RE: What would you do?

I would not go for Option 1 unless I had the time and desire to be part of the refit or had the money to pay a very trusted "owner's representative" to live with the project until completion. Even then I would not let any part of it out of my sight for long and the level of involvement demanded will be far beyond what you may be willing to commit.

Never, never, turn that kind of project over to a yard or any contractor. Nothing good will come of it and while that is a fact it is not because yards or contractors are bad or crooked, it is because it is not their boat or their money (though a lot of yours will be theirs by the time it's all over) and they cannot possibly see your vision with any degree of clarity.
