Looking like my previous deal (silverton) has fallen through. I looked at a 1995 Mainship 37 w/twin yanmars, does anyone have this boat who could share their experience? The engines have 1300 hours. Honestly the condition was on OK, needed a clean up as the saloon was dirty. The engines appeared to be in decent shape. I do plan to have a survey done and will also have the engines surveyed. I did notice there was a fiberglass repair done on the outside of the hull about 3 feet from the bottom of the boat. I don't like the way this repair was done as I can see strands of fiberglass that was painted over. I am sure the surveyor will pick this up. In terms of sequence of buying can someone answer these quesions?:
1. Boat is on the hard, should I have it surveyed that way and arrange to have it splash so a sea trail can be performed?
2. Should I do the boat survey first and if all goes will schedule the engine survey?
Here is a link to the boat:
