C&C 26 with 10' beam

I have been looking at small used cruising boats in the 25-30' range.

The late 70s C&C 26 is an unusually beamy boat for C&C at 10'. It seems as if beam on most boats is usually about 1/3 of overall length.

What likely effects would this have on performance and the sailing characteristics of the boat? (I am not interested in racing).
