Seeking Bavaria Ocean 40 feedback

Is there anything in particular I should be concerned about or pay specific attention to regarding the Bavaria Ocean 40 model? I welcome and look forward to any opinions (either via this forum or direct message). I was a little curious why this older model wasn't even listed on Bavaria's website. My primary intended use is spending a lot of time sailing in local bays and coastal cruising. From what I see I think it would be a great fit. I've read many posts on the level of interior finish (I'm fine with the interior exactly as is). I'm more interested in any safety, structural, or specific problem areas for this boat. e.g. I haven't heard of any keel issues on the ocean 40 but has anyone else? The seacocks are of a type I've never seen before and I'm not sure what material they are made from (it doesn't seem like bronze). Thank you in advance.
