Yard Work

I’m thinking of putting an offer on a 45’ sailboat on the east coast of Florida that needs a refurb. The hull and deck are in pretty good shape but I want to re-do most of the interior. I’m looking at it taking 3 to 6 months. My plan was to do all the work at a yard in Florida but have been told that yards require that you buy all materials from them. Is this true? Does this mean everything from hardware to gensets to radios? This will be my first time working in a yard so have no idea of what the “norm” is. Any advice would be great. JC
