Gemini Cats

Anybody living on a Gemini, i would love to hear your comments as thinking of doing the same , but a little concerned with the amount of water slap n the hulls and the flexing of the body,i was in 32 knots of wind and 3-5 foot chop on a trial sail and felt like being battered to pieces and was thinking of how much punishment the hulls can take.

Living on board a Gemini...

Hi Huggi21,

I lived aboard a Gemini 105 MC for four years. We lived mainly in Florida in the intercoastal in an anchorage inside a cove, so sea conditions we not an issue. We also had it in the Caribbean and in most places it was fine. The hull slap was sometimes a bit annoying in choppier waters, but overall I loved the experience living aboard my Gem. Here are a couple of things I can impart to you:

(1) The Gemini 105MC is made from a single hull mold. So nothing is bolted on. So she will take any beating the seas can give her.

(2) It was a great boat to live on. A covered cockpit, 6 foot headroom in the cabins, solor powered with a backup generator. The Gem also has lots of storage space inside.

(3) Great for corwded marinas because of her slender beam. Also great for shallow waters. If need be, you simply can just beach her like a small boat.

I had a great time living aboard with my significant other and our son. We upgraded to a bigger cat, but still love the Gemini. You should go for it!

We found the Gemini a very user friendly livable cat. My main complaint, bridgedeck slamming at anchor.
