The Gemini catamaran has had several incarnations... IIRC, the Gemini 3000 was produced from 1981-1990, with about 150 boats made. The Gemini 3200 was roduced from 1990-1993, with about 100 boats built. The Gemini 3400 was produced from 1993-1996, and about 44 of them were made. The Gemini 105M was made from 1996-2003, and the Gemini 105Mc was introduced in 2003.
If you're looking at a boat from 1997-2000, it would have to be a Gemini 105M, not a 3200 or 3400. The Gemini 3000 was 30' 6" LOA, the 3200 was 32', the 3400 was 33' 2", and the 105M and 105Mc are 33' 6" LOA.
The major difference between the 105M and the 105Mc is the way the interior is constructed IIRC. The hull design was changed between the 3400 and the 105M and increased the load carry capacity of the boat significantly, and made the boat a bit larger.
While I have never owned one, I have sailed on the 3000, 105M and 105Mc. There is a pretty significant difference between the 3xxx series boats and the 105xx series boats IMHO.
For your purpose, the boat would be an excellent choice IMHO.

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.
