That's like asking a 2001 Ford Taurus or a 1984 Range Rover...
The Benetau is newer, and you get a bigger boat, more plastic, faster sail, more space and less expenditure to keep up. The Norseman, is a very well built boat, slower, smaller and better finished...
If you're going to sail coastal then lie around in the caribbean, I'd go for the Benetau, and get more space.
