“A life long sailor and recreational fisherman from eastern Long Island residing on the Great Peconic Bay. I have over 40years experience on both power and sail on Eastern Long Island, Rhode Island and Cape Cod. I am a member of the USPS and an active fixed wing aircraft pilot with the USCG Auxiliary. I have owned catamarans since the 1970's and currently own a Hobie 18' , a 25'SeaCat twin engine power cat center console sport fishing, and a new Gemini 105Mc. I have sailed, raced and cruised Gemini Cats since 1990 when I purchased the original "FatCat" hull 136. I raised four children sailing this boat during summer vacations. I am also the owner of FatCat Multihulls, a NYS new boat dealer specializing in Gemini Catamarans. The sailboat is great for family or friends. The shallow draft allows access to many areas that would be off limits to other boats. The design is fast, about 30 percent more than a comparable monohull. The cat sails with less than 5 degrees resulting in a very comfortable sail. The boat offers a 360 degree water view at any anchorage. The fishing boat is great for the day. Although we mainly fish, clam and ski in the bay she is designed to run offshore with outriggers, an insulated built in six ft. fish box for gamefish as well as a live bait well. We are kid and pet friendly. Actually all around friendly. We would love to check you out and get you ready to enjoy the great outdoors of eastern Long Island.”

My spouse & I needed some time away & instead of taking the sail boat we normally sail on we decided to take this route/ rent their Vessle. I do NOT have 1 bad thing to say!!!!!!

We had a great experience renting from Jerry. Jerry's terrific. Very thorough briefing on his boat before we left, and open to calls while you're on it. Keep in mind this is a no-frills fishing boat experience. No pads on the boat except for the driver and mate at the center console. He has everything you need for fishing on the boat. A cooler, plenty of storage, live bait well if you fish live bait. Hooks, nets, no poles of course. Emergency head. The boat ran perfectly. The cat experience is different than V hull. Fantastic when running. A bit rocky when drifting. So much fun.
The owners have taken meticulous care of their Gemini 34. The boat is clean and well-stocked with all the comforts of home. In fact, the delight of the catamaran is that it feels like a floating apartment, except you can dive off the back to go swimming or lower the kayak to go paddling. The hammock in the back is wonderful to enjoy a summer breeze. And if you have any questions, Jerry is an expert and very accessible. This is a wonderful boat, and anyone who is lucky enough to rent it will feel like they have found a little bit of heaven.
