WDS123 is on a distinguished road
Since the hull appears to be solid lay-up ( no core ) - the only key issue will be to check for evidence of bilster repair. Unlikely, but worth a careful check especially around waterline.

deck is cored so you will really want to spend a lot if tIme examine the deck hardware for evidence of leaks and poor bedding - if the deck core has water damage - think very hard before buying

There are a fair number of DIY checklists on the web which would be useful for a pre-surveyor look
