Default Advice Needed: Outboard Engine Conversion


Apologies in advance if I'm not using the correct terminology - I'm completely new to the world of boating. I'm planning to purchase a new boat soon, and I've found a Cruiser Yacht 280 cxi (2007 model) that's had a conversion from inboard engines to outboard engines done - 2 x 200 Yamaha 2017 engines (20 hours running). I love the boat, it's well maintained and I'm getting the local Yamaha team to inspect the engines.*

One concern was raised by a friend is that due to the change in weight/centre of gravity shift, the boat may not run as well on the water and may experience "bouncing" - is this common for boats converted to outboards?*

I'd like anyone with experience of this kind of conversion to give me some advice as to what kind of problems I should look out for (detailed explanation would be useful - I have no practical experience), what issues I may face and whether there will be any impact on handling, performance, efficiency, etc.?

I'm planning to go for a drive/sail/cruise (not sure of the correct term here) on Thursday, so any advice you could give me before then would be greatly appreciated.

Let me know if you need more details.
