Kubota oil pressure

I'm considering purchase of a catamaran with newer Kubota engines. Both are under 500 hours. On a survey done back in April the surveyor noted that oil pressure on the port engine was 40psi at 2100 rpm and 60 at 2000 on the starboard. Both within manufacturer's specs. Is this a big red flag? I will get a new survey if I decide to go ahead, question is should I hire a mechanic for an engine check?
