    There don't seem to be many of these on the market. I am open to any condition and configuration but looking to have a recreational family boat with some light fishing. I am in MA.

    A few years ago this forum had a member that had a 31 Duffy with a 6CTA.
    Is this the same boat ??

    "Elmar...any recollection" ??

    Thanks I looked at that boat and learned The hull size matches my needs. I have also looks at an AJ 28 which was beautiful but didn't feel that much bigger than my current boat (25ft). I also have seen a few BHM 28s which might do the trick, but I like the Duffy hull better.

    Thanks. I don't know. The boat at Shore Shore Drydock was for sale on thehullturth in about 2013. I have searched here but not seen a listing.

    I believe Hardcore1 has a 31 Duffy for sale. Send him a PM for more info.
    It looks like Chrisp did a nice job on that 29 H+H he has for sale.

    My current boat is worth about $80,000 - $90,000. I can't rationalize getting too far north of that.

    Nice boat. I am keeping an open mind as I am making the switch from planing hull to semi-displacement, but I think I want to cruise at 20 kts. She is beautiful.

    20 knots may be a hard find that will take a lot of HP good luck with your search, take your time and find the right boat

    Apparently a Duffy 31 with 400 plus hp can cruise at around 20. The AJ 28 I saw, which is not for sale, had a Yanmar 440 and could cruise at 25. However, I recognize most boats won't have that much hp. Thanks for the good advice.

    I have 370 cummins which is really only 350hp and if you want to run the boat at 2600 it's cruising 20kts. It gets about 24.5 in the corner and she is pretty rigged up. The 31 duffy will have no problem cruising over 20 with 400hp

    I liked that Duff so much I pulled off 139 a few weeks ago and looked it and sent pictures to the Commodore of my yacht club thinking he'd bite on it.
    Shows well from the outside...

    Shes a pretty boat! I looked at her twice in the last two months. My only problem was her layout. IMHO the boat was over accessorized. She has the generator aft the seat and really kills all of the cockpit room. I couldn't even think of where to put a livewell/cooler or where im gonna throw a castnet from. Hope this helps Brian at southshore is selling her. 781 820 4876
