Dean 5000 Vs Knysna 500

Hi guys n girls, For a variety of reasons I'd rather not go into (£ included) we (wife and I) find ourselves being drawn to a choice between the Dean 5000 and the Kynsna 500. Both 50ft, both comfortable cruisers, both seem to have similar hull shapes. Dean is 21tons, Kynsna 13... but with different sail plan sizes. Will that weight difference make a huge difference sailing? (We're circumnavigating) Has anyone suggestions/opinions on why one is better than another?
I've looked at loads over the past few years and have even made arrangements to view specific boats for sale but things got in the way of being able to go forward and I have a window of a couple of months before we settle on a purchase.
