A Columbia 50 that is good condition should be well suited to that kind of cruising. Its the good condition part that is hard to access without actually seeing the boat. This is a 30 year old boat and so unless maintained by a diligent owner quite likely is in need of a second set of new standing and running rigging and sails, new engine and electronics, updated deck and galley hardware and so on.
