SEAHORSE MARINE, Zhuhai, China, is an American owned and operated yacht factory building steel yachts including Diesel Ducks designed by George Buehler

Because our yachts, including Diesel Ducks, are sold direct to end users, without advertising or promotions, our prices are about one half of similar equipped passagemakers.

Steel Diesel Ducks are built for serious ocean passagemaking and include important safety features not found on most competitor's yachts:
1) Strong steel fire proof hulls,
2) Extensive double bottoms,
3) Full recovery from capsize,
4) Many interior water tight compartments with seadoors,
4) Commercial windows, ports and hatches,
5) Easy to use sailing rigs for extended range,stabilization and "come home" capabilities,and
6) Stand up engine rooms with work benchs.

Our lines include: OCEANEER power trawlers 55 feet and up: Diesel Ducks range from 40 feet to 78 feet. Plus our popular 36 foot Coot.

Most passagemaker owners start their cruises from the factory. However, shipping and commissioning on arrival can be arranged.

ALL SEAHORSE STEEL BOATS NOW HAVE EXPANDING FOAM INSULATION, 24 VOLT DC SYSTEMS, TOROIDAL ISOLATION TRANSFORMERS.

GEORGE BUEHLER'S POPULAR DIESEL DUCK 462 (51' LOA), A SEAHORSE EXCLUSIVE.

My favorite Diesel Duck design. George has out done himself with this Duck.

No more dinette living, the Diesel Duck 462's innovative interior includes separate galley, dining and large main saloon area. Unprecedented living space in a mid-size blue water passagemaker.

The 462 has a 48' waterline for superb tracking and higher displacement speeds. LOA is 51'.

IVECO 125hp 6 cylinder marine diesel, (other engines available) George's great steadying and "come home" rig, and Seahorse Marine's exquisite teak interior. More standard gear on the Diesel Duck 462 than any other passagemaker in her size range, many costing twice as much.


If you looking for a seaworthy passagemaker with very good live aboard capabilities check out the Diesel Duck 462.
