Driving a diesel powered yacht
around the world can not be considered "going green".
However, George Buehler's sail assisted Diesel Ducks not only leave
a small footprint on our planet, they leave a lot more
"green" in your bank account. If you want, at no
additional cost, we could paint your new Duck green.
without advertising or promotions, means our prices are about one
half those of similar passagemakers.
GEORGE BUEHLER'S DIESEL DUCK 382 (41' LOA)
A slightly smaller version of George's popular Diesel Duck 462.
Seaworthy, livable and AFFORDABLE.
Thank you for your interest in George's new Diesel Duck 382
(41'LOA). This design is a cooperative effort between George and
Seahorse Marine to create a lower cost yet very seaworthy and livable
Attached are the plans and profiles for the Diesel Duck 382. The aft
cabin can have a centered walk-around bed or a side bed with a nice
desk/office/den arrangement. The pilothouse has a settee with table to
port and a helm bench and large chart table to stbd. While there is no
stbd side door we can install a large safety hatch next to the helm.
The forward stateroom has double bunks with storage ("V"
berth option available).
The sailing rig is balanced for better sailing and to provide better
long range economy and stabilization. All sails are easily furled.
All Seahorse yachts can be purchased directly from the factory at
wholesale prices. Start your cruise from here and apply the shipping,
custom's and sales tax to your cruising kitty. There is absolutely no
tax here on these boats. When, perhaps at the end of your cruise, you
permanently import a vessel into a country than there may be reduced
custom's duties and possibly sales tax or VAT due.
The 382 includes a lot of standard features that are optional on
other yachts, see below. The DD-382 is available as a fully rigged
motorsailer if desired. Attached is a list of standard No Cost equipment.
