Duffy 22’ Cuddy Cabin launched in Airlie Beach QLD for new venture

Airlie Beach has just received it’s first whisper-quiet, emission free electric boat! Tam & Dale Tansley from Airlie Beach DaySailing decided it was time for a change of tack and they swapped their charter sailboat for a luxurious & comfortable Duffy 22’ Cuddy Cabin electric boat for a new venture they are setting up, operating out of Airlie’s Coral Sea Marina. WhisperCruises will offer sunset and scenic turtle watching cruises in a small and private setting, within walking distance from Airlie Beach town centre. Their tours run for an hour and may include up-close sightings of dugongs, turtles, sting rays, sharks or maybe even a croc!

The Duffy 22’ electric boat seats up to 12 people (including skipper) and her 16 batteries offer a full day cruising at speeds up to 5.5 knots. The Duffy 22’ is extremely stable for a boat of that size which results in a smooth boating experience, even when the wind picks up. The Duffy electric boat can be recharged from dock-side power making her very efficient to run and her electric drive system is virtually maintenance free. Contact Eco Boats to learn more about the possibilities of Duffy electric boats for your boat hire operation.
