SEAHORSE will be showing a 36' COOT in the Strictly Sail Pacific show, Richmond CA, April 7th to 10th. Stop by and visit.

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, we could paint your new Duck green.

1) Strong steel fire proof hulls;
2) Extensive double bottoms;

14) Steps, not a ladder, to the swim/dive/boarding platform which has safety rails and a swim boarding ladder;
