It's been said that the measure of how well suited a boat is for you is the length of time it takes for you to row away from it. If you stop every three strokes to admire it, you've got the right one. The two boats you are looking at are sooo different, I think you need to decide what look appeals to you most. If you really like the teaky traditional look, the Bene is not for you. On the other hand, as others have noted, your maintenance will be less, and you will enjoy more space and "new" thinking with the Bene. Not to mention the near 20 yrs difference in age. If performance is an issue, this requires a careful look at the numbers too.
