The Gemini 105MC is an excellent choice for a catamaran that size. It is relatively inexpensive, and the owners association is fairly active. The modest beam does allow it to fit in some marina slips. It is also capable of bluewater passages, and is in EU RCD category A, which is Ocean rated.

IIRC, an air draft over 52' will cause significant problems on the ICW. Air drafts of less than that are generally okay though.

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.
