What you need to know

Renting a Duffy Electric Boat is the best way to enjoy a fun filled morning, afternoon or evening cruising the Gold Coast waterways with your family and friends. When you glide across the water in a Duffy Electric Boat, you’ll be treated to a totally different boating experience. Silky smooth and whisper quiet, it’s the classy alternative to polluting, loud and offensive outboards. Your family, friends and even your senses will thank you!

It’s not just a boat, it’s a lifestyle. Cruising in a safe, green, clean and quiet Duffy Electric Boat is like having your own limo on the water. Representing “waterfront” living at its finest, it’s the perfect way to personally unwind or to entertain! Whether you want a romantic cruise with that special someone or the perfect party location for your next event, Duffy Down Under has the boat for you! All of our new 18-foot Duffy boats can accommodate up to 10 adults. Each boat has a full canopy top, full window enclosures and a great sounding CD player with iPhone hookup. Duffy Electric Boats are extremely easy to operate and there is no need to have a boat license to drive one.
