I had a similar dilemma - I know the Gemini
well , having shared one for a while...
My choice was the Dean Cat 365 - I wanted something spacious for our year long cruise. The Prouts and other designs I saw were less spacious and had dodgy sailing pedigree.
IMO the Dean 365 is the most spacious older cat there is.
I am heading back to Cyprus
where I have a berth at Latchi waiting , via Turkey
And my family
depart early November - so the "sell-by-date" has been brought forward.
There are 2 other dean 365's available - I know them both , the one is a bit scruffy with twin 9hp volvo's , the other is also twin engined and currently west of Greece
somewhere. I have the single engine
version and have found that more economical altho my skills have been honed to a new degree of accuracy.
contact me if you want more details.

PS the Dean is a bullet-proof boat
- mine is rock-solid , even has stainless steel
slippers for beaching. Designed for the Atlantic/Indian oceans and my neighbour in Cape Town
sailed his round the world
