Back in the 1960s, Marshall “Duffy” Duffield of Newport Beach was a teenager working with friends to create his first electric boat. By 1970, he had improved upon the original idea and opened Duffy Electric Boats to sell his creations to the public. This year, Duffy celebrates its 40th anniversary as the world’s “first and finest” electric boat manufacturer. Duffy boats are sold by more than 40 dealers throughout the U.S. and internationally.
What makes Duffy boats so special? They are quiet, low-maintenance, easy to operate works of art crafted in fiberglass, metal, and canvas. Because customers specify the colors, interior fabrics, and features they want, no two boats are alike. Options include a refrigerator, running water, stereo system, bunks, a galley, dining tables, heater, and many other custom choices.
Every boat comes equipped with a quiet, high-power electric motor, maintenance-free battery system, and a patented, easy to use PowerRudder steering system. With a top speed of 5.5 to 7.5 miles per hour, Duffy boats are ideal for beginning boaters. Rent one by the hour, seven days a week, from the Newport Beach sales and rental office. Experience the beauty of an environmentally-friendly Duffy boat for yourself, and discover a lifestyle that’s been enjoyed for 40 years.
