VAT on new boats sold as a a live aboard

I have decided to buy a Brayzel 45 x 10 dutch style boat. It was on show at Crick. I often see boats marketed as no VAT, can you advise or point me in the right direction. Also in terms of payment. Andrew at Brayzel, suggested a large deposit, but I have decided to pay for the boat apart from the final extras, ie I'll own what I see at the moment, so I own the boat, in the unlikely case they go bust. I presume I don't need a survey just some pre-hand-over checks, and RCD,Dec of Conf. Is that a reasonable approach? Many thanks,
Michael

Squeal from engine

When I start my narrowboat engine - a Lister Petter - there's a very loud squeal from it. The rev counter doesn't register. After a few minutes the noise stops and the rev counter comes to life. Lately the noise has been lasting longer. What might the problem be? I thought it was the fan belt slipping but it looks fine.
