old boat wiring

i did a bit of searching, but i wasn't able to really find what i was looking for.

the boats that i'm looking at (catalina 27's) are mostly from the 70s. i'm wondering what kind of a job should be done on a cheaply made boat from the 70s to prepare the wiring for the reliability and safety required for living aboard? will this include a new breaker board? all new wires? re-doing connecions? new outlets? or will it be a purely scenario based job just depending on the particular boat? i figured someone may have had enough experience to generalize what quality and effectiveness of wiring to expect.

perhaps this is not the right question, but forgive me. the only boat i've owned before this was a force 5, and it's wiring was in a different league
