Buying First Yacht

I know about the importance of a survey, but when making up an offer for a boat what kinds of subjects are prudent to include? I don't want to offer someone 100 grand and find out later I should have...

Also, is a mechanical survey different than the overall survey? What I mean is do I get a different surveyor for the mechanicals than for the hull? SHould a good surveyor be able to do both? Or do I just get a marine mechanic to look at it.
We will be making an offer on a CS 36T. Kicking out the kids, selling the house, and moving aboard. Somebody pinch me.
