Description:

The Gold Coast's quietest and only Zero Emission Electric Boat Company....

The Gold Coast's quietest and only Zero Emission Electric Boat Company. Cruising in a safe, green, clean and quite Duffy Electric Boat is like having your "Own Limo on the Water". Renting a Duffy Electric Boat is the best way to enjoy a fun day 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! Duffy Electric Boats are extremely easy to operate, self drive, and no boat license is required. Each boat comfortably sits up to 10-12 people. With four boats in the fleet they can accommodate up to 42 guests at any one time. Each boat has a full canopy top, full window enclosure, and great sounding CD player with iPod hookup. Something to celebrate? Duffy Electric Boats are the perfect way to spend a birthday, anniversary, HEN'S party, Christmas Parties, retirement, date night, or party with family, friends, or out of town guests. Activities can be organised to your specific needs, specialising in superb nautical events.

I escorted 30 clients on a fun day in Surfers Paradise with a Duffy Boat experience followed by high tea at Versace. What can I say, Duffy truly delivered with a very special fun time with three of their electric boats where all can play captain. I dealt with Nitsa from the start who is wonderful, no hard sell, but... More

Well what a great way to spend time with family and friends. I live on the coast and have never seen the G/Coast waterways in such a great way. I suggest you get to Duffy Down Under and have a great day out for what ever occasion.

This was a fantastic way to experience the waterways of the Gold Coast. The boat was really well appointed and spacious, even with the 8 people we had on board. The Duffy staff really loked after us and made sure we had a great trip.
