I just saw your post and thought I would reply as I picked up a 44o yesterday. Mine was lying for a year with the cover off so needed a bit of cleaning and sorting out. I paid £1500 but the owner was asking £2000. I think I got a bargain as long as the engine is ok. The picture was taken after half a days cleaning.
The 440 is rated for a maximum of 50hp. Not sure if the bigger engine would be a problem.
It looks very fresh in the pictures, have the tubes been repainted?
There seems to be very little info online about this age of Hurricane but they certainly seem to be very well built commercial boats.
Did you buy it?
