Designed based on our extremely popular Duffy 18′ Packet and 18′ Balboa models, the Duffy 18′ Snug Harbor features some exciting new improvements. One of the major differences is the new, redesigned hull, which has been widened to really open up the interior space of the boat and give individuals the freedom to move around freely inside the boat. The Snug Harbor comes in at a full foot wider than our Duffy 18′ Packet II model. Combine the extra width of the boat, along with the unfixed, movable tables and the side-steering helm (thanks to our patented Duffy PowerRudder), and you’ve got a completely different boat with an open interior to move about. The Snug Harbor has become one of our most popular models available thanks to the redesigned shape of the boat. The beautiful spacious interior offers solid wood forward and aft tables, along with a center galley which can accommodate the optional refrigerator! The new three step entry on both sides of the boat makes it extremely easy for anyone to get in and out of the boat! There’s also a built in ice chest under the aft side seat! The fully insulated ice chest drains straight to the bilge pump. With the automatic float switch sensor, there is no need to take the ice out yourself! One of the biggest changes to come to the 18 Snug Harbor is the location of her batteries. Rather than being under the seats like on our previous models, the batteries are now located in the keel of the boat. This provides great stability and tracking, along with opening up the space under the seats for storage! Our new “”Duff Eze III” polycarbonate window system is fully UV proof, and keeps you warm and toasty on the coldest of days. The enclosure will also keep any rain or dirt outside the boat, without the need of a full boat cover! Just unplug, untie, and unwind! Like all Duffy models, the 18 Snug Harbor comes with the new Fusion Marine 50 watt per channel stereo. Play music, or take calls wirelessly with Bluetooth, or plug in for a quick charge while you play your favorite songs through the USB port! We here at Duffy are very proud of this new model, and we look forward to building you one of America’s first and finest electric boats as we have since 1970! Like all of our Duffy Electric Boats, the 18′ Snug Harbor is made in USA.
