According to the brochure and my memory, the Gemini Legacy was introduced in 2013. Are you sure you and your friends have had these for 10 years, or do you have a 105MC, which is a boat I very much like.

I am NOT bashing Gemini. There are a lot of cool things about them. I almost bought one and I believe I would have liked it. I have sailed on several.

HISTORY OF GEMINI CATAMARANS
PROUDLY MADE IN AMERICA SINCE 1981
In 1981 the very first Gemini Catamaran was launched
and
at the time no one knew it would start a legacy. With
the introduction of this boat the market experienced the
complete redefinition of the mid-sized performance cruising
boat. There have been more than 1,100 Gemini Catamarans
built since its inception.
In October, 2012 the Gemini Legacy 35 was introduced;
keeping all the best qualities of a Gemini; her narrow beam,
performance sailing ability, and shallow draft, but simplifying
some of the systems to appeal to a cruising family.

If you aren't going to read the thread, I'm not going to repeat myself for you since you've already made your point very clear.

Re: Gemini Legacy 35

The Gemini 105 MC is an excellent boat, but it had to sacrifice a little sail area because they designed it somewhat narrow for a catamaran, in order to fit into standard slips. For that reason, the Legacy wanted to keep that same width, but unfortunately went longer by a couple feet, so likely making it heavier and slower.

I haven't sailed on one, but I've been aboard, and I didn't notice any problems with quality. The layout from the 105 MC was changed so that instead of the owners cabin and head forward, you now have owners cabin and a small guest cabin forward with a very thin wall in between. That means that couples with children would have to be VERY quiet at night... but other than that I didn't see any issues. you can even install an optional second head hidden underneath that guest berth. And I don't think I've seen an owner's berth that had such a great view of the stars.

In my admittedly limited experience, overall it seems like a great boat for coastal cruising. I wouldn't like to cross an ocean in one though. I would prefer the 105 for that.

Re: Gemini Legacy 35

I actually didn't know they still made them. There was a thread on them a few years back along these lines.

Probably a fine intercoastal mostly motor cat.i doubt outboard would help the sailing much. Probably just make you wish you had diesels.

But order one up with outboards, maybe Honda 15s or the new 9.9 fuel injected Tohatsu and report back.
