Any boat can sail across an ocean in good weather. The real issue is what boats offer the most comfort in sailing through a variety of open ocean conditions. When the wind clock 180deg to the prevailing swell, would you rather be on medium or heavy displacement boat or a light boat. And how much effort will it take you to manage that vessel in cases where the winds and waves do not coincide? Not to say that an experience skipper couldn't sail either type of boat safely under those conditions, but as a cruising retired couple, which would you prefer? A slower Baba or a fast modern Bene?
