Duffy’s 50 Year History

Duffy Fifty Years

We've Created A Few Slideshows Which Showcase Some Of The Important Moments In Our Company's History, Complete With Photos, Videos And More!

How It All Began

When Marshall “Duffy” Duffield placed the motor from a secondhand golf cart into the hull of a beat-up motorboat more than 45 years ago, he never dreamed he’d be launching the prototype for the Duffy electric boat.  Now recognized worldwide as the finest electric-powered watercraft available, Duffy boats are built to your specifications, with the finest marine quality materials and your choice of seating and table configurations.

Design, Durability and Aesthetics

Designed to outmaneuver all other electric boats, Duffys are built and hand laminated for durability, as well as aesthetics, at our 5-acre facility in Adelanto, CA. Since all parts are created in our own factory, the craftsmanship built into every Duffy meets the highest quality control standards for withstanding the rigors of a saltwater environment. All cabinets and tables are custom crafted in our woodshop, using the finest solid, marine quality Cherrywood, and only the highest quality canvas and foam is incorporated into each finished Duffy.

The Leader in Electric Boat Manufacturing

Widely recognized as the leader in electric boat manufacturing, Duffy Electric Boats is the official boat manufacturer for Disney’s California Adventure Park. Duffys are also used in corporate venues world-wide, including Marriott Hotels and the famed Nature Conservancy in Naples, Fla. We are also the vessel of choice for the environmentally stringent California Fish and Game Department for their exploration of sensitive marine life habitats.
