Read what they have to say about Duckworth Boats
There is no way that we can say just one thing that we enjoy most. We love everything about our Duckworth. The power, the control, the finish, the functionality...practically perfection!
Build quality and features surpass all competitors. These boats are built for serious water and serious fishing!
We love the floor space and the great look of the boat.
This will sound like a broken record, but strength of design and construction are what I enjoy most about this boat. My 1978 22' Duckworth is 34 years old with plenty of beauty/character marks on her and I still get complements on the dock. There is nowhere I wouldn't feel safe and secure on the water, including the Columbia in 60+ mph winds with 6-7' swells. Been there done that. The 19' Hewescraft that started toward the launch from three miles out with me, arrived much later and way worse for the wear. She, ‘Happy Hour’ will be with me for life. The next owner will be buying a 60+ year old boat, still ready for more service. Just feed her a new engine if hers wears out- I don't think it will though. Update: She got an over skin in last 5' of bottom and 12"up transom due to battery acid damage that was discovered last season. I had them use 3/16" aluminum so the majority of back area is now 3/8" thick doubled up. I could probably go stump jumping now if I was so inclined...lol.
Ride, safety, comfort and piece of mind.
The comfort and feeling of security is outstanding. I have had the boat one year now and have 2000 miles on her, 1600 miles of that are at 3 mph while trolling. Without my Offshore 24, I would not have caught half the fish I have, as it would have been too rough. I fish a lot by myself so having autopilot, and the best boat for rough water of its size on the market allows me to fish the worst conditions solo with confidence. Fishing in the rough has allowed me to catch three trophy Rainbows in the last year.
I love how a Duckworth looks on the water, and the performance is unprecedented among other boats that I have owned. I always dreamed of owning a Duckworth and the Advantage series made that possible for me.
I love the fit/finish of my Duckworth Boat. The company's attention to detail, backed by unquestionable quality and strength is what drew me to the Duckworth family of boats. Running the rivers is what made me decide on the Silverwing.
My Advantage Outboard is worth every penny that I spent on her!! Duckworth is the best aluminum boat brand out there and I am very happy to be part of the Duckworth family!
We enjoy the fine fit and finish; although, equally as important, we enjoy the geometry of the deep V hull design with reverse chine and delta pad and ability to fly over wind chop. It is a very comfortable to ride around all trimmed out. I love the offshore bracket as well. Oh, and it is one heck of a fishing machine! Look out pelagic and anatropous creatures. Reel Work is underway!
Great boat, great company!
For a small boat (prior boat was a 48' Offshore Yacht Fisher) I like the 21.5'' for several reasons- layout, easy to maintain, great ride, style, and all the compliments it receives at the dock. I have been on a lot of boats over the last 40 years and this boat, for its size, is setup just right. Rigged for salmon fishing and long day trips, it is a pleasure to get out on the water.
It is a very comfortable boat. The wide bottom and high sides are a nice touch. The boat fishes very nice, stays right on trackside- drifting and back-trolling. It also runs great in skinny water!
The workmanship of the consistent Heliarc welds, fit and finish, and design as compared to many of the other boats I have seen, sets the quality of the Duckworth heads and shoulders above other boats. When I was shopping for boats five years ago at the boat shows, those specific features convinced me to purchase a Duckworth.
The smooth ride and construction.
