Things to look for: soft spots on the deck, water intrusion into the cabin (specifically around the chainplates,) Sail condition... sails are a big part of the boats value. Also, one thing that has given me some clues about a boats condition is weather or not there are good records kept IE: oil change receipts, sail repair work, etc. Of course, a qualified surveyor will give you a full report on the boat and that is the way to go. Good Luck!
