Exclamation Can you run a Yanmar w/ turbo out?

I am looking at a boat that has a Yanmar JH4-TE Turbo 55HP engine in it. I was told that the turbo has been bypassed? This is because it is blown. They replaced the turbocharger once, but the oil cooler was not replaced and the turbo blew again... So then they bypassed the turbo and brought the boat from the Bahamas all the way up to N. Carolina. Should I be concerned???
Is the fact that the oil cooler is the problem cause the oil to burn and overheat? Would the turbo going out cause metal to enter crankcase oil? Sounds like it is not a good move, I am just wondering what damage could occur and how I can tell what all is wrong!!!
