Sunseeker XS Sport

My first post here.

I am interested in some information on the Sunseeker xs Sport with the TriMax surface drive.

My daughter's boyfriend wants to buy a secondhand XS Sport and bring it to Thailand, where they live. He works in the offshore industry and stays home every second month. I will be retired in Thailand next year and I keep my Hurricane 733 rib there.
The family expect me to keep an eye on the Sunseeker, dock and refuel it, lift if, put on the trailer etc. I realized that I would be using the boat while the daughter's boyfriend is away working.

I have never used an inboard boat and the Racing TriMax drive scares me. I read that it is very difficult to maneuver the boat in the marina, that the stepped hull needs to be driven in a special manner and it is very demanding.

I have a several questions to the board members:
1. Is it possible to install bow and stern thrusters?
2. I see on the pictures that there are only bolsters for the driver and navigator. Is it possible to install the shock absorbing seats like my Ullman's?
3. The range looks limited. Is it possible to place a spare fuel tank in the hull without destroying the balance?
4. There no windlass for the anchor. Is that correct.

Thank you
