Default 26/31 Duffy

kicking around the idea of having a custom downeast built...does anybody have a rough idea of what these boats go for....obviously power and finish has a lot to do with pricing....looking to have something built for sportfishing, not yacht quality but nice...well powered....thx Matt.

Back in '05 the basic Duffy 26' was $108K with a 260hp Yanmar. The 31' is much more boat, not sure what it was at that time, but correspondingly more expensive.

I had a 31' priced out from Atlantic ready to fish for around $218000 last year similar to the pics below. The boat came with a Yanmar 370. Drop them a line at the address below.

Atlantic boat gets top dollar for finishing there hulls.If you look around at some of the smaller yards/builders you can get it done for alot less.Also if you have the time and ambition much of the work can be done yourself saveing thousands.

I agree. The same boat built by Cape Island boats here on Cape cod would have been around $190K also it would have been more to my specs. If you are looking for a nice 31 decked out for fishing check out this boat finished by Cape Island boats here on the Cape. She is priced out a lot less then a band new one with all the right fishing features. The only draw back I see is the house may be big for some.

Default 1986 JC31 Downeast with cat diesel

I've got my dads 1986 JC 31 with a 375 hp CAT. Just like a duffy. Boat was completely redone by my dad in 2006-2008. Beautiful boat and we have been off shore multiple times. The JC31's are very hard to find w/o a trunk cabin. This boat is kind of rare and a true gem. Here are some poictures. It might actually be fore sale soon, we are looking into a Carolina Custom Built boat, might sell my boat and my dads to get a custom. I don't even know how much this down east would go for in this market, I saw them going for 65-80 thousand before the economy went bad.

1986 JC 31, 375 hp Cat Diesel, new hardtop (custom built), windless, hull redone, new fuel tanks, canvas and more. This boat was done from top to bottom!

That JC looks good. Do you know what you will be looking for in a Custom Carolina design?

No offense but the lowell designed 31 JC is a completley different boat than a Spencer lincoln designed duffy, the duffy is a round chine built down hull, the JC is a hard chine skeg boat, and tends to pound alot more in a head sea.

That question is kind of vague. It's like asking how much does it cost ot build a house.

For a finished turn-key boat (yacht finish), it can range from $7k-$15k per foot in that size range.

If you just want a kit boat, meaning the hull, cabin, motor and tranny installed, it can run you about $2k-$4k/foot, and maybe less. You won't even have cutouts for the windows at that pricing though.

Look on yachtworld. The asking prices for what late model boats is going for is more or less peoples current investment in the boat. That's what it will have cost you for a similar boat once you add electronics and bedding and the galley, etc.

They aren't cheap to build, but are very economical to run and a joy to own.

The JC is a hard chine boat, but is not skeg built. And head sea performance is not bad. JC's get a bad rap mostly I think because of their squirrely performance in a following sea, which can be managed with a seasoned hand at the helm. Some of the older ones have some water intrusion issues as well. There were many, many of these hulls constructed, almost as many as the 35' Duffy which I am also a fan of. Lots of old salts still love their JC 31's, they are tough little boats that serve their owners well.

No trying to down play the JC, just not the same boat. I would say is more of a skeg boat than a built down, there is not that much transition to the keel as compared to a duffy. it does depend on layout, power and throttle handle placement but compared to the Duffy, it pounds. the JC is a great workhorse no doubt, and has its uses.

I agree!! That is a REALLY nice Duffy 35 at a great price!!

Probably the best designed boat for the serious boater/angler as well as commercial use. Great all around boat. Easy on fuel too.
