Sailing 29ft Gaff Cutter offshore

Hi Everyone,
I am considering the purchase of a traditional 29 foot gaff cutter from the 20s however recently updated, hull covered with fibreglass, good yanmar engine etc...so my question is can I sail her beyond the typical coastal run or are they more suited to coastal rather than offshore passages?

I'm not new to sailing but very new to classic gaff cutters but she is such a beauty that I will probably buy her anyway and sail coastal if not suited for offshore but wanted to hear opinions...


Thanks in advance
