1997 Gemini 105M Catamaran Sailboat in Saint Petersburg, Florida

Stock #145557

I personally took all the photos and video of the boat, please contact me if you have any questions. All photos were taken 03/2018.

The current owner has had it since 04/2017, he has a 105MC so he is a very experienced Gemini owner. The previous owners kept the boat on a lift out of the water for 6 years.

Below is an excerpt I found online and a great depiction of the model:

After a 2008 Pacific crossing, the owner of a Gemini exclaimed, "the catamaran hull performs flawlessly in open blue water as well as the light winds of the Kona coast ... the forward stateroom is queen sized .. the main cabin seats six ... plenty of height in the full head with shower." Great sailing and lots of living space - what's not to like?

The Gemini is the most popular cruising catamaran in the world with more than 1000 hulls manufactured over nearly 30 years. While most of those hulls are in service as coastal cruisers, many have crossed the oceans. In 2001 the owner, designer, and builder of the Gemini catamaran series, Tony Smith, sailed a new Gemini 105Mc across the Atlantic Ocean for a delivery to Southampton, England topping out at 18 knots of speed (surfing down the face of heavy seas). Many more of these adventures are chronicled in the Gemini Gems magazine (print and electronic versions) or the very active Gemini Yahoo forum.

A large cockpit with wheel steering and plenty of room for an afternoon picnic greats the sailor ascending the aft stairs. A generous, hard foredeck is surrounded by a stainless pulpit for the entire bow and lifelines running along the somewhat narrow side decks. With only about 8000 pounds of displacement, anchor chain and rode need not be overly heavy. Sailing a boat with such light displacement across the ocean requires careful consideration of heeling angles and reefing. Anything above seven degrees of heel means it's time to reduce sail.

Returning to the cockpit allows the sailor access to the interior. Starting at the same level as the cockpit sole, immediately one is greeted by a salon table that comfortably seats four and even eight in a squeeze. Descending a few steps to the left and moving forward is found the head and shower. Hot water is provided by a propane driven instant heater, like an RV or many European homes. The big advantage is that if you have water in the two 35 gallon freshwater tanks, then you can have hot water.

Gemini 105M Layout In the aft part of both hulls are two births. The master cabin is in the starboard hull forward, featuring a queen-sized bed. There is a tremendous amount of storage for dry goods in the galley and a propane driven refrigerator.

The Gemini is mainly driven by the roller furled genoa and small main, though many sailors add screechers, asymmetrical spinnakers and jibs to their sail lockers. Each hull has a cable driven, hand-cranked centerboard that can be completely tucked into a trunk in the hull, reducing the draft (assuming the rudders are likewise raised), or dropped three feet into the water, dramatically improving upwind performance. While most sailing and motoring can be accomplished with both boards let half-way down, the ability to adjust the boards to wind, current, sailing or anchoring conditions is one of the Gem's great strengths.

The 105m is driven by a 27 HP Westerbeke diesel engine driving a Sillette tilting saildrive. The saildrive is powered hydraulically to raise and lower.

The hull is solid GRP, laminated from woven roving and mat with isophthalic polyester resin. An outer layer of polyester resin and gel coat protects against osmosis. The decks and cockpit sole are GRP sandwich with balsa wood core.
