Also, has any maintenance been done on the engine. If not...then 1250 hours may be way too long...

A well-maintained engine with a lot of hours can be worth more than a poorly-maintained engine with far fewer. As PBzeer has pointed out, engine use and load is also important...just like a car that has mainly been driven on the highway has an engine in better shape generally than one used in city traffic, the diesel that has been used to move a boat primarily is often in better shape than one used just to top off the batteries.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
