New listing.  2002 Duffy  Electric Co. 30-foot hybrid cruiser designed by Nathaniel Herreshoff.  This hybrid electric has a large battery bank to allow her to cruise at 5 knots for as long as 15 hours.  And for extended cruising beyond on-board batteries, she has a 5.5 kw Northern Lights diesel generator to recharge the system.  You can also re-charge the 16 AGM 8-D batteries at the dock for pennies per day.   To get underway, just unplug the shorepower cord, turn on the key, and the 96-volt DC electric motor silently cruises you away with zero emissions.  You can cruise over 75 nautical miles at 5 knots on one charge!!  (And further if you start the on-board genset.)

This is the perfect launch for cocktail cruising, creek crawling, watching the Wednesday night races, or just entertaining.  She can easily seat 10 to 12 owners and guests in her two cockpits and luxury interior.   "Electric Rose" has all the comforts of a larger yacht.  She has air conditioning and heat, bow thruster, refrigerator, microwave, an enclosed head with Vacuflush head & vanity/sink, sunroof, sunblinds, stereo, radar, autopilot, and more.  The interior is done in a tasteful ultra leather, and the exterior cushions are in a regimental multi-color stripe.  Two cocktail tables with built-in cup holders can move from the salon/wheelhouse to the forward or aft cockpits.  Other touches are beveled glass windows, roll-up side windows, and lots of varnished teak inside and out.  

The Duffy Electric 30 Hybrid is for the discriminating yachtsman to complement his or her other vessels.   This is a launch you can take to the yachtclub for dinner while entertaining your family or guests.  It also a good vessel for waterfront estate owners, yacht clubs, resorts and B&B's.  You silently and efficiently cruise waterways for little or no operating cost.  She can be totally enclosed and air conditioned, or opened up for fresh air cruising.

Duffy Electric Boat Company built these custom electric hybrid launches for over $179,000..  Today, the same boat would cost $225,000 or more to build.    We have "Electric Rose" priced to sell at $99,900.   The owner is motivated to sell her,  So please bring reasonable offers.

If you own a hybrid automobile, here is a yacht to compliment your "green" lifestyle.   Call today for details.
