Beneteau/Bahamas bound

I currently sail on the coast in the Jacksonville area. Next year I want to partake in a trip to the Bahamas via Ft. Lauderdale(10-12hr. crossing). I have a 36'' Beneteau with a shoal keel, formaly a Moorings boat, which displaces about 15,000#, as it was built in France. I do not really have too much of a concern for the boats'' ability as well as mine, however, I was just curious what some of your thoughts might be since this is considerd a "production" boat. I know that the overall crossing is dependant on weather conditions and the gulfstream, but I was just curious for some opinions.

Thanks,
dch

Probably the fairest answer to your question given none of us know anything specific about the boat is to point out that several thousand production boats visit the Bahamas each year. Beyond that, it''s about your skills, the weather, and where you hope to go.
