You summed it up pretty well. The Jeanneau is going to be spacious and better for entertaining. It will sail better in light wind. There will be a lot less bright work to maintain.
The Baba is heavily constructed and finely built boat that is better suited for a couple with occasional guest. To keep the bright work maintained (while cursing in the tropics anyway) is a lot of work. Baba's are comfortable in weather when a lot of other boats feel that it's getting 'rough out.'
For short handed blue water cruising I would go with the Baba. For sailing with a crew of 4 or more I would go with the Jeanneau.
