catamaran deck
The Grouchy Turtle is a 33.5’ Gemini 105M cruising catamaran, built by Performance Cruising in Annapolis, MD. With a 14’ beam, she is just narrow enough to fit in a standard slip, unlike larger cats, although we like spending most of our time on the hook anyway. The Turtle has a mast height of 45’ and draws 5’ with the centerboards down. With the boards and rudders up the draft is only 18”, allowing the Turtle to explore places that can’t be reached by many other boats. She can even be beached…just not stern up. Trust me on this one!
