Everything scottyt said but then I am a sucker for older boats anyway. Sleeping 4 on a Cat. 25 may be tight. I suggest you go into the cabins of both boats and figure out how you might get 4 bodies places to sleep. Have you looked at any Cat. 30s?
Another consideration for the area you will be sailing in is draft or keel depth. Do either of these boats have a retractable center board? Even with a draft of 4' you will still find the bottom eventually, trust me. Some of the nicer 'gunk holes' are guarded by pretty thin water.
The bottom line is it does not matter which boat we would choose. You will have to make your own choice for your own reasons.
