buying a catamaran (sp?)

We are looking at buying a 1981 Pivor-Cross Trimaran catamaran. The vessle need some work but for the most part just cosmetic. Anyone have a boat like this or know where I can see inside pics of this vessle?

thanks

Any luck with a google search? Good place to start if you haven't already.

Yes we did a google search. Nothing. I have emailed Jeff and found out there is no Piver-Cross as it was listed on ebay. Is it OK to post the link to the ebay ad here so maybe someone would know what this boat is??

Piver is a very early design

May well be a good boat if properly constructed but many were home made so BEWARE!
Cross was a later designer I thought and had not heard of any collaberation with Auther Piver.

Be very careful about expected resale on an older piver design. You might look around for a Jim Brown 'Searunner' tri. Bit better pedigree/resale.

Chris White's book, the Cruising Multihull, the Multihull Buyer's Guide and the Practical Sailor, two-volume, boat buying guide are good books to look at.

It would pay for you to do a good deal of research before looking at boats, to find what is really going to be a suitable boat for you, rather than just looking at boats.

Some multihull designs are very poor and gave all multihulls a bad reputation.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
