The Gemini 105 MC is a highly regarded, no nonsense, go anywhere with minimal fuss Catamaran enjoying a huge 'fan base'. One owner from new and travelled far and wide. It is very clearly a boat aimed at the owner, one who may want a boat for weekend and vacation cruising, or for a sailing couple on that extended cruise, the dream of a life time. For either, the Gemini is a successful design.
The Gemini 105 MC is a true cruising Catamaran giving far more accommodation than one would find on an equivalent cruising mono-hull.
Hull, Deck & Keel
The hulls, decks, and interior liners provide reinforcement of the structure and a base for furniture in solid fibreglass. The Liners are glassed and tabbed into the hull prior to installation of the deck.
The laminate schedule uses vinylester resins bonding a barrier coat of 1.5-oz mat followed by two layers of 18 x 15 Cofab mat.
The only coring is 1/2â€³ end-grain balsa across the fore deck and cabin top, and in cockpit areas there are no deck fittings.
The hull-deck joint is the tried and tested shoe box design bonded together creating a phenomenal bond.
Once installed, the deck is secured with stainless steel fasteners on 5â€³ centres and the joint is covered by a gunwale guard.
HULL FORM and CENTRE BOARDS
The designer Tony Smith describes the hull shapes, as â€œrevolutionary in the multihull industry.â€ They have a 9:1 length to width ratio.
â€œThey closely resemble a racing monohullâ€, Smith says. â€œThey are shallow and fat, with a teardrop shape to produce more speed and increase load-carrying capacity, narrower shapes allow hulls to be moved outward to produce stability without increasing beam.â€
The foredeck has 39â€³ of clearance at the bow.
Asymmetric centreboards are used and were designed to reduce turbulence and drag and increase lift.
Constructed of a combination of fibreglass mat and Kevlar surrounding closed cell foam, they pivot upward to allow shallow-water anchoring.
Located in cavities on the hulls, they are raised from inside the main saloon, a convenient arrangement that does not interfere with galley or navigational chores.

Interior & Accommodation
With an easy step over an 11â€³ door frame from the cockpit into the saloon thereâ€™s no comparing the open spaces of the MCâ€™s 14-foot beam to the view along the saloon of a typical 34-foot monohull.
The saloon is light and airy with numerous windows and hatches.
Fibreglass surfaces are light and shiny, and veneers nicely finished.
Thereâ€™s an elongated galley on the starboard side, matched by a navigatorâ€™s station along the port side, and twin staterooms aft.
The boat has enough bunks for 6-8 adults.
In addition to its spaciousness, the minimum headroom, even in the head, is more than 6â€², so most passengers will be able to stand upright.
The centrepiece of the saloon is a C -shaped dining area surrounded by cushions that, with the table removed, provides ample apres sailing lounging.
When lowered, the table converts to a double berth.
The dining table is solid teak. Leaves increase the surface of the table to feed 6-8 adults, and it rotates 90 degrees to fit the crowd.
The space to port, amidships along the hull, is dedicated to the navigator. Part of the navigatorâ€™s 89â€³ long work surface is elevated.
The master stateroom is forward amidships and to starboard, with the bunk set at a slight angle.
These quarters are filled with light by a port spanning the hulls that presents views through the forward window.
The queen-sized berth sits on an island with nothing below it but the hull. Storage is forward in the hull, and in bins to starboard.
The aft bulkhead of the compartment is enclosed by smoked glass that slides out of the way to provide a view for the helmsman.
The head with WC, Wash basin and shower is forward in the port hull. The head compartment is big, bright, and well-ventilated.
The Aft cabins have a 28â€³ x 28â€³ area in which to change clothes without banging the hull.
The galley located in the starboard hull on the MC 105 is increased by locating counter tops on the inboard and outboard sides of the passage, and with the addition+ of drawers and cabinets.
The space is filled with a two-burner stove with oven, and two-section stainless steel sink with hot and cold water.
A solar vent is located overhead.
The four-cubic-foot refrigerator is a Dometic American (converted 201).
