Would this be a good blue water boat?

Hey folks,

While out on a day sail this past weekend, I was bit by the cruising bug. I'd love nothing more than to spend a couple years dropping anchor in the ports of my choice to enjoy cool beverages out of bamboo cups.

To date, my longest voyage has been Long Beach to Catalina, but I really think I'm ready for this. My first leg will be Baltimore to the Azores. Unfortunately, I won't be able to leave until next Thursday because I have a dentist appointment on Wednesday.

Having said that, this is the vessel I have chosen. Any thoughts or recommendations would be appreciated.

My blue water cruiser.

With only one jacuzzi and no helipads (plural) I'm afraid that doesn't count.

If they include a copy of the "Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou" that they are playing in one of the room displayed, then it's a killer deal!
