It looks like a lot of boat for the money
As with all major purchases having a survey
by an experienced independent surveyor
, having the engine
and mechanicals checked by an experienced marine mechanic
and having the rigging
checked by an experienced rigger is essential.
If you can get a builder's certificate for the boat showing the layup
of the hull
and the type, positioning and weight of the ballast so much the better.
Any offer should be subject to satisfactory survey
and checks and you should have a considerable amount in reserve as repairs
to a boat this size can be very expensive.
Do keep in mind that the boat is 30 years old.
