Made in America since 1981, the Gemini Legacy has proven to be the most family-friendly performance cruising catamaran in the world, and the reasons are obvious;
All the reasons this boat has been an American Legacy since 1981. The Gemini Legacy 35 is the most successful cruising catamaran ever built.
The master cabin of the Gemini Legacy 35 is one of the best owner's cabins in the sailing industry. A full queen-sized bed with a spectacular view through panoramic windows. Beautifully crafted cabinetry with dressing table and sitting area plus three opening hatches for ample ventilation make this cabin a home away from home.
A large forward storage cabinet with beautiful glass front doors accents unrivaled storage in this cabin.
The "owners hull" configuration with the head in the back of the same hull as the master cabin means accessibility, privacy and convenience.
The aft cabin of the Gemini Legacy 35 is roomy and spacious with beautiful cabinetry for storage and over 6 feet of headroom. A 50-inch wide double bed with lots of light and air flow from two opening hatches.
The galley of the Gemini Legacy 35 is exceptionally spacious. The storage and counter space easily rival that of a 45-foot monohull and even some 40-foot catamarans. A two-burner stove with oven and broiler, a two-sided sink with pullout spray faucet, a 3.8 cubic foot fridge with freezer, optional microwave, dedicated trash can holder and over 12 feet of stunning Corian counters make the galley of the Legacy 35 worthy of simply being called a kitchen!
Roomy with lots of storage and a well laid out electrical panel; this space is extremely functional and beautiful at the same time.
With a full standing shower and plenty of cabinet storage the standard head on the Gemini Legacy 35 is functional, easy to maintain and beautifully appointed. The space is made with a composite molded unit that keeps maintenance to a minimum. Optional Quiet Flush toilets and additional medicine cabinets add to the appeal of this private space.
The forward cabin on the Gemini Legacy 35 offers a multitude of options that allow you to configure the boat for your particular use. The cabin can be either a second head with a large storage area, a third double cabin or a 'crew cabin' configuration that combines the two.

Proudly Made in America Since 1981
In 1981 the very first Gemini Catamaran was launched and at the time no one knew it would start a legacy. With the introduction of this boat the market experienced the complete redefinition of the mid-sized performance cruising boat. There have been more than 1,100 Gemini Catamarans built since its inception.
In October, 2013 the Gemini Legacy 35 was introduced; keeping all the best qualities of a Gemini; her narrow beam, performance sailing ability, and shallow draft, but simplifying some of the systems to appeal to a cruising family.
Throughout all the years of building the Gemini Catamaran, the one constant was that they are all proudly made in America. Starting in a small town called Mayo, Maryland, then moving to the heart of Annapolis, Maryland in 1997. Then, in a mutually beneficial arrangement that helped both companies survive the great recession, Marlow-Hunter began subcontract building the Gemini for Gemini Catamarans in 2010.
The result of this arrangement has meant that the Gemini Legacy has the most advanced research and development in American boat building and the most highly skilled production team, combined with the history and catamaran design knowledge of Gemini Catamarans. All of these things have created one of the most obtainable, easy to use, fast, and fun cruising catamarans on the market today.
The fore and side decks of the new Gemini Legacy 35 are clean, safe, uncluttered and very easy to use whether you are going forward or just relaxing in the sun or on the bow seats. The profile of the Gemini deck is designed to maximize both form and function. The three levels of the deck; starting with the foredeck and moving up to the cabin top then to the pilot house, all work to create a sleek profile and keep the center of effort low. This low profile not only looks great but also contributes greatly towards the lack of heeling.
The rig of the new Gemini Legacy 35 takes advantage of the most advanced technology available in cruising catamarans today. The swept back spreaders mean strength and safety without all the clutter and additional hardware of a backstay. Eliminating the backstay also allows for a square top mainsail that puts more sail area at the top of the mast. This is where the cleanest, purest wind blows; uninhibited by objects on the water or on the boat itself, so performance is maximized in every condition. Easily getting up to 35 degrees off the wind and reaching ¾ wind speed without even trying, the Gemini Legacy makes sailing fun and easy again.
First introduced on the original Gemini 105M, the hull shape of Gemini Legacy 35 is still revolutionary in the multihull industry. The hulls are shallow and shaped much like a “teardrop” which requires little force to move them through the water yet it also provides a high load carrying capacity (450 lb per hull per 1″). The bridge deck has 39″ of clearance at the bow. This, combined with the lack of pitching and wave making, translates to a comfortable ride with no heeling. The shape has been tested and proven in a wide variety of conditions… surfing down 30′ waves in the mid-Atlantic, sailing to Hawaii, or cruising down the Intracoastal Waterway.
The Gemini hulls provide many advantages considering their weight and structural rigidity. The entire hull mold is one complete unit including the keels. This single unit eliminates any secondary bonding down the keel or at the bridge deck, making for a far stronger hull. The result is a faster, stronger, and more stable platform that provides excellent sailing performance.
The twin 15 HP Yanmar diesel engines make maneuvering the boat easy and safe in any condition and the upgrade option to twin 30 HP Yanmars means even more power and a quicker ride back to the dock.
