If a trial run were out of the question. I would Talk to the owner and ask for any service records and or repair invoices on said boat. Ask reason for selling etc. If the boat seemed to have had a lot of repairs or shop calls. I would have a competent mechanic inspect it for me. I would also talk to the tech who did any repairs on a given boat if possible build a history on the boat, and go from there. Steer clear of people who seem uneasy or skirt your questions without giving solid answers. Good Luck
