Deck mounted spars

I am looking into two different boats: passport vista 545 and the amel 55 (after hearing about it here). The passport has a keel mounted mast and from what I can see in pictures the amel is deck mounted with supports to the keel. I tried to do a search and didn't have much luck so I will ask the question. What is the benefit of one over the other...mast steps that is.
