If you want to have one boat and paddle it on Class III water then buy a boat that can handle Class III water and put up with it on flat water. Otherwise buy a boat that is better on flat water and plan to portage around the Class IIIs (and technical Class IIs).
You might get frustrated paddling a whitewater boat on flat water but if you try it the other way around you might get hurt.
