Pearson Triton Vs. Alberg 30

hello,
im most likely a year or two away from owning my first boat. i am planning on the most circunavigation and the least the med or carribean for a year. depending how confident i am in the boat/my skills/money available. i plan on living on the boat during the summer months and working on it in the winter. so the two boats that have really drawn my interest is the Pearson Triton and the Alberg 30 because of thier construction, blue water capabilities, single-handing capabilities, and classic lines. Also because they are both on the small size for bluewater boats so the cost of owning should theoretically less. Now to my question. if it was you, would you either spend the 20-25k on a good Alberg 30 and make 5k of changes or buy a 10-15k on a decent Pearson Triton and put 15k into the boat?. would the added space that the 2 feet gives you make a huge difference? I have would like to spend at most 30k so i can maximum the amount of time i can spend offshore.
-kai
