BORN IN THE U.S.A.! Gemini Catamarans since 1981
“Bateau Soleil” is a three cabin Owner’s Version with A/C, water maker, solar and wind power (no generator). The unique configuration of the salon area with open sides allow for viewing from either hull to interact the guests at the settee area. The galley down gives privacy to the chef as well as plenty of prep space. The deep, double wide sinks have Corian covers to match the countertop. The Owner’s suite has a full-queen size bed, with tons of light & ventilation, convenient cabinets and comfortable seating space. The owner’s bathroom is a wet head with 6’3” shower space. On the guest side, the forward cabin has a twin bed with crew-style head under the seat cushion. The aft cabin twin bed and hanging locker.
The Gemini Catamarans are the most successful cruising catamaran ever built! Here’s why:
- Shallow draft allows for more anchoring & beach options (2 feet 10 inches)
- Beam fits standard size slips and standard size travel lift
- Has more interior volume compared most 40 ft. monohulls at the same price
- Fast, level sailing with virtually no heeling
- Easy maneuverability with duel 15 hp. Yanmar engines
- All lines lead to the cockpit within reach
- Curvaceous cockpit design for entertaining
- Pilot house windows for dramatic views in the salon
- Mainsheet traveler located out of the way on the hard bimini
- “Cut out” stern for accessibility while side tied
A compact coaster cruising catamaran with an excellent value and one of the lowest priced Geminis on the market today. The hard sailing is complete as she is already located in Grenada and ready to discover the Caribbean blue waters and picturesque tropical anchorages this area has to offer.
A great way to start living the dream!

There are very few Gemini’s in the Caribbean, especially down island. Good downwind boats, so great location to sail back to the USA from here and save the windward beat! Ideal Bahama shallow draft boat on the sail up! Great price on the least expensive current Gemini Legacy listing worldwide and probably the least expensive late model Catamaran for sale in the Eastern Caribbean w/ lots of brand-new cruising upgrades!
