Default What kinda boat - Tuna.com?

I like the lines on the Tuna.com rig ( Wicked tuna series ). What kind of economy/speeds would a boat like that achieve.. thinking about my elderly years lol..

Funny, I was thinking last night while watching the series what great boats these are. Is Duffy the only manufacturer? Who else makes this style of boat?

Duffy is probably the most well known, but there are a bunch of builders up in ME building that style hull. Check out downeastboatforum.com there is a ton of info on these boats.

That .com boat is really fast for a downeast. See him buzzing around a lot. I keep my boat in the same harbor.

Pin Wheel is a Donelle 35. Little different, not considered a down east like duffy, beals, etc. I think they are still pretty cool and the 43s are monster work horses but downeasts beat them in the looks category.

Pinwheel looks similar to a Provincial, but I'm not sure.

The downeast style boats are a staple here in New England, and part of the reason I love it here and endure the horrid winters.

Some will go as far as saying they actually attract fish, specifically Tuna Fish :-)

I am lucky enough to spend many hours on a Sabre 34' downeaster each summer. Really nice boat.

Tuna.com was sold to Dave by me. I owned it from 2000 thru 2009. It's a 38 Duffy high sheer with 1997 650 HP Mack E7 inline 6 cal. It cruises 19-20knots at 1950 RPM burning 20-21 gals per hour but Dave rarely runs it that hard. I bought it as a bare hull, finished and splashed it in 2002. 26 knots WOT at 2350 RPM.

It's really an impressive boat...can put most 35 footers inside the 38 Duffy footprint. I fished it mostly south shore Long Island for tuna & charter, some Carolina & New England but Dave really put the boat to use as it was intended.

Not sure how a boat that costs upwards of a quarter of a million dollars and burns 20 gph equates to economy for the golden years. Someones golden years are looking pretty darn golden. :-)

F that. If I'm getting 1mpg I may as well be going 70 mph...

I believe the forward swept windows are known for shedding water better(rain or the green variety) and also creating some more room around the helm. Pretty much the norm on Novi boats and a lot of work boats.

The Run-Off that fishes out of Morehead City is a 42' WesMac. I looked up those boats awhile back, the builder and owners of used ones are very proud of them.

The mate, Wahoonbox, has several videos on you tube showing the boat in action, pretty cool.
