I don't think you need to sea-trial that specific boat. See if there's already one in the water nearby, and ask if you can go for a ride. That'll help you understand the sailing characteristics of the boat without needlessly launching your prospective purchase.

On the other hand, if your reason for a sea trial is so that you can put the engine, rigging and sails under a load, then that won't help you. I dunno...$5-8k is where I personally draw the line at requesting a sea-trial, especially if I'm paying for the launching.
