There was a similar boat bought by a TF member. I`m having trouble finding his posts, but look at this : Halvorsen 42 For Sale.
He posted lots of pics at purchase,was excited about the boat. Later he posted of his disappointment after discovering structural rot due to poor sealing of fittings, stating he would not recommend buying an IG.
I don`t think we worked out who built the boat. From memory it was not Jiang Hua who build Integrity and somehow secured the IG moulds. I do not think later IGs were built by the "Kong & Halvorsen" partnership which originally built boats so branded. All I can say is tread carefully and survey carefully.
A wander through the Halvorsen/IG Builders Section of the site may be rewarding.

Check this one out guys. A deluxe, luxury trawler look with a planing hull and twin diesels, but is that a built-in 60 Yamaha O/B get home engine with a walk-around swim platform? Talk about ease of maintenance. Someone help me believe my eyes!

WOW Larry - That's quite an Aluminum boat! Thanks for showing the link.

400 hp twin Volvo diesels, nearly 1 nmpg at 27 knots... top end of 31 knots. With a good sized get home o/b in walk around swim step! It's basically a large version of my 34' Tolly - On Jumped-Up Steroids!!

Gotta wonder why have a gasoline o/b taking up so much swimstep room when there are two diesel twins aboard?? Also...what happens to handling in a following sea; or, a confused sea? And... outdrives in water all the time?? - That one scares me regarding corrosion and lastability.

For s&g... Video at 2 min 48 seconds shows 48' Tollycraft out the rear window. LOL

Nice. I wonder if it will still plane after we load it up with 2000 of necessary stuff.
I can't see maintaining the 2 inboards with that deck plate access.

But, a nice looking well equiped boat.

The only practical use for the optional outboard is for fishing. You'd need a lot more than the specified 15 gallons of gas for it to reasonably serve as a get-home. I've been on a few of their boats and they are really nice.

Now that I look back I wasn’t really 20 at all. 17 for trip 1 and 29 and 33 for the others.

A quick look at their website discloses that you can get whatever propulsion you want when you order a custom built boat from them. Campbell River has had Daigle Welding (Eagle Craft boats) building top end boats for the fishermen, Pleasure and Commercial, for decades.
An outboard as a trolling motor wouldn't be my choice, but it must work for some.

You are 50 miles up a narrow twisting mountain lined inlet, haven't seen another boat for days, the radio won't work because of the mountains, your main engine dies, and there are no tow services anyway...what to do?

The guy had 2 main engines. The boat includes the option for an outboard for trolling,.
May I suggest maybe just maybe there is a modification they can make to both or one main engine allowing it to be used for trolling.

I was thinking it would be great to have for slow trolling, or easing out of a quiet anchorage without bothering the neighbors.
Or anytime you just need to move the boat a little.
