New Duffy 22’ electric hire boat on Melbourne’s Yarra River
Eco Boats Australia supplied a new Duffy 22’ Cuddy Cabin electric boat to Melbourne Boat Hire at the beginning of the year, bringing their number of Duffy boats for hire on the Yarra River to 3.
Ideal for picnic cruises and sunset trips the Duffy 22 is the flagship of the range, seating up to 12 people. Duffy boats have long been popular for hire boat operations the world over and on the waters of Newport Beach, California (the birthplace of Duffy boat) there are dozens of Duffy boats for rent (and many more privately owned).
The 22’ Duffy Cuddy Cabin is a breeze to drive and thanks to its inventive ‘power rudder’ it’s easy to manoeuvre and can be docked in tight spaces. At almost 2 tonnes the boat is very stable and offers more than a full day of running time thanks to its sizable battery bank.
