Northern Michigan Events: Bay Breeze Yacht Charters welcomes a new addition to their fleet in the form of the 2012 Gemini Catamaran, just in time for the Bay Harbor Boat Show this Father's Day Weekend, June 15-17!
With the 2012 Gemini Catamaran, Bay Breeze is the sole sailing operation of the Great Lakes which offers cruising catamarans both for sale and for charter. According to Dave Conrad, owner of Bay Breeze, this is a good thing due to the rising popularity of catamarans. Conrad encourages interested sailors to come check them out at the Father's Day Boat Show.
“Catamarans have increased in popularity all over the world and we are excited to introduce the Gemini catamarans to the Great Lakes sailor at the Bay Harbor Boat Show,” said Conrad. “And since admission to the show is free, this is the perfect way to check out the Gemini while spending the day with dad over Father’s Day weekend!”
Made in the USA for 30 years - The Gemini 34 is the world's best selling single-design catamaran. It boasts three private staterooms, a spacious interior, upwind performance and flat, stable sailing.
“When it comes to catamarans, most Great Lakes sailors are concerned about high purchase prices and dockage costs. The Gemini is the only fixed hull cruising cat that can fit in a standard boat slip and comes well equipped for far less than comparable cats,” adds Conrad.
