I have built many trimarans of that size and larger. The best thing I see that this boat has going for it is that the hulls are molded glass. If you view the purchase as that of three hulls ,a rig and possibly other reuseable parts, you will have a better idea of what you could easily be up against. The smaller Pivers were not that great of designs. If you got the boat for free ,know how to build and restore boats, and did all of the work yourself following accepted practices, you could still end up with easily $15,000 and a lot of time in the project. What's your time worth? What else is on the market at even $15,000? My apology to you Piver fans out there, but to steal a phrase from another thread on a similar topic, RUN!!!
