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.
This boat is large enough to allow for an extensive range of layouts. The main bulkhead location can range from 24′ to 33′ from the transom. This easily accommodates variations in salon and cockpit layouts. Whether your focus is on sport fishing, cruising or both this boat is large enough to incorporate a host of accommodations.
