The Original Duffy Location

2001 W. Coast Hwy

Rent From The Original Duffy

In 1968, Marshall “Duffy” Duffield placed the motor from a secondhand golf cart into the hull of a motorboat, launching the prototype for the first Duffy Electric Boat. Over 50 years later, Duffy Boats are cruising through bays and lakes worldwide with more than 4,000 individually owned Duffy Boats in the Newport Harbor alone. In addition to the Duffy Factory, Sales, and Service departments, our rental company is the only one owned by Duffy himself. That’s why you can expect our rentals to be the highest quality, most up-to-date, and most well maintained Duffys around.

All of our rentals accommodate 10 people total (regardless of age or size).

Yes!  Furry friends under 25lbs are welcome to come along and enjoy the bay cruise!

We have bottled water available, but don’t offer any other food or beverage. You are welcome to bring your own food and drinks to enjoy on the boat. We currently don’t have any merchandise for sale.

We sell gift cards in our rental office. If you are not able to come in, please contact [email protected] and we can make arrangements to mail the gift card to you.

You must be 21 years old to rent a Duffy Boat. Our boats are as easy to drive as a golf cart and they have a top speed of 5 mph. Before you depart, we provide a detailed map of the Newport Harbor, explain the boundaries and popular routes, and cover how to operate the boat.

Yes, we have life jackets for all ages. Children 12 and under are required by law to wear a life jacket while on board. Infants in a car seat or baby carrier are not required to wear a life jacket, however, we still provide you with one to have on board. All adult life jackets are stowed underneath the seat cushions.
Every Duffy Electric Boat rental has a stereo system on board, complete with radio and Bluetooth for connecting to your Bluetooth enabled devices.
We have free parking at our location, however, space is limited so carpooling is highly recommended. If our on-site lot is full upon arrival, street parking may be available, or there is metered parking at the large public lot across Pacific Coast Highway, located at 208 Tustin Avenue (the “Avon Lot”).
We recommend arriving 20 minutes before your reservation time in order to get checked in and find parking.
You are welcome to bring any food or beverage—and if you bring a cooler, we’ll supply the ice!
Absolutely! Duffy Electric Boats is a very kid-friendly environment! We have activity books filled with coloring pages and a fun “I Spy…” game—and they can enter into our monthly coloring contest as well! The Harbor is filled with exciting sights including various sea life, regular sailboat races, commercial fishing boats, and even a Ferris wheel at the Fun Zone!
We have a 24-hour cancellation policy for our standard rentals. If your reservation is not cancelled prior to 24 hours before your scheduled rental time, you will be charged in full.
You will not be able to access the boats until everyone in your party is present and you are ready to depart the dock. Due to limited functional dock space, if any portion of your party is going to be late, you may load the boat, depart the dock, and then return to the dock to pick them up when they arrive—you may not sit on the boat at the dock and wait. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.

THROWBACK THURSDAY! 

Did you know that Duffy electric boats have been around for over 50 years?

Family owned and made in America, 🇺🇸 the very first electric Duffy boat was created in 1967 when Marshall "Duffy" Duffield placed a motor from a secondhand golf cart into the hull of a beat-up motorboat. Who would have thought that would become the prototype for #DuffyElectricBoats! 
Despite being told the batteries would only last a few miles due to drag in the water, currents, and wind, the Duffy Electric Boat exceeded everyone's expectations! 

The Edison 20' is the boat that put Duffy Electric Boats on the map. It's been smooth sailing ever since!
