I'd get the newer boat. For your type of sailing the Beneteau would be better. A boat built in 81 will require a lot of upkeep sooner than later, standing rigging, running rigging, engine ( I note you said most of the major engine parts have been rebuilt), electrical system, water pumps etc. The real question is which one do you prefer. If you have a spouse which one does she prefer? Buying a boat is a very personal choice. Go with how you feel, not the advice of those that will never sail in it.
