Default Yanmar Diesel Smokes

I have two questions.

1. I am looking to purchase a boat and would like a recommendation for a Yanmar diesel surveryor/mechanic near Venice.

2. Why would engines smoke?

It has two Yanmar 6LY-UTE they begin smoking when you hit about 1800 rpms? Air cleaner is dirty, engines a little dirty and soot in engine room. Motors run good and sound fine, although I saw them they had already been started earlier that day so I do not know how they start when cold.

Boat is part of estate as of January and was last used around thanksgiving 2019. Prior to that is was used every two to three months for a week at a time. Appears to have been well maintained.

Thanks for the input.
