Choose a 4... cat

Dear Cruisers,
with my father we are ready to move forward, so we are considering buying a new catamaran for personnal use (long weekend cruise during spring and long cruise around the Med during vacation).
Considering our budget, we are focused on the 42/46 ft cats.
So we have the helia44, the Lagoon 42/45 and the Nautitech 46.
We plan to visit the boats during Le Grand Pavois.
Is there some specific items we should look at / take care carefully on those boats in terms of construction, equipment...? As an exemple i read that the Helia and Nautiitech has sacrificial keels while Lagoons has not. Is this a major difference? I know that i will have a commercial speech during the show but i want other point of view.
