You're on a tight budget even so.. Also, if you buy an ex charter maybe buy one that's already there. Avoids the serious offshore passage to get there.
$50K all up and truly offshore capable doesn't leave you much of the 'room and space' (read LOA) you seem to need - though you might be overestimating how much you will need..
