The Duffy 26 Launch from Atlantic Boat - Brooklin ME

The Duffy 26 hull is molded in solid Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic witha vinylester skin layer and full length longitudinal foam cored stringers; the hull is white gelcoat. The solid fiberglass skeg and full keel protect the propeller. PVC spray rails are through-bolted and glassed on the interior.

The interior deck and seating are a single mold in FRP with foam coring. All deck, step, and seating areas are molded; the surfaces are white gelcoat and the non-skid painted a light gray.


The Duffy 26LOA: 26' 3"  |  LWL: 24' 8"  |  Beam: 9' 6"

The Duffy 26 was designed in 1986. Since that time we have built over fifty 26's as commercial lobster boats, tow boats, charter boats and pleasure boats. The Duffy 26 is a built down, semi displacement style hull designed for excellent sea keeping. This is a true lobsterboat hull not a "stylized" V hull made to look like a lobsterboat. Maximum beam is 9'-6" and beam at the transom is 7'-3". For her size she is as stable a working platform as you could hope to find and she has the classic lines the larger Duffy's are famous for.


duffy29h-01LOA: 28' 6"  |  Beam: 9' 6"  |  Draft: 20"

The Duffy 26's waterline was extended 2'9". Outboards replace the inboard engine, eliminating the bulky engine box and expanding the sheltered cockpit space. The deep forefoot of the downeast bow offers a soft entry through the water. The modified keel and lifting rails give the DUFFY-29H (Hybrid) a planning stern. Down forward, the cabin is fully enclosed. There is a molded-in V berth area and optional head compartment.


The Duffy 31LOA:30' 10.5" | LWL:29' 2.75" | Beam:11' 0.5"

The Duffy 31 was designed by Spencer Lincoln in 1983. Her hull lines closely follow those of her larger sister the Duffy 35. The Duffy 31 is a built down, semi displacement hull with a fine forefoot and flat after section. She has the tumblehome and sweet sheer shared by all the Duffy's. Her original design as a commercial lobster boat made sea-keeping the top priority in her design. Over the years we have built over fifty Duffy 31's and they can be found lobstering all over the east coast.


The Duffy 35LOA: 35'  |  LWL: 33' 4"  |  Beam: 11' 10"

Not only is The Duffy 35 the most popular boat in our line it is one of the most popular lobster boats of all time with over 370 hulls built since 1982. The Duffy 35 is a built down hull with a fine forefoot and flat after sections producing good speed and the excellent ride that Duffy’s are famous for. Over the years the Duffy 35 has proven itself to be a safe and stable boat in all but the most severe sea conditions.


The Duffy 37LOA: 37'  |  LWL: 34' 11"  |  Beam: 13' 2"

The Duffy 37 is the newest boat in our fleet. The first hull came out in October 1999. Like all of our boats, the 37 is a built down, full keel lobster boat designed by Spencer Lincoln. The 37 is a slightly larger version of the Duffy 35 with some changes to the under body to increase speed and fuel efficiency. Because it is still a built down hull, the 37 performs much like the proven 35, but allows for faster speeds, more open layouts, greater carrying capacity and better head room.


The Duffy 38LOA: 38' 6"  |  LWL: 35' 10"  |  Beam: 14'

Please contact us for information on the Duffy 38. This webpage for The Duffy 38 boat is currently being constructed and will be available on our website soon.


The Duffy 42LOA: 42' 1"  |  LWL: 39' 8"  |  Beam: 14' 7"

The Duffy 42 was designed in 1985 and has proven to be an exceptionally able offshore lobster boat. Over 100 42's to date testify to it's continued popularity amongst commercial fishermen, sportfisherman and charter boat captains on both coasts. While the majority of Duffy 42's are finished as commercial lobster boats we have built 42's as ambulance boats, pilot boats, tow boats, clam dredge boats, commercial tuna boats, fire boats, Coast Guard Certified passenger boats and marine patrol boats.


The Duffy 48LOA: 48' 3"  |  LWL: 44' 6"  |  Beam: 17' 4"

Designed in 1990 by Spencer Lincoln, The Duffy 48 is our largest hull. To date we have built 15 boats to this design including split wheel house lobster boats, draggers, and cruisers. We have built stretched versions at 52 feet and 56 feet. With a beam of 17'- 6" this is a big 48 footer. Her hull design, as with the rest of the Duffy line, is a built down semi-displacement lobster style and as such she has the great sea keeping that the Duffy line is famous for. She can be set up with single or twin power with cruising speeds up to 25 Knots.
