What and How to learn a boat's history?

In the midst of a search for my first real sailboat, I am wondering what is the best way to research a boat's history? Is there anything that equates to carfax in the boating world? Can the HIN lead me to any information that might be helpful? If the boat is with a brokerage, can I expect to learn anything about previous owners?
