@jamiefu, I have combined your postings to one post. No need to have multiple posts with basically the same question.

Welcome to the forum!!

Depends on how you want to use the sailboat, e.g., cruising, racing, chartering. Make a table comparing each of the following parameters: age, price, waterline length, displacement, ballast, sail area, comfort ratio, capsize ratio, number of cabins, number of heads, engine hp, main cabin bed and shower configurations, arch, electronics and bow thruster, etc.. then you can make an selection based on the parameters that you value most.

Post #2 in this tread describes the author's construction differences: Jeanneau VS. Hunter or Bene? - Cruisers & Sailing Forums (cruisersforum.com)

Let the forum what your decision criteria was and selection.
