Symetrical spinnaker beneteau first 38

Anyone have input on which is the ideal size for this boat. IJPE for this boat is 50.25' / 14.69'/ 44.53'/ 14.53' and LOA of 40'. I got offered a symetrical spinnaker of one and a half ounce cloth that measures from head to clew = 45'8" and the foot =23'5". Cheers for any info.

Ideal luff length is I or slightly longer, ideal foot length is spinnaker pole length x about 1.7
