I am always for door #3.
Buy THE boat and learn to sail on it and fix it up to be yours and learn all the systems. It is just as easy to learn how to sail and handle a 40 ft. boat is it is a 22ft. boat.
Your big problem with door #3 is that you don't KNOW enough about boats to PICK the right one for your plans. But you can get lots of help here with that and from friends and surveyors. Just don't believe the brochures or the brokers!!
