1988 Duffy 35 Express Fisherman Fishing Boat in Narragansett, Rhode Island

Stock #202811

This is the real deal. Whether you are looking to charter, go offshore (tuna??) or just want the baddest fishing boat out there. Based on the legendary Duffy & Duffy 35 this boat is finished with everything you could possibly want to get out there ASAP.

All USCG inspections are current on this beauty and she is ready to go to work. There is also a Survitec Zodiac Solas Liferaft pack with a current safety inspection Faithful maintenance has kept all systems in top working order and functioning as designed. Modern instruments combine with proven traditional vessel design to deliver an absolute winner.

Everywhere you look is purpose-built over-engineered. High bow combines with forward flare and a huge spray guard to make for the best and driest possible ride in adverse conditions. A huge cockpit, massive underdeck livewell, loads of rod holders, perfectly positioned helm and a large tuna door guarantee the best opportunity to board the giants.

There is a large centerline console compartment housing the helm raised above the cockpit. With full controls, modern touch screen Simrad electronics and tremendous all-around visibility it is the perfect place to run her from. There is a second helm atop the full flybridge with steering and throttle controls as well. The console has a large storage area to port and a built-in tackle storage compartment to starboard.

Forward of the helm is the companionway to the cabin. Finished to be practical, the space is clean and bright. There is a forward vee with storage on either side and rod storage overhead (you remember why you're out here, right?)

Behind and to port is a small galley with storage, sink,coffee pot, and microwave. Further aft is an enclosed head with electric toilet, holding tank and overboard discharge for offshore use.

To starboard is a good size settee with additional storage underneath. An access hatch on the bulkhead give very good access to the engine room. Everything here seems very clean and dry with good access to do all regular maintenance.

A Detroit Diesel 6v92 with 450 hp uses a MG 507 2w twin disc to provide power via a 2" shaft to a 24x24 wheel. Captain reports an average of 1 mpg with this at cruise. There is also an AC/DC electrical panel on the bulkhead

I was just aboard this vessel and took all the photos seen in the listing. I welcome all calls to discuss this wonderful vessel, or to discuss a showing or offer. Call today - you will not be disappointed.
