Motion at Sea

Take two boats of about 38 feet and 18,000 lbs.

One has a modern "fairly flat" underbody with a fin keel and spade rudder.

The other has a older, more of a "Vee" shaped underbody with a modified fin and skeg hung rudder.

Will the different shapes alone change the motion at sea? If so, which one gives the best ride?
