Many factors affect range including quality of the radio and antenna, height of antenna, terrain (VHF is line of sight).

That said it is the standard device to carry on a boat (along with a cell phone). SSB and ham might be carried offshore but I think more commonly it would be a sat phone or communicator like an InReach these days
