Architeuthis also has a dark green hull. We're heading for the tropics next November (Santa Barbara to Mexico, French Polynesia, possibly Samoa and then on to New Zealand). Maybe we'll be boiled alive (as suggested in that Cruisers Forum thread) but I doubt it. As Dan pointed out, the Mariners are better insulated than most boats. I know that a friend with a Catalina 34 struggles to keep his boat warm during mild California winters while Architeuthis is nice and warm while running the same little electric heater about 1/4 as much as he does.
