Surveying New Boats?

I'm about to purchase a new 36" boat from a dealer in my home port. Does anyone have experience with the worth of putting a survey and sea trial contingency on a new boat purchase?
I understand that a survey can cost upwards of $500, but on an investment of this size, I'm thinking it might be worth it. There is a warranty offer, but what are the chances that a survey might uncover unintended failures BEFORE they create trouble?
Or is that just too much caution at too great of an expense, given the purchase context?
