We've had one for 5+ years now and absolutely happy.

Rock solid, proper Fairline quality. We went for one in perfect condition even though it did not have electronic controls and upgraded electronics. So glad we did.

Check if the woodwork is crazed due to too much heating or too much dehumidification. Can be fixed easily, though. Same for most small woodwork issues. Dehumid shoud be humidistat controlled and not set too dry.

We added coppercoat and dripless seals... would strongly recommend those too.

Check service history.... some filters on SB side are difficult to get to and may have been skipped.

Teak may be laminated and need replacing.

Only issue is drains from flybridge run out.over the cockpit.cover causing them to go green.. Fit some ducting to extend them outwards - easy DIY job

Well
Just bought one that need a lot of polishing and care. Has been neglected for along time. Some hard work will get in perfect condition again.
