Beneteau 32s5 PHRF rating

My current boat search is leading me towards the 32s5. However, when I look at the performance ratios of this boat to the others on my list like the Frers 33, S2 10.3 and the Ericson 33, its very similar and in some cases better but with a PHRF rating of 144. its rated at 20 to 40 sec. per mile slower than the others. Is this just a sweet rating or does the boat have a problem sailing to its potential. Any thoughts.
