Used Club Nautico Vessel - Sale Info

My wife and i put an offer in on a 2000 380 Hunter Sailboat.
the boats first owner was the Club Natico and has had other owners. The price seems right. But it has an awful lot of visual wear and tear i.e. Sails are worn and frayed, halyards are browning (could be just crust), rubber grommets are brittle and break like glass to the touch, the wooden cabinets needs light sanding and re-oiling, etc, etc, in general the new owner just didn't take care of things... we can probably get things in order but wonder if it is wise to just go on to the next boat and not have to worry when we are out at sea about some hose or fitting that we missed to replace or fix....and yes we will have it surveyed .... any suggestions here,,,, thankx for your answers....

most charter boats can be measured in "dog years"... one year in charter is like 4, 5, 6, or 7 in regular owner use.

Had a 36' in charter ONE year and it looked like 10 years wear and tear..never again.

Personally, I would look at an older, well kept, owner boat and ignore the charter boats. As a matter of fact, I did.

Survey will only show what can be seen...but for sure get a good one
