direct drive

Hi everybody;

I'm boat shopping and was looking at a 2001 jeanneau so 37 that said the shaft is direct drive.
I'm wondering if there are transmissions or drives that I should be careful with?
Does direct drive mean the prop turns at the same speed as the engine?
Thanks for any info.

Jim.
