brak is on a distinguished road
I think these are comparable boats in quality of build and maintainability etc (in my opinion both decent, not perfect). So, the decision really has to be based on what suits you more. I would make sure cabin layout, cockpit size and line positions etc all suit you. That way you'll never be completely unhappy with the boat, no matter what else is right or wrong.

Then again, personally, I'd choose Beneteau - I owned two so far, they weren't ideal but they served their purpose well enough and I can't complain much about either.
