Could it - yes. Would it be my first choice - that's another matter. I think you should figure out who you want to crew it for you first and then discuss with them 1. the things which need to be done to it to make it a reasonably safe passage
and 2. the things which will make it a more comfortable one.
Among the obvious improvements are tankage, rigging
pump(s), sea berths, safety
lines, HF radio
capacity and charging
scheme, sole plate locks, cabinet locks,etc.... all of which are significant additions and you still have a boat with little storage
