Maybe if you just coastal cruised, but the space taken up by supplies and safety gear for ocean crossings (compulsory for the original poster if he leaves from home in a NZ registered boat) wouldn't leave much space. And forget about taking a partner with you or enticing one to join you on the way!
Cheers,

Ok, not trans ocean, but this fella is circumnavigating the UK on a 21 footer. Taking his time, intention seems to be wintering in Scotland

The adventures of Kudu

Not my (or most others) cup of tea either, on both size and brrrrrrrrrrrr!!

Cruised to Mexico and the Sea of Cortez in the mid 80's with two couples; one couple in a Falmouth 22 and one couple in a Dana 24. Those boats really have all you need and are seaworthy to a fault. Both were as fast as our 30 footer.... actually the Dana a touch faster. Both had similar accomodation as our 30 footer. (really until you get up to where you have two heads and two double berths, the main difference is floor space between the fixtures!) You take what you need, and encumber yourself a lot less!

For the Pacific the record is Yankee Girl 9 feet 8 inches the same boat /skipper held the Atlantic record at the same time for a while. It's not just the boat. Minimal is not to be confused with enjoyable.
