I think the Mariah is probably the toughest PSC ever built, which as you know is saying quite a bit. I also think they represent good value in the vintage bluewater cruiser market, and would be a good choice for the kind of trip and sailing preferences you described.
At one point I had collected some specs/info on the Mariah, but I can't seem to find it now. You are correct that there were Mark I and II versions. I don't recall any specifics on the distinguishing features, but another SailNet member (can't remember who) recently mentioned that there were some changes to the ballast (location and amount, I believe). Some were sold as hull/deck kits and owner finished, so it will pay to survey them carefully.
Also, yet another SailNet member (screen name: dhornsey) is currently replacing the engine in his Mariah, so he may be a good resource for info.
