used Moorings Beneteau?

I''m thinking of buying a used Moorings Beneteau 43. It looks like I can get this boat at a reduced cost, about 50,000. Bucvalu.com says it should sell for 79,900 to 87,000. I''m sure the boat has been abused and is in need of repair.

What things should I be looking for? I know this is a broad question but I''m looking for pointers to things most people wont expect even in a used boat.
Is there anything I should look for that an inspection might miss?

used Moorings Beneteau?

Practical Sailor did a review last month on this very subject. If you can get your hands on a copy of this, it would be very helpful.

Used Beneteau

I'd say have a mechanic give the engine a good going through. Have the compression checked. Charter people tend to rum the engine a lot to keep batteries charged, and when you only have a week... I bought a 383 out of the Moorings fleet in La Paz. It's been great with just the usual wear and tear. The engine has about 4800 hrs on it and has pereformed well with regular service. If you need any specific info drop me a line.

What's with this current trend of replying to 4+ year old posts? It's safe to assume that the beat-up Mooring's Beneteau has been sold by now.

I don't see a problem with it in general

If the question is still unanswered it may very well be helpful to have someone chime in even four years later. It's not likely that it'll be helpful to the original poster, but like many posts, it will be helpful to someone else. Just my 2 cents.

I agree with abarr. Sometimes the posting is old but if the question is still unanswered then what is the problem. I don't even notice the dates I jus analyze the information. If it is helpful information, who cares how old the original posting is.
