The Duffield Story
Duffield Yacht’s skipper is Marshall “Duffy” Duffield. Duffy has spent his entire life on the water.
Over the span of three decades he evolved into an award-winning offshore racer, boast designer and builder. He’s won the Transpac, several Congressional Cups, S.O.R.C., St. Francis Big Boat Series and numerous other big-name races along the west coast and Mexico.
If You Build It, They Will Come
Since 1970, Duffy has been mass-manufacturing the famous Duffy Electric Boats, which revolutionized the way people boated in harbors and lakes. The experts warned that electricity powered boats would never catch-on. They thought battery power was just too weak to push a twenty-foot displacement boat through the water.
Forty eight years and many thousands of electric boats later, the Duffy® line is more successful than ever, producing 11 different models from 14-30 feet and selling worldwide.
Next Up… a 58 Foot Beauty
Duffy’s like to dream big and the Duffield 58 is just that and combines the best of contemporary boat building with the elegance of tradition.
Lets read what Duffy has to say:
“I wanted a traditional-looking boat that was proportionally correct and would still perform well while using much less fuel. My eye caught the name of an east coast designer named Doug Zurn. His boats ‘looked right’ to me and he emphasized using modern, advanced composite materials for fast cruising and fuel savings.”
The Duffield 58′
Designed for efficiency, comfort and quiet running, the Duffield 58 takes power cruising to a new level of excellence.
Built in California by Duffield Yachts she is the culmination of two brilliant minds, “Duffy” Dufflield and Massachusetts designer Doug Zurn Yacht Design. When West meets East, magic can happen
The goal for silent running and best fuel efficiency brought primary electric propulsion to the fore, but given the current options, the design moved toward using a single diesel with the Seatorque Control Boss Enclosed Shaft System. With the soft-mounted engine located aft of the main sitting and sleeping accommodations sound and vibration in the main saloon is at luxury car levels. Efficiency comes from light weight, a narrow long hull form, and superior hull geometry.
Another design element for the Zurn team to consider was simplicity. With the single engine you halve the maintenance time and spare parts issues and are more likely to keep both elements at top level, translating to excellent reliability.
Stability in motion and at rest were other key functional design elements the Zurn team addressed to high satisfaction.
Each Duffield 58 is equipped with a SeaKeeper stability system to keep rolling to a minimum at slow speeds and rest. Whether running through a nasty cross chop or moored in a rolly anchorage, the Duffield 58 provides the ultimate in motion comfort.
The interior centers around the open-plan galley and sitting area in the main saloon with 360-degree views. The centerline helm with more than enough room for instrumentation is incorporated into the forward portion of this space giving the helmsperson unsurpassed site lines.
Moving aft leads to a comfortable and sorted aft cockpit while the sleeping accommodations are forward.
In the bow, the master stateroom’s island queen berth has easy access from both sides while the roomy en-suite head incorporates a separate shower.
To port is a second cabin with queen-sized berth and en-suite head while to starboard is a flexible space that could be used for storage, a crew cabin, or a wonderful kids’ cabin.
The Duffield 58 is simplicity at its best while creating an exceptional environment for those on passage. With easy access for maintaining systems, high-end construction quality throughout, and efficiency born of lightweight, creative design and careful planning, the passages will be long and comfortable.
