While the right sailor can probably sail most any boat around the world, preparation is everything. At a quick glance at one on Yachtworld I'd say the cockpit is too large and should be made smaller. The companionway is too large - a filled cockpit would find its way into the cabin in short order. With these changes and general strengthening of rigging, ports, et all I think you could sail this boat offshore in good weather. It is billed as a "starter boat and good weekender" and would not be my choice. Definitely not built to the standard of the Contessa 26. A voyage across an ocean or farther should be an accomplishment not a gamble. Just my opinion.
