Sabre 34 offshore

The Sabre 34 is listed on the Mahina list as offshore capable. She also has a PHRF of 153. So on paper she is supposed to be strong and not slow. However, I don't seem to be able to find any documented or semi-documented accounts of Sabre 34s that are doing or have done substantial ocean passages. No luck with Google nor the Sabre group on Yahoo. Are there any Sabre 34 owners out there with significant extended offshore experience (ocean crossing) on their own boat?

I looked at Sabres. Though the boats are strong they dont have the tankage you would want to do an ocean crossing. No doubt they could be modified to do it though. I know some larger sabres have done the Bermuda race though.
