Ocean cruisers are outside my area of messabout interest, but a 24ft that has done as well for her crew as could be asked is SERAFFYN, made famous by Lin and Larry Pardey, and a Lyle Hess design, too.
She seems to come up for sale every couple of years, so a bit of cruising fame could be gotten by flapping your checkbook.
Surely the VERTUE class, just a bit bigger, has made more successful difficult voyages than any other design near her size. There are literally dozens of designs that would work well for ocean voyaging, some smaller than your size base.
