WTF is the point of having an ocean going vessel without bikini’s or rod holders. Seems like a huge waste.

Its over 7000 miles. At 8 knots its about 900 running hours or about 41 days (if running continuously). Add about a week.

Which model?

The 60ish foot boats don't carry much fuel imho (1000 gal).

You are grossly underestimating the time involved and you will need one hell of a captain to run 24 hrs a day for 41 days.

You will need at least two captains (at least in the U.S.A.)

I have friends that are captains on long range boats out of san diego they could get you a long ways and be in familiar waters (to them).

One thing you have working for you is that if swells are from typical direction you will be going downhill.
