I have little to no concern for that amount of hours on a Lugger. That engine is likely not more than 25% into its service life if properly used. Make a few calls to a couple of Lugger shops - I'm confident they will feel the same way.

I am more concerned with indications of proper, frequent use AND proper maintenance. Review logs, receipts, and records. The dialogue from the seller, the maintenance history, and your observations should all tell the same story.

The boat you refer to is listed with Nordhavn. I have not been a customer yet, but the Nordhavn staff at Dana Point and Seattle have treated us very well. The folks in the Seattle office are very professional and experienced; if you are in the market you should engage with them.
