Sea Chase Cat, or similar large cat...?

Hello from Florida.

A friend of mine is considering this big cat:

He asked me for advise, but knowing nothing about multihulls, I resepctfully turn the question over to the board:

Understand this is one of a kind, and therefore no comparison on price or market value is available?

We also are unsure about the quality of construction as this boat is "unknown".

(Yes I surveyor will go over it with a microscope for sure)

What other "brands" of cats in this size range could be used for comparison?

The boat looked pretty good when we inspected her yesterday, light use and not much wear and tear.
The engines are both overhauled with new trannys.

This monohull guy thinks the 48 HP Yanmars are on the light side for a big vessel, but perhaps cats are light enough so that the this is "normal" size engines for a multihull?

Any advice on the above would be much appreciated.

I'm no expert, But..............

The ad says nothing about the weight or construction other then it's fiberglass. But it looks like there is some real fine work on the interior which is a good sign. Can't tell what type of hull she has but looks like the typical symmetrical, round-builge and tunnel with a deep forefoot. It is probably a custom built for an individual.
As for engines, that seems about right in relation to a lot of other Cats out there. Cats don't need a lot of power. They sit on top of the water.
