Blown head gasket Westerbeke BC437-42hp

I am seriously looking ay buying a boat that has a engine with a blown head gasket. I am familiar with Perkins 4108 on my Morgan and did have to take the head off to replace fuel tank as,I needed the room to pass.

Westerbeke BC437-42hp (not operating-blown head gasket)
The price of the boat is right it I am worried that I will be into a rebuild at least and a repower at worst. Does anyone have experience replacing a head gasket on a westerbeke and if so what was the story. Was it simply just that or was it much more?
what to do what to do? Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated .
