Oceanis vs. First vs. Beneteau ?

Can someone while knowlege of the 2 or 3 lines of boats made by Beneteau please explain their positioning for me? It looks from the online catalog (where it is not explained) that the First line are racer/cruisers and the Oceanis more cruisers. But there does seem to be a lot of variation in both, some of the Firsts are pretty racey, others (older designs) more conservative.

Also, I think I've read here or somewhere like here, that the Firsts are better? Not sure if the person meant better = faster, or if they are actually a higher end construction.
