It depends what you're intended use is. If offshore cruising is part of the plan the Pacific Seacraft would be a better choice I think. The numbers don't always tell the tale. I think the leaner Pacific Seacraft with less wetted surface and a more efficient keel makes for a better sailor. Narrow boats would be my preference over wider boats in this type of boat. And I admit to being a fan of the late Bill Crealock. I don't think he ever designed a slow boat or a bad looking boat. No gingerbread, just function and beauty.
