well going to yarmouth,to look at a arvor 215,away at 6am this morning:D
Good luck, remember unless it’s an absolute peach. Don’t buy the first one you see. Try to take the heart out of the viewing and put your practical head on.
you know where to go for arvor advice !

On the other hand... each time I've been boat hunting I've bought the first example I've viewed. Do your research first and call the seller and chat with him/her and discuss every aspect of the boat and get all your questions answered ahead of any viewing. Then, if you do go to view, you shouldn't be in for any nasty surprises (in theory!). You can also suss out the seller during your interactions with them. If anything smells fishy, you can save yourself the trip to view.

Nice boat! Walk around wheelhouse? The smaller arvors were all wheelhouse and no deck space, your boat looks perfect!!!

The 210 and 215 are the same boat just slightly different topside layout, patio doors etc. I think the smaller model was the 190. This still has a decent deck area, maybe you were thinking of the small quicksilver models like the 500, this was a lot of wheelhouse on a small boat.
