Subject: Seamaster 27 Bilge outlet

We're new here, so please excuse the stupid questions (we are boating novices).

We've just purchased a 27ft Seamaster (Orlanda) it was once called Suzy Wong I believe if that rings any bells with anyone. Anyhow, It's got a new engine (Beta Marine) and all the electrics look pretty tidy. There are however a few things we may need some advice regarding.

The bilge pump and plumbing all look a bit dodgy - is it normal for this model to have it's bilge outlet at almost below water level (or is this maybe due to it having a new (heavier?) engine. Is this something we should be worried about?

Also, the Paloma(SP?) water heater thing is not working, I have been quoted between 600-1400 to have a calorifier fitted & plumbed into the existing shower / sinks - if there is anyone in the lower Thames area that is known to be able to do this kind of work for us I'd appreciate a recommendation as we'd like to get this sorted over the winter. The massive variation in quotes seems a bit odd, but I don't know if this is private Vs boat yard prices or if there are loads of different types/sizes which may account for the price difference.

Thanks in advance for any advice!
