Pros:
Cons:

sloop rigged catamaran, centerboards in each hull allow shallow draft of 3 feet when raised, rudders kick up to an 18 inch draft, 14 foot beam allows easy docking, transport or haul out. boat is only 7500 lbs. perfect for the chesapeake bay. I consider it the volksagen of sailboats. weaknesses are that it does not handle chop very well. very satisfied for bay cruising.

Pros: Excellent coastal cruiser. Can be equipped for long distance voyages.
Cons: Low bridge-deck causes pounding. Limited water capacity.

We have lived aboard our Gemini 105Mc for the past 5 years. We have traveled from Annapolis, MD to Bocas del Toro, Panama. To meet our needs, we have equipped AngelHeart with a Katadyne 160 g/d watermaker, Iridium satellite phone, ICOM-802 SSB, and changed the factory batteries to two 200 amp hour AGMs with a Freedom Combi 1500 watt inverter/charger. We have 3 50 watt solar panels and a KISS wind generator. We also have a Honda 2000 watt generator. For getting to and from shore we have an Apex A-11 RIB with a Honda 20 hp 4-stroke outboard. We have 4 20 lb. fiberglass propane tanks. These have two advantages: 1. NO RUST and 2. you can see propane level. Boat has propane refridgeration, so limiting factor for anchoring out is propane. I installed a dual regulator that automatically switches tanks when one runs dry. A red "button" shows it's time to change the empty tank. This keeps the fridge cold when a tank runs dry. A tank usually lasts about 2 weeks at anchor.

All in all, the Gemini is an economical, comfortable, roomy, coastal cruiser with good sailing characteristics and great manueverabilty with the steerable drive leg.
