    6k. But don’t hold me to it. They are working up a number for boat motor and trailer. 15 hp Yamaha.

    I think they should call it a Duffy 16

    Any idea when they first started making this skiff? I just bought a 16’ un-branded “Skiff” that looks an awful lot like this does.

    I bought mine used this summer, 30yrs old. Trying to find out what it is. I got excited thinking it might be one of these, but since they’re new it definitely can’t be.
    Sorry for derail.
    This one really is a nice looking skiff! Duffy 16 has a nice ring to it. How does it run with the 15?

    Sometimes I dream about a little boat like this to just explore the back bays and harbors I never got to experience as a kid, but bring my daughter to do it... Granted you dont need a Duffy 18' Kit with boat motor and trailer to do it, it's just nicer, however self bailing cockpit is the priceless...

    Any thoughts on the "Duffy 16" vs a Holland 14? the ABC hull is narrower even at 16 ft. Would the 18fter get wider or are they just tacking on two more feet? Seems like they cost about the same new.
