If ya got a second 85 40''''farr vs 76 42'''' c&c

Looking at both these boats. I am novice but looking at there PFR rateing they both seem quite quick ( farr though much faster i take it). Question i have is How sea Worthy are they , Could i some day use them to cruise. I understand the Water and Fuel capacity would need upgradeing but what of there overall seaworthness. I assume i would give up quite a bit of creature comfort to use these boats as cruisers, But maybe its not as bad as i think . One last thing. There is also a 39 foot pearson for sale in my area i know its not like the other two above but....could that be used as a ocean going boat? ( i know the whole xyz crossed the world in a rowboat aurgument) if its not "bluewater" can it be made so with in reason?

Thanks in advance that is alot of questions i know i really appricate any and all conments. Being new to boating i put great weight in the information i consume from the posters here.
