I know nothing about boats, but I'll be buying one soon and have narrowed it down to two styles. Help me make a choice.

We have a house on a very small lake that isn't big enough for anything other than canoes, paddle boats, kayaks, and small boats. Motors are not allowed (except small trolling motors). Residents around the lake use their small boats to visit other neighbors and take leisurely rides up and down the lake.
We'd like to buy a boat so that our mother, who loves the lake but is scared of water, would feel safe on. So the number one thing we're looking for is stability.
We've found 2 boats that we like, but they're slightly different and I have no idea if one is more stable than the other.
Does anyone knowledgeable regarding boats know if one would be appreciably more stable than the other?
We've already decided against paddle boats, small pontoon boats, etc
