Kanter's book, "Cruising Catamarans Communique" is a good resource for what's out there. I listened to Kanter's talk when he was out in Oakland, CA back in April for the Strictly Sail show and he spoke highly of the old Sailcraft catamarans (i.e. Commanche, Iroquois, Apache, etc...) for an inexpensive entry into catamarans.
The best thing to do is to go out and look at what's available in your area. You'll soon detect things you like and things you don't like about different catamarans, and differing build quality and finishing are also apparent to the discerning eye.
I think tank volume (water, gas or diesel, and holding) are important considerations for crossing oceans. That said, there are people crossing oceans on almost every sort of production catamaran.
