Catalina 387

I'm looking at buying a Catalina 387
It has a draft of 1.6mt and has a winged keel.
Are these good ocean going vessels.
I'm thinking of doing a trip to South East Asia and the South Pacific.
Thanks

Re: Catalina 387

Would not be my first choice for such a passage. But people sailed in less capable boats where you're planning to go.

You don't mention the age of the vessel, its condition, equipment, etc. Or whether or not it had been already modified by the PO to sail offshore. All of these have to be factored in before discussing the capability of this particular boat and not just that model in general.

Thanks for the reply
I'm looking at a 2007 mod that has recently sail half way around the world. It is well equiped for expended offshore sailing.
For the money I have to spend I would be looking at Bavarias, Benetaeu or jeanneau. I want something around ten years old. I have recently sold a jeanneau 342 which was great for coastal sailing and sailed thousands of miles singlehanded. I want something a few feet bigger and head offshore for a few years
