S/V Gem is a Preveza, Greece based 2006 Gemini 105mc Catamaran For Sale By Owner
This catamaran owner requires financial settlement only. No trades.
This seller is open to offers via CatamaranSite escrow.

S/V Gem is a one of a kind, 2006 Gemini 105MC catamaran, for sale by owner. She includes a marina berth until July 2024.

“Over 1200 hulls sold, the Gemini 105Mc still remains one of the most proven and popular catamarans ever built. Her sailing performance is legendary yet still manages to surprise unsuspecting newcomers.”

“The accommodations are spacious, light, and airy so the term ‘down below’ just doesn’t apply. The deck layout and rig offers a stable, safe, and well-reasoned platform for whatever comes your way.” Considered a coastal cruiser or extended cruiser, with many having crossed oceans.

The ingenuity of lifting centerboards and kick-up rudders will have you moving through less than 50cm of water, great for anchoring in the crowded bays in the shallows where most others can not access. All this and more at 10.34m length and a 4.27m beam that can moor in a standard slip (very affordable compared to other catamarans), or truck across the country, or Europe! Her draft of only 0.5m with the boards and rudders up, or 1.5m with the centerboards down, when sailing.

The Gemini 105Mc is no longer being produced, and with its huge following, manages to retain high demand on the used market.

Quotes provided from: The Practical Sailor website.

This is a one of a kind Gemini 105mc, perfectly rigged for single/short hand sailing with furling screecher sail (self tacking), furling genoa, AND furling inmast mainsail! Sparcraft mast, boom and standing rigging installed in 2015, along with a new Yanmar 30hp inboard engine with low running hours (+-1400h). It is the only example of this boat with an in-mast furling system that I have come across, and makes handling extremely simple.

All systems have been maintained meticulously, and ongoing cosmetic maintenance is currently being carried out (interior teak, gelcoat polishing etc). We have not spared any expense since we’ve owned her.

* We had a survey carried out last year and no serious issues were found. Small finding have been sorted out since the survey (small sail repair, new genoa line, service of life raft and fire fighting equipment). All up to date!

* Included in the sale is a berth at the beautiful Preveza Marina, Greece. It is valid from date of listing until July 2025! Preveza is a wonderful town at the door of the Ionian Islands. Great staff and amazing facilities. A huge benefit to any prospective buyer who wishes to sail Western Greece and further into the Med! This is providing the marina is in agreement at the time of sale, but there should be no issue.

Work needed to be completed: Very little.

  • Currently only one burner of the stove is working. The second burner will need servicing. Otherwise the cooker works well.
  • There are some spider cracks in the gel coat. They are purely cosmetic, as reported by the surveyor recently (2022). It is a time consuming job, but also a fairly easy DIY job to enjoy over the season while catching some sun on anchor. Spider cracks are common for these cats, and compared to others Gem’s gelcoat is in a good condition. I am currently working on this job.
  • The main entrance door seal will need replacing, although it still closes and seals well for now.
  • The steering cables need a clean during the next annual engine servicing.

Our thoughts:

Gem has been a great first boat for us, and we´ve enjoyed every moment with her. We will surely miss the comfort and stable platform for living aboard that this amazing catamaran offers, not to mention the space. Fun and forgiving sailing for the newbies looking for their first boat, buyers looking to test the catamaran world, or the older couple, wanting no fuss sailing and comfort at anchorages!

If you are genuinely interested, I will have Gem for sale without a broker initially to avoid fees for the buyer (a considerable amount in savings!). I can arrange sales contracts at the expense of the purchaser. I will pay deregistration of current flag, buyer pays for the new registration, under their name

Thank you for your time and interest!
