An Oyster 62 should handle it.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I do not know too much about US and Canadian boats. I will buy a boat in US and sail to Turkey with it. This is something like a bet. I might continue to use the boat or sell it when the trip is over. The budget is of course limited, an Oyster 62 is far above the limits.

It would help a lot if you said what your budget was...

Budget $ 60000 or below. Might increase it a little bit.

My thought was that you are limiting your options quite a bit by spec-ing a ketch or yawl rig. Open that up to cutters and even sloops and you'll have many more options.

$60,000 seems a bit tight for a bluewater capable boat in the 36-44' range that are ready to make an Atlantic crossing. Quite a few boats to look at, but I doubt most are ready to go as is...
