LOA has little to do with seaworthyness. Many larger power vessels are not designed for serious weather
....and that short crossing can get serious in the right weather conditions. And you wont be able to do 20 knots in any significant seas.
I would choose your window carefully.
Also depending on where you headed, weather may be a concern even after the crossing. I once watched a similar sized power vessel become spare parts
in the Bimini
Channel in bad conditions. Appparently he thought LOA
meant he could ingore weather too.
