Does this boat look right?

Good evening from Australia!
My friend is looking into a trailer-sailer, this is the one:
tinyurl . com / qfafpbz

I am concerned that this hull has been drastically modified...I wasn't aware of them having a huge drain in the cockpit, a daggerboard or the stern section being open like this...

I thought they only came with pivoting centerboards or a small fixed keel.

Other than these small issues it looks to me like a good deal for a beginner and it seems to have a good wardrobe of sails! My friend is going to go and have a look and I will be coming along...but I thought I would ask of any opinions on here first...
Thanks
Alex
