Look at the Catalac 10M for sale in Florida, it has new sail drives. It's a blue water boat manufactured in England and sailed to America. These boats aren't well known in North America as relatively few were sailed here. A comment made by a surveyor this year said it best. A Catalac is to catamarans what a Hinckley is to monohulls. Solid GRP hull boats with coring only in the foredeck, built like battleships and although 20 years have passed since they have been out of production, just about all of them (over 600) are still sailing.

Check my website for data on Catalac models.

dwightgry Thanks for all the replies! I looked at the Gemini last year at the Miami boat show, and talked to Tony Smith there also. It is a nice boat, but I feel (perhaps wrongly) that it would be better to buy a more "substantial" boat. At present the top contenders are a PDQ 36, Prout 38 (new generation), and a Lagoon TPI 37. These three seem to all have similarities that apeal to me. I will be sailing in the Bahamas this spring on my Pearson 323 and will try to get on board a few cats if the opportunity arises. The purchase timeframe loks to be fall of '09, pending what the whole economy is doing, and the value of the Canuck buck.

Sounds worth a look.

A very, very good, straight from the truth egg.
Not many folks at a boat manufacturer call you back on your cell on sundays to make sure your problem was taken care of. Both Will and Tony Smith have done that for me.

Love the PDQ 36'

I've been watching all the PDQ 36's for sale, even considered making an offer on a PDQ 34' which is the predecessor of the 36. Convinced the 36' is the better boat with extended 'head' room for a shower. Been on Gemini 105 Mc, my brother has one, and I still would hold out for a PDQ. I would insist on a hard dodger/bimini too. There are Wildcats and just saw an "American Multihull" that looks interesting! Plus all the French boats, Pajot, etc. The Canadian PDQ is a solid boat with high quality construction. May also want to check out the older 32' Catfisher, if you're looking for deals. I like the 36' size for 1 or 2.
Waiting for the right deal and the real estate market~

chucklesR I'll second Will's (Whersheld) recommendation on Gemini's, and I don't even work there


I am a tad bit biased, but you can't do better for the money.

Have You Considered a Gemini?

Hi Dwight -

I noticed your post about planning to cruising the Caribbean and that you are considering various cruising catamarans.

Head on over to PerformanceCruising_dot_com or ring me at 410.626.2720 for all the latest on the Gemini 105Mc Cruising Catamaran. I look forward to talking about your plans and how the Gemini might fulfill your requirements.
