Looking at the listing, the boat has what looks to be a pretty generous sail plan. Every Colvic Watson I have every encountered was a motorsailer, in which case, that cruising range is easily within the realm of possibility.

Size-wise and design-wise, it loosely resembles a Fisher 37 which weighs 14T, has 80-100HP and carries 100G of fuel. They have larger sailing rigs, but also motor-sail frequently in lighter conditions. These designs routinely cross oceans.
