volvo md7a question

Curious if someone can tell me about this motor.. I am looking at a US yachts 30 equipped with it, and it is the original motor; the boat is around 30 years old.

She has lived in salt water her whole life as far as I know, and I was told by the owner there are no anodes; he also mentioned that the water lines are thicker to help withstand corrosion.

I am mechanically inclined but not familiar with the motor.. if anyone could give me some info or a heads up on what to look for problem-wise when I go see it that would be appreciated..

Thank you
