    looking at many Duffy 35 pictures on line. None are nearly as good looking as the old tuna.com Duffy 35. Is this the same hull that Atlantic has the mold for? Maybe it’s just the positioning of Tuna.com’S cabin and the design of the cabin.

    Comments please

    I believe the old Tuna.com was a 37' Duffy. I am pretty sure the original owner is on here.

    Ah ok. That makes more sense. Does Atlantic have the 37 mold?

    Dave's old Tuna .com was a 38 Duffy. His new boat is a 44 Calvin Beal. The 37 Duffy is a completely different boat than the 38.

    There was a nice looking 35' Duffy on Wicked Tuna, Bounty Hunter. I attached a picture of the boat. Here is their website About Us

    In my opinion if you are looking for a second boat to accompany either your 46 wesmac or possibly a future 54 you should probably just buy powderpros 35 Duffy .... you'd be getting a wesmac quality finished vessel at a fraction of the cost with a guaranteed delivery from a proven no hassles guy.

    Correct, I sold it to Dave in 2009. It is a 38 Duffy, 650 Mack motor. The 38 Duffy is very large for it's class. A 35 Duffy would fit inside the 38 foot Duffy.

    I'm pretty sure I have my 35 Duffy sold, but have to agree the 35 Duffy is a great boat for many applications and has beautiful lines.

    You should really have a conversation with the guys at general marine. The NB 36 is hard to beat. They do excellent work as well. You could also get a hull layed up and have powerpro finish it.

    Yes, Atlantic has the Duffy molds. The 37' is their latest and most modern design. The beam is 13'2" and arguably one of the very best looking downeast boats built. It has a molded in hard chine, although it's not as pronounced as the Wesmac or Mussel Ridge hard chine. We all have our opinions, but I would choose the 37' Duffy over the 36' NB, and the cost to finish either boat would be virtually the same. A QSC 500 or a Deere 550 would be my engine of choice for a 37 Duffy or 36 NB. I prefer the QSB 480 for the 35 Duffy, but the 35 is plenty big to handle the QSC as well.

    Execellent information. Thanks

    Once a buyer surfaces for my Wesmax 46 I will make the move for a 54 to take south and find a used or maybe new 35 to 38 for Nova Scotia.

    Congrats! So glad to see that this boat finally sold, she fished over a lot by us and she looked to be in top notch shape. If I hadn’t got the 38 Wesmac, I would have definitely looked at her.

    That 37 Duffy has been up and down here many times. Was up as high as $269, now $199. I looked at her, really liked the layout of the boat, electronics, rear helm, etc etc, couldn’t get past the lack of solid maintenance records on the cat 3196. It would really help the sale if they could find some. Yet, the price at $199, plus some negotiation, might cover any future expenses required. The broker was really nice, cooperative etc, just still can’t understand why the engine blanks can’t be filled in.
