I wouldn't be skared to own one.

Best advice id hire a boat surveyor to go through the boat and have a mechanic check out the engine and drive.

Things to look out for. Being glass the hull can develop soft spots. A surveyor will look for those. He'll look at the stringers to see if they aren't rotted out too. The transom is wood up against a glass outer shell. If water has gotten in between the wood and glass that transom will rot.

A glass boat is pretty much two pieces, a top and bottom. That seam will have to be checked out. Those are few things he'll inspect. He won't look at the engine or drive and that you'll need a mechanic to look over.
