Exclamation First Purchase

I am looking for some input on purchasing a Beneteau..... I am relatively new to sailing and have never owned a boat. It has been a desire for many years to own my own sailboat. Ultimately I want to end up living on it. In the mean time I will be sailed in the great lakes. I want to be able to entertain comfortably with friends for week long trips down to 1-2 friends for day sails.
I currently crew on a Kelt 29.

I believe I want a Beneteau 393 or a first 407...or there abouts. I like both of these boats for different reasons. My gut tells me the First is the way to go...

I will be taking a course at Humbar College. Incidentally they use a Beneteau 393, so I will get the chance to sail one there.

All feedback would be greatly appreciated!!!
