1986 Gemini 3000 Catamaran (30')

  • The Gemini 3000 Catamaran is a well tested design that has proven itself by it's sailing characteristics, and cruising comfort. She is a hard vessel to come by in today's pre-owned market. Make your crew content while sailing fast without the worrisome heeling. The words "don't make it tip" will no longer be heard. Accommodations are exceptionally spacious for a 31' cruising sailboat. This one is well equipped and ready to take you on sailing adventures near or far. The Gemini is a dream to sail; both easy and predictable with an impressive turn of speed. Performance comes from the power of a modern masthead rig on lightweight, unballasted and easily-driven hulls. Gemini's semi-circular hulls and full transom offer not only maximum load-caring with good performance but also a very comfortable, no-pitching level ride. The easily-adjusted centerboards go almost unnoticed in the interior of the Gemini. With boards up she draws a mere 18" for gunkholing, downwind performance or weathering a storm offshore. With boards down, they provide very close windward sailing ability and dinghy-like maneuverability. The interior is all handcrafted teak with fabrics and carpet to give her an overall feeling of warmth. Gemini is designed for luxurious living for two with the ability to sleep an extra six in privacy. The unique layout of cabins makes Gemini ideal for live-aboards or chartering. The galley is situated in the starboard hull well away from through traffic and with a panoramic view through the wide cabin windows. The galley comes complete with propane oven and broiler, a two-way fridge and pressurized hot and cold water to the sink and an on-demand instant hot water system. There is ample work surface, drawers and cupboard space. The master cabin houses a king-size berth and two additional double berths are located in each of the hulls aft. The spacious bathroom has a marine head and pressurized on-demand hot and cold shower. Headroom is 6'3" - even on the bridge deck. The dinette seats six with extra companionway seats. The four large roof hatches and removable pilothouse windows create a through-draft on even windless days because of convection currents.
