Beneteau 311 vs Tartan 31

I am looking at two boats and I wanted to hear everyones thoughts on the two boats. I know they are very different and i'm not comparing apples to apples but hear me out.

I was set on the Tartan which was a late 80's Tartan 31. However I came across an early 2000's beneteau 311 and now I'm having a hard time choosing.

The Tartan is a much better boat but the beneteau is 15 years younger and after speaking with the owners I think I could get them at about the same price. The Beneteau owner is very motivated to sell otherwise they would not be in the same price range

They are both in very good condition for their years.

Is the Tartan really that much better that I can over look the 15 years?

I am looking to mostly sail the east coast of Florida and the Bahamas a couple times a year. I might do some local club races from time to time also but nothing serious.
