Congratulations , lovely boats.
My advice is to check the seacocks and through hull fittings have been renewed. The originals are not very good quality and it would be a shame if the boat sank.
It,s not over till the fat lady drowns

Congratulations!
Great boat, well built, fast & easy to handle;
my advice is to change seacocks and through hull with new in bronze.
Chek the rudder shaft too (corrosion).

Make sure the engine is checked over, oil change, filters checked, keep spares on board as you do not know condition of fuel in tank. Get the exhaust elbow checked for blockage if there are many hours on the clock ( be aware that Volvo clocks are renowned for packing up so may not read correct hours), the impellor on the sea water pump renewed, it may have been sitting idle for some time & have a spare ready. The heat exchanger cleaned & check for pieces of old impellor, calcium etc stuck in it. Flush through with fresh water & replenish anti freeze.
When changing the oil in saildrive  (if it is a Volvo) make sure you put a new washer on the drain plug of the correct type as water can get into the oil. (cost me an emergency lift out  when on holiday due to this!!!) Check all the controls are all greased or lightly oiled. Some boats have had linkages break at in opportune moments. Check hoses for signs of cracking near hose clips, I had a small drip that let a lot of water in over time.
 The exhaust will have a vacuum valve to break the seal which, if it is a Volvo, will always drip. There is a pipe leading to the space under the engine & one has to mop this up. This is annoying.. Divert the hose to a plastic 5 litre bottle to collect the water then you can pour it down the sink if you find there is a lot.

Great boat. You will have lots of fun sailing her. Keep us posted on how it goes
