It looks like mold which isn't a great problem by itself. But it is also an indication of neglect. I would check the whole boat for possible issues, buy or borrow a moisture meter and determine how the cored (most likely) decks are. I hope the price is very low as the owner didn't exactly prep it for sale.

Let us know the results.

Here's a link to the purchase and use of a moisture meter by MaineSail:
