New Gemini Legacy 35

It looks like they added some to the stern so it's mostly a stretched version, I think. It does come with twin diesels and a square topped main. Can't find any specs yet.

Re: New Gemini Legacy 35

Looks great. The cockpit looks much better and I live the twin drives. I wonder what the price is going to be?

I might have to take a hard look at this instead of getting a large mono. Was going to try and save $100k, but hell since you can't take it with you, you might as well spend it something fun.

I got the email as well and it really looks nice.

yeah I see it too. But if it has twin diesels ... Will it still have on only 18 inches of draft (or there a bouts) ? The ability to sail in skinny water ? And will it still have centerboards or fixed keels ? ANd will the head finally have a separate shower stall that one can actually stand up in and shower ?

Re: New Gemini Legacy 35

* More wieght in the stern, thus the added length. Probably couldn't add anything other than some cockpit length. It's just a foot.
* No more backstay with a true square top. Thus the big genny will be hard to tension. We'll see how they handle this. Perhaps a smaller genny and increased reliance on the reacher.
* More drag (can't lift drives), thus the bigger main.
* Higher price, I'm sure. But how much...?

And so the Gemini will slowly become more like other cats? Interesting. This boat was always about compromises, and those were both its great strength and its weakness. But since the whole yacht (and housing) industry is finding greater profits in bigger everything, I understand.

Re: New Gemini Legacy 35

It would be interesting to see to see a floor plan of the 2 plans. I guess there going for the rental market, I bet the aft beds have room for a 6 ft + person with , like my buddy's feet size 13's. Look at the bow where there is a large hump hanging between the hulls? I wonder where the fuel and water are located. I do like the traveler located on the cockpit dodger. I like our screecher and track instead of a center located code zero. I guess I need to see one in person.

Re: New Gemini Legacy 35

It has dual Yanmar 15hp's diesels. Great they went with the norm in powerplants.

Re: New Gemini Legacy 35

Saw it on the water 2 weeks ago. Looked to have near zero clearance under the cockpit bridgedeck area under power. Obviously light ship with no cruising gear as well. I'm sure it will be backed into the dock at boat show so the cockpit will look like some genius alchemey.

Re: New Gemini Legacy 35

Looks very nice,
But definately a coastal cruiser now,
That open cock pit will fill with water from a following sea,
Mine did with the higher back on the 105MC,

Who needs two heads, Is that a Sales Gimmick like Ice makers,

Re: New Gemini Legacy 35

Yaringa....

There was only 2 cats there today (at 5pm) and one looked like a Spirited and the other (in the pic), a Gemini.
