I think "transatlantic capability" is kind of a meaningless term. It would be more helpful to say "this boat can handle 20 foot seas, and 50 kt winds" or something like that, but even that isn't all that specific. Consider the two boats pictured below; the small boat crossed the Atlantic, and the Cruise ship sank while it was anchored.
