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.

Seahorse will be showing a Buehler COOT 38 at the Pacific Sail and Power Boat Show, April 19th to the 22nd at Richmond CA. 

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.

Selling direct, 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.
