From Jeff H's post: "A well designed and constructed coastal cruiser will often make a reasonable offshore cruising boat"

Any specific models that you feel would fit into that category?

sailingfool, you are the man. you have turned my head in a new direction, there's one in my home port (Van, BC) that i am going to go see tomorrow. The 5 or 6 on YW seem to be very well equiped, providing a pretty good clue about how their use as an extended cruiser. beutiful boat, can't wait to get aboard. will keep you posted, thanks for the tip!

Not in your area but for the sake of comparison.

I have sailed a fair bit in Lake Ontario on a cs36T which did two transatlantics and it is a well built, great sailing comfortable yacht.

In fact the PO of my boat wrote a book about cruising the CS 36T:

An Allied Seawind Ketch (Gillmer design) is an excellent long distance boat.

To simplify the question...
Do you think a Beneteau First 44.7 would go round the world on the 'traditional route' (Cape Horn, Cape of Good Hope...). Not thinking about the water/fuel tanks but of the structure of the boat, sails, rig etc...

If not, what would you choose for circumnavigation (traditional route) when you'd like it fast (and you'd also want to survive it...)? Well yes, you could build a Volvo 70 and it would be bloody fast, but you also know that isn't what I'm thinkig of...

Balage...
How about a nice Halberg Rassey or Saga instead? The Bene is not the boat for that kind of sailing.

Well, yes, I'm agree with you, that a HR would surely circumnavigate, but what if performance and speed is what you need?

Well if you want even faster than the HR you could get one of those Hunter HC-50...Hunter's Child which was designed for fast around the world sailing.
