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 ocean passagemaker. 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
