Point 65 Gemini GT Solo Modular Kayak
The Point 65 Gemini GT is a fun, versatile, high-performance, modular recreational kayak. Its roomy and comfortable cockpit makes it easy to handle in and out of the water. The solo version comes in 2 pieces and the tandem comes in 3, and these pieces snap together and apart in seconds. The Gemini has also been called the 9’/14’ solo-tandem hybrid because of its ability to “transform” into these. This “snap-ability” makes a solid, stable, and strong kayak which breaks down to fit in the back of most cars.
The “snap-ability” mentioned above is Point 65’s revolutionary Snap-Tap technology – meaning the Gemini snaps apart into back and front sections (the tandem version has a back, front, and middle section) and re-assembles in seconds. The coolest part about this is that you can have a solo and a tandem kayak in one! For those days you go out by yourself, leave out the mid section and you have a solo kayak. Bring someone along and snap in a mid section for a tandem kayak! Or bring the whole party and snap in several mid sections! The record so far is a 100-man kayak built by adding middle sections to Point 65’s Tequila! sit on top recreational kayak! The solo version of the Gemini does not come with a mid section, but we have them available for purchase!
The Gemini is blow-molded in HTP (High Performance Thermoplastic) in Syracuse, NY USA. It features a comfy seat with a foldable, padded backrest, a bottle holder on the front deck, and a tankwell covered by a mesh net for bone dry storage of your belongings. Add an optional fitted spray cover to stay dry while paddling in any and all conditions!

About Point 65
Point 65 Beginnings
The idea behind Point 65 came from the magical place of Point 65° North. It is the island, Rönnskär, near the Northern City of Skellefteå, Sweden and the home of the Pite-Rönnskär lighthouse. It was built in 1905, and is surrounded by hundreds of islands – ideal for exploring the outdoors. The islands’ beauty combined with the engineering and ingenuity of the lighthouse were the essence of what the Point 65 brand wanted to achieve.
Founded in 1996, Point 65 is now the leading outdoor brand in Europe, and one of the fastest growing outdoor brands in the world. Point 65’s products are sold all over the world, with innovation as their hallmark.
Point 65 has been the recipient of numerous awards and recognition from multiple renowned kayaking magazines and authorities.
Dedicated to quality, form, and function, Point 65 is innovative, their products are functional, and their design is Scandinavian. Their mission is to inspire people to use the outdoors, through innovative, unique, and outstanding products.
Point 65 is the company behind the ingenious, practical, modular take-apart kayaks, and the Rum Runner modular stand up paddleboard (SUP). These modular water crafts easily snap together to form one solid boat, and snap apart for easy transportation and storage.
On top of their modular kayaks and the Rum Runner modular standup paddleboard, Point 65 also offers a wide range of state-of-the-art bags and hard shell backpacks - which double as the highest rated spine protectors in the world while protecting and keeping your gear dry. These packs were previously known as “Boblbee”.
The Point 65 Team
Point 65 has some amazing members on their team. These members include the ultimate test paddler, Freya Hoffmeister, one of the leading designers in Scandinavia, Magnus De Brito, and the living paddling legend, Nigel Foster.
Magnus De Brito brought advanced marine technology with him to Point 65. He designed the award-winning modular kayaks Apollo, Tequila!, Martini, and Mercury, and also the Rum Runner modular standup paddleboard. He also designs state-of-the-art touring kayaks, such as the XP18, XP18 Spyder, and the Freya Expedition. The Freya Expedition was named after Freya Hoffmeister, and she also helped Magnus design it.
Nigel Foster – referred to by many as a living paddling legend – strengthened the Point 65 team in 2004, by bringing his legacy and the history of modern paddling with him. Not only is Nigel Foster an international kayak teacher and icon of modern sea kayaking, he has also designed 6 sea kayaks, and his international reputation is built on his designs. Nigel is the designer behind Point 65’s Whisky 16, Double Shot, and Nigel Foster Paddles.
