Renown Naval Architect, George Bueller understood what the professional cruiser sought, safety foremost, coupled with reliability and unassuming luxury for extended cruising.
Born from the concept of the West Coast fishing trawler, he combined sea-keeping reliability with an elegant interior rivaling far more expensive yachts. Many cruisers agree that the Diesel Duck has the most attractive lines in the crowded trawler market. A “ship” you’ll be proud to own.
Fuel capacity combined with fuel economy, makes the 462 world capable. With a reserve of over 2000 gallons the Diesel Duck 462 can (and has many times) crossed the Pacific Ocean without supplemental fuel. Powered by a small diesel engine, this full-displacement Duck sips fuel, and is equipped with a supplemental get home sail system you will give you an amplified level of security in the most demanding environments!
Unlike most other designs the Diesel Duck is constructed from steel. The carefully faired hull has all the aesthetic attributes of the fiberglass hull without the seagoing vulnerability. The faired hull coupled with heavy duty stainless steel railings and an exterior teak deck makes the 462 a truly remarkable vessel. No more worrying about rogue logs or minor groundings.
Redundancy is often undervalued. The serious mariner needs a backup plan in the event of a mishap. Not only does the Diesel duck have redundancy on major systems such as electrical and steering, its systems are designed to be repaired by ordinary people in remote places – simplicity and luxury are carefully crafted in unison.
If you’re a serious cruiser, you’re going to want a boat that can really take you places, and the Diesel Duck 462 announces its serious voyaging potential with a high bow, a pilothouse with forward raked windows and a Portuguese bridge, — this vessel lets you know it’s not messing around.
