That's exactly right. Be glad it is acceptable to do such a detailed inspection when buying a boat. Losing these monies is much less than the cost of a lemon.

It's not complicated at all. It's just run-of-the-mill CYA. You cover yourself when you buy a house. You cover yourself when you buy a car. Why shouldn't you cover yourself when you buy a boat? I really don't see any problem with this. It's done all the time for major purchases.
The cover in each of these isn't nearly the guarantee of the yacht/survey rights. Find one yu like, hire a surveyor and press forward.
