New 44 DUCK
3rd and last Diesel Duck 44, hit the drink right side up this
June 2003. Her topside finish is simply unbelievable as the photos
with the reflections in them show. Keep in mind this is a steel
boat! Jurgen (the owner) opted for forward slanting pilot house
windows. It looks good! Since this boat Seahorse has consintrated
on the 462 and the 362. However plenty of other places would like
to build one!
bow thruster openings! Note the multiple zincs. This makes a
lot of sense because strange marinas can have very strange currents
in the water!

steel hull. This photo also shows how incredibly "fair"
the rub rail is. Thisreally is quite a photo.....
The launch is always exciting. We know she'll
float right side up but still, it's always good to SEE her float

to have a great deal of fun with her....

features increase. Today you can buy a radar for $800, and GPS
Jurgten installed the sail system.
It's not as large as designed but it will still do its job.
she is at the Hong Kong Yacht Club, just about ready to head
out. This is the third Seahorse built DUCK to leave China on
her own bottom, something we're quite proud of.
Winter 03-04 news note. Jurgen left Hong Kong
and cruised to the Philippines. The passage was very rough, but
the DUCK made it without any difficulties. Since then, they've
done the Suez canal, ran the Red Sea gauntlet, and November 05
finds them in Turkey.
