The wooden masts are another thing. And the whole superstructure looks like it's wood.
No wonder nobody is buying it...
Aaa... according to ebay 71 bidders disagreed with you and she sold for 10.1K.

Here is another boat you would have a problem with. It's very similar to my Slocum 37 less all the teak on deck. She had 67 bids and sold for 10.7K.

TAYANA T37 Pilothouse Ketch in Sailboats | eBay Motors

The notion that boats in that era or for that matter this era should have just modern hardware is ludicrous. Everything out there is on the menu concerning what you want on a boat or how you want it to look.

Are there any multihulls that will self-right at all, after a capsise?

How far over can a multi go before she goes mast down?

All moot questions, until the OP gets some sailing time and does a whole lot of research. Whatever the choice ends up to be, fair winds and a friendly sea!
The same number as there is monos that will self float after a sinking
