I am assuming that given your choice of boats your boat buying budget is around 20K american, and that you are based in the USA ??
I apologise if this is a long post, and my intent is not to lecture, but hopefully to provide advice
. THe Pearson Vanguard is probably the best of those you chose, but at tha price scale there are a number of boats that are bluewater capable, and that are available in the USA

Southern Cross 31
The big issue here is not one of original boat cost, (many boats can cross oceans given the right gear)but what it costs to have the kit suitable for long ocean passages. Even staying quite simple
My advice would be to expand your horizons vis a vis the brand of boat.
