If you were to build a 34-38ft downeast which would it be and why? Take into consideration build cost, hull economy, seaworthy, and anything else that comes to mind. This boat would be used for 6 man chartering.

What accommodations are you looking to have? Anything over-night? What will your range be as far as trips go? What type of chartering? Sight seeing, fishing, passage, etc? Fly bridge?

Look Out.. You thinking about building one.

35 Duffy or 38 Northern Bay.

35 Duffy is probably one of the nicest 35 footers and in my opinion one of the best riding. You can have a nice cruise 17-19kts without breaking the bank in fuel. Perfect for 6 man charters.

38 Northern Bay. One of my favorite boats. Really considered getting one but the H and H was too good of a deal. They also have a real nice cruise speed. Depending on engine you can cruise at 20 plus kts pretty easy. Nice size cockpit and wheelhouse.

Rich look at Chet's 35 duffy Regina E ....You will love it. Set up perfect

6 man chartering inshore . I send my offshore work to other boats because I am too slow at the moment. I am looking at a single level lobsterboat, with a finished cabin, sound down. enclosed head, bunks, hydraulic hauler for my anchor system, generator etc. Basically a finished boat

The 35 Duffy makes total sense for 6 man chartering. It is very efficient moves quick, nice ride. It is a little tight with 8 big guys though and the new build price is crazy.

The 34 Calvin, 35 Duffy, 36 Wayne, and 36/38 Northern + holland have been my considerations. In the next year I will pull the trigger on something..... probably a used boat if the price and power makes sense. Any input from the guys on this site can't hurt.

Northern Bay 38, Cummins QSM-11 670 hp, 6kw Onan generator, 30 kt+ boat.

Let me know if you're interested.
Yes I am interested but this boat new is a pipe dream for me. I know that northern for sale but I would never spend the $$$$ asking price or anywhere near it. I think he's asking $350k +. Nice boat but out of my league.
