Gemini

Aren't also Gemini cats produced in the US by Performance Cruising in Annapolis, MD?

Yup PDQ is based in the old Whitby Boat Works. I think there used to be a cat builder out in the East Coast but can't locate them any more.

Of course, was just at the Performance Cruising yard when we did a test sail of the Leopard 46.

Manta and gemini. The people that own them love them.

Gemini, built by Performance Cruising, in Annapolis, Md., claims to be the largest cruising catamaran manufacturer in the U.S. I own one, and love it.

Advertised in Multihulls magazine every month is the Ocean Cat 49, a previous member solicited comments, with no response. Visiting the web site the appetite is wetted except for vague descriptions that do not specify the materials involved. Has anybody been on one of their yachts and can comment?

Most american cats are either heavy or deep draft. which really hurt the performance. I am looking for such a vessel.
40 ft with 4 queens and 2 heads and also some exciting sailing

Well, I certainly am in awe of a guy who's checkbook balance has lots of zeros in it,

For starters there's always the Gunboat 48 at $1.3MM . Or course some could argue that African Cats Fastcat 435 has a better layout at roughly the same price € 900.000 ($1.3MM)

or how about a Dolphin 46 at $725,000

or a Catana 431. A steal at $425,000

Performance costs $$$
