Catalina Yachts to build Legacy 35 catamaran for Gemini

Gemini Catamarans, a division of The Catamaran Group, said it has selected Catalina Yachts to build the 2015 and 2016 models of the Gemini Legacy 35.

After three years of building the Legacy with Hunter Marine and, subsequently, Marlow Hunter, Gemini this month moved the production of its flagship Legacy 35 catamaran to Catalina Yachts, of Largo, Fla.

“The choice was easy, as Catalina’s philosophy mirrors our own,” Gemini president Laura Smith Hershfeld said in a statement. “The success of our Gemini has been the balance of tradition and innovation, coupled with actively soliciting feedback from our owners and our dealers. She was designed to be what my father called ‘every man’s’ Gemini, and we strive to keep her as fast, fun and obtainable as she has been for the last three decades.”

The partnership is expected to increase the strength of both brands, Hershfeld said.
