It depends what your needs are as far as the space, SPEED, and garage space. Decked out FTD might get you into a Classic if the garage will hold it. Think of all your needs before you decide on one particular boat(but keep the same BRAND)...Hope this helped some.
Not sure you can keep everything "equal" unless things have changed. The FTD used to come standard with a bunch more than the standard Sabre. You would have to contact a dealer and literally build them to see what you want. The FTD is more boat, I'd expect at least a couple grand more. That's a WILD GUESS so contact your dealer.
