Welcome aboard

Same things to look at with any boat; test all things to ensure they function, lights, radio, head, microwave,....

Get a survey, we’ll worth the money to have someone who does this regularly inspect the boat.

Verify the engine(s) can achieve their rate WOT. Inspect all fluids for level and color.

So what did this boat sell for new? I looked at the boat today. Will have a survey done, but it looks nice.

I would use several boat buying search engines such as yachtworld, boat trader, ... to see what others are listing this model for verses the condition. This will give you a ballpark number but note this does not mean they get their asking price as most will sell for a few $1K less. The results of the survey will also give you negotiating leverage.
