Exactly right Jeff...though more than a fair number went directly into charter as Dick Jachney was both the US Hylas distributor and the owner of CYC yacht charters out of St. Thomas which exclusively used Hylas boats. Since the OP name is SAILUSVI I figured there's more than a fair chance that he is looking at one of those boats!
In addition to the things Jeff mentioned...I'd make darn sure the keel & attachment is solid as well as there were some reefs along the entrance to their Red Hook base...(don't ask how I know!...I wasn't always this perfect!)
