Others will know better than I, but I believe the general rule is that while less is best, a max draft of 5 feet is not too restrictive.

btw other specs:
LOA 36.5
LWL 29.6
Disp 15,000/15,850
Ballast 5800/6550
SA 665 sq ft
SA/D 17.49
D/L 258.73

Whatever you do be sure to view the boat in question first hand before committing to anything, and arrange for a proper survey before proceeding further.

For an owner to have so little knowledge of 'his own' boat is rather frightening.
