Default 35-37 Duffy

My 27 Onslow Bay just sold. So I am on the hunt for the next sled and going the Downeast route.

so Iím looking for a 35-38 DE. Kind of narrowed it down to a few. But a 35-37 Duffy is on top of my list. Any input on hull w ride and seaworthiness in different conditions, speed and cruise, I am all ears.
Not to easy to locate, but if anyone knows of one early 2000ís on up, Please let me know
180k ish +/-
Once Iím set on an exact hull I will throw up a WTB ad in the F/S section.
Right now Iím just looking for a little feedback on the possible availability on a 35-37 High Shear Duffy
if somebody knows

Yes, spoke to a few guys on there already. Just poking around on THT to see if anyone else on here has bit of other info, or eyes on one.

This guy Outisland on here has been looking pretty steadily (it seems) for the past couple of years in that size range. His budget has been a notch lower than yours (~$150K I believe) but it seems like he's looked at everything. You might send him a PM and see if he's come across anything that would work for you. Here's a thread he started about his search: Looking for 35 to 38 Downeast

No doubt Duffy's are nice boats but there's quite a few others in that size range that are great too, I wouldn't limit myself to Duffy's in that size range personally.

couple other of my buddies said to look at 38 NB
since im looking for a solid 20 kt cruise
To do that a 35 Duffys going to need a 480 Cummings, A 37 would need like a cat12

ill find something that fits the bill or a good platform to work with whether its a 35-37 duffy.
my budget is right where boats 15-20yrs old have been floating when sold after contacting owners post sale. Some that are basically all redone and others for less money than may need work. There is a 37 w a cat12 slightly over budget and set up more for cruising.
Iíve been watching the sales of the 3-4 main players on my list. Now w cash in hand it makes it easy.
since u have to be ready when a deal comes along.
im not in a rush which is a good thing.
Problem is making a compromise since my exact boat Id like now, probably doesn't exist used.
It was so great building my last boat for sure.

This 36 NB on DEBF looks pretty sweet and you'd have some money to get thngs how you want them: https://www.downeastboatforum.com/th...or-sale.28055/

Probably the dream deal is the 38 Wesmac hull Powderpro (Brian is his real name) has for sale on there: https://www.downeastboatforum.com/th...-46-400.27628/ The guy has finished several of them himself (wesmacs and Lowells) and will have a good handle on costs to finish. He's got a contract to finish a bunch of boats so he can't do this one himself. You'd end up over your budget but maybe not by that much if you're smart and careful, and it's a dream hull for sure. I'm probably dreaming on the finishing costs though.

The 36 BHM on there is a super nice rig but only cruises @ 16.5 https://www.downeastboatforum.com/th...17;-bhm.27815/

Ice,
Thanks.
the owner of the 36 NB contacted me a couple times
although for right price there is money to do things to the boat. I think a 38 is the ticket w the NB
they push easier.
a buddy of mine has a 36BHM. Thing is a huge tank.
tx for looking out.

The 36 pushes very easy too. The 38 is faster because its a bit wider. Not sold on the duffy 37 hull.

If you can find yourself a Cape & Island finished Duffy, buy it and never look back. Andy knows those hulls like nobody’s business....all the little tricks that makes his finishing worthy of a trademark!

I agree and a bit hesitant since no too much info in them and they didnt take off like the 35.
but lille bigger and push water better,
plus hard chine which will make the drift a bit better is something Id be interested to look at.

You got some bad information there buddy. Plenty of info on NB hulls. The duffy 35 is a great hull but no match for the NB 36 in a lot of ways and the guy who designed both of them will tell you that. The Nb 36 was conceived out of his desire to correct a few things from his duffy design. If you think a duffy is a good head sea boat you should go for a ride on a NB. Then tell me which one rides better. You also need to do some more homework on that 37. Go over to the other site and ask about it. You also cant compair getting out of the hole by stepping on one boat. Go for a ride on mine and you will see what its like to get out of the hole.

Curious to see thoughts on the Young Brothers 35 or 38 . A friend has a 35 , never been on it , it's set up as a dragger and I'm not really interested 'cause it kinda stinks . He loves it though . Guy I fish with all the time runs an Osmond 29 and always says if he upgrades it will probably be a Northern Bay or a Young Brothers . Are they comparable ?

How about a 40 foot Dorado Pilot house? Looks like a nice boat.

My advice is to spend as much as possible for the very best boat you can afford. Most of the boats on the lower end of used market are hammered. Decks, hydraulics , water leaks, rusted Gen, high engine hours will all add up quickly. I searched long and hard for my Eastern 31’ and paid high retail. It was worth it. 3 years later and 400 hours, not 1 problem.

12 foot beam on a 40?? Kinda small IMO. Cool boat though.
