mildew

My wife and I are looking to buy our first boat. We started working with a broker in the great lakes area. He only had 3 boats in the 30-34 ft. range for us to see.All were1982-1986, Catalinas and others. 30k-35k range

All of these looked pretty beat. All had exterior wood that was completly exposed from wear , decks were yellowing, and the interior on all looked trashed. Cushions worn out and all with bad mildew smells. Both my wife and I have asthma. How easily can the mildew smell be eliminated? And am I expecting too much from an 1986 boat?

Great site! I'm learning alot. Thanks.
