C&C 29 Mk II Vs. Beneteau First 28.5/29

Hello,

Recently I have seen a few ads locally for Beneteau First popping up alongside C&C 29s.

C&C 29 Mk II asking prices range from about $30-35k Canadian. Models from 1983-84.

Beneteau First 28.5/29 - $42-45k Models range 1984-88

What is it about the Beneteau that motivates a relatively higher price here? Is it a "much" better boat and if so in what sense?

(In terms of equipment/age of sails etc there's some variance but it's not like all Beneteaus consistently have 6 new sails or the C&Cs 2 old sails. It varies across the makes.)
