Looking for opinions on the 77' Columbia 8.7

I am looking for a stateside boat in this size range. Looking to use the boat mainly on inland waterways, ICW transit, and some coastal cruising, also as a liveaboard. I like the general layout of the boat and it seems to be in fairly good condition. The one thing I do not like about the boat, is it powered by an Atomic 4 with roughly 900 hours on it. If my research is correct, the 77' model was one of the last to be built by columbia before they went under. The later models were built by Howard Hughes Corp it seems and some adjustments were made, mostly interior.

If anyone could give me some opinions on this boat for a coastal cruiser type, I would greatly appreciate it.
