Don't ever give one second thought to a broker's pressure.

Never fall in love with a sailboat until after you own it. There are always others.

The only other contingency I would consider is that you can get it insured, if you intend to insure it. This can be a bigger issue with larger boats, as your experience is going to dictate that as much as the boat's condition. However, condition is on your radar with the survey already anyway.

Jeanneau 54DS

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
