From a previous post, that is stuck as I recall, with the list listed, the Tayana's were not included due to lack of tankage. Now, the definition is based on John's specs, and IIRC the Tayana is not that far below his minimum, and are very easily added too, to make them meet this spec.
Some boats are low in things like lack of tankage, others could be scantlings, ie build material specs etc.
Take the list for what it is, generally speaking a good list of boats that will go off shore, BUT, there are others that will do fine to, depending upon your spec. Frankly, i would not take too many of them off shore, then again, I do not generally speaking like the design specs for most of the boats listed, and would rather be offshore in my 85 Jeanneau Arcadia 30, than say an IP32.
