Off Shore Boat

I am considering buying one of 3 older boats for off shore cruising. Pearson 365, Cal 39, and Catalina 38.
Dose anyone have an opinion on which one they would buy to cruise offshore with, and why ?

Isn't all sailing done offshore?

Lets hope so, or we all have the wrong boats! we would need land yachts! vs water yachts!

The Catalina IMHO is #3, then not sure if the pearson or cal would get the #1 or 2 choice. The Cal 40 is a known good offshore boat, not sure how close or far the 39 is for the same purpose.

So, first reply is Pearson 365 and Cal 39 are tied and rated higher for, blue water, transcontinental, passages, than the Catalina 38. I would agree , the Catalina is the lighter weight of the three.

Would other members be so kind as to submit your opinions on this matter.

I think the Pearson 365 would be far kinder and easier to handle than the Cal 39. If you've read Liz Clark's blog about s/v Swell... you'd know that the motion on the Cals isn't the kindest, since they were primarily designed as racing boats, not cruisers.

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.

So out of the 3 boats the members preferences now for intercontinental cruising is, First , Pearson 365, Second Cal 39, Third Catalina 38.

I don't think I'd choose any of them for an ocean crossing.

Personally, I'd go with an HR Rasmus 35.

Or Pretorian 35 of a number of other boats that would suit the purpose and are likely available in the same price range.
