I think they very good. We dont own one (yet) but have crawled around quite a few and they're a great boat. They may not be finished off like some of the other cats, but they are just as well built. For the money, you cant go wrong. Also there has never been a claim on a Motion so you can get insurance and it's not bad at all for a cat. Give Larry Goldman a call if you havn't already. He most likely knows the boat your looking at by he rigged 95% of them out there.
