Driving a diesel powered yacht around the world can not be considered "going green". However, George Buehler's sail assisted Diesel Ducks not only leave a small footprint on our planet, they leave a lot more "green" in your bank account. If you want, we could paint your new Duck green.
Preliminary plans added to the picture section of our new Diesel Duck 492. A queen size luxury stateroom forward replaces the double bunk cabin. Pamper your guests!
Construction starting soon. Contact us for details.
Sellng direct without advertising or promotions means our prices are about one half those of similar passagemakers.
GEORGE BUEHLER'S POPULAR DIESEL DUCK 462 (51' LOA), A SEAHORSE EXCLUSIVE.
My favorite Diesel Duck design. George has out done himself with this Duck.
No more dinette living, the Diesel Duck 462's innovative interior includes separate galley, dining and large main saloon area. Unprecedented living space in a mid-size blue water passagemaker.
The 462 has a 48' waterline for superb tracking and higher displacement speeds. LOA is 51'.
John Deere Tier III 4045 125HP marine diesel, (other engines available) George's great steadying and "come home" rig, and Seahorse Marine's exquisite teak interior. More standard gear on the Diesel Duck 462 than any other passagemaker in her size range, many costing twice as much.
If you looking for a seaworthy passagemaker with very good live aboard capabilities check out the Diesel Duck 462.
