Oa 390

My partner and I are about to sign on the dotted line for a 1988 AO390. With twin Vovlo's 71a.
We have authorised a survey and oil analysis, the boat needs a full navigations upgrade.
Is there anything else we should be aware of ??
The boats in Corfu at present.
Charlie

Read the current fuel tank thread. Then assess if tanks have been subjected to deck leaks, standing water top or bottom, low annual fuel use - meaning stagnant fuel and are rusty.

Secondly, go to the boat diesel site and read about the engines. Good luck.
