I'm sure both are perfectly capable of the trip in the right hands and other factors will prove more important:

- seat layout
- storage / console design
- engine
- size of fuel tanks
- quality of how its all screwed together (age, original fit out, maintenance)
- the electronics package which on a trip like that can simplify life or be a total ball ache to use.

put the biggest engine you can and the biggest underdeck tank. like this even you full of fuel and packs for a big trip you can have a nice average on flat sea with a low RPM !
