Quality of boats that sit vs sail

I took a look at 35', 10 year old production boat with 350 hours. It has only been used by the current owner five times in the last 2 years. 3 times under motor alone. Has new sails, new bottom paint, all new glass in the hatches. Basically it was just used as a cottage a few weekends per year.

Are their issues that can arise when boats are not used? I would think it may just be a big mystery until a new owner sailed it for a good 20 hours or so.
