medium displacement boat....also look at Caliber 40 and Saga43's which are in the same price range and more tilted to long term cruising in design.
