Two different boats. The Bene 310 is a racer that can cruise. The Cat 30 is a cruiser that can be used in club races. The Bene 310 rates 138 PHRF (very quick for a boat that size) and the Cat 30 rates 186 (pretty slow for a 30 footer). The Bene will be more fun to sail, while the Cat will have better cruising accomodations. The Bene would be my choice.
