Yamaha 25

I was wondering if anyone could give me some idea of whether a Yamaha 25 is a seaworthy enough boat for an Atlantic crossing? I don't hear much about them, probably because the are not sold in the US. I have heard a rumor or two of some crossing the Pacific to Hawaii? Small boat but seawothy? Thanks!

Here's an owner review...doesn't seem like the best boat for extended cruising to me given the intended use and short tankage.

The new issue of Good Old Boat has a review of the Yamaha 25. It doesn't mention an Atlantic crossing, but it gets a good review as a daysailer. I'm sure under the right conditions, it could make a crossing, heck, people have done it rowboats, but WHY would you want to?
