LAYOUT & ACCOMMODATIONS:
Standing in the cockpit looking forward in the companionway door you see the large, open, SALON area which can seat 6-8 persons comfortably with storage underneath the seats. Just inside the door toward the galley area is the refrigerator/freezer and on the left is a built-up seat with footrest for driving the boat from inside the cabin in inclement weather. Turning to starboard and three steps down is the GALLEY with one of the GUEST CABINS aft and the spacious MASTER STATEROOM forward with a centerline queen bed. Crossing over to the port hull, the 2nd GUEST CABIN is aft, with the HEAD forward, and the middle section of the port hull contains a large variety of built in storage areas housing: batteries, inverter, dropdown computer desk/Ham/SSB center, platform for stereo unit, hand & power tools, teak winch handle and wrench box for Drop Boards, with overhead fish rod storage on the left of the walkway. All windows have blinds, the opening windows & hatches have removable screens, and the large hatches in the salon(2), head, and master cabin each have solar Nicro vents which allow for complete air exchange in the boat. Other additions to the comfort of the boat include 5 Hella fans and 4 Halogen reading lights each with dimmers and adjustable controls.

The toilet has an oversize bowl, seat, and Earthsafe unit to deodorize and lubricate the lines with each flush. The discharge system has Odorsafe hose and a Marelon vented loop to prevent siphoning back into the head. A panel drops down to view the holding tank. A towel rack is mounted over the toilet with storage behind the sink, a mirror over the sink, storage behind sliders on the port side and along with papertowel dispenser and recessed, watertight, toilet paper holder.

After having owned three sailboats and lived aboard and cruised a Pacific Seacraft 34' for three years, "Simple Pleasures" was the fulfillment of our cruising dreams. We have lived aboard her for five years, cruised the Chesapeake, East coast of US, Gulf coast and the Everglades. We have always felt safe, comfortable, and able to take the rough weather with confidence in our Gemini. The sailing has been fast, smooth, and great fun. I can think of no better boat on which to liveaboard or experience cruising.
Now it is your turn. The best advice I can give you is "Don't wait"!Recent Updates: we have rebuilt the Sonic Leg outdrive with new bearings, etc. as well as replaced the hydraulic pump line for the leg with a stainless steel hose and new fittings. We also sanded the bottom, filled in voids and painted with 2 coats of ACP 50 paint. This was just completed the middle of May 2002.
