That's not an offshore boat. If it were mine, it would never leave the sight of land.
Not to say it's not a decent boat, in fact, it may serve you well for a year or two while you get your sailing legs. But I sure as heck would not plan on sailing the Caribbean in it.
For that, you need a boat set up for long distance, open water cruising and the size of the boat is only one consideration.
