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 people. With four boats in the fleet they can accommodate up to 40 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, 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. « less

We have been meaning to try these boats for a long time but when we had some unexpected visitors pop in we thought it would be the perfect way to treat the family to something different. This company exceeded ours and... More

I have hired the boat twice this year and the service is perfect. A great way to impress friends new to the Gold Coast and being able to explore the canals at own pace is great. The boat is well maintained and staff very friendly. Thanks for an awesome time

We had a great time cruising the waterways of the Gold Coast. We toured all the canals as suggested by the Duffy staff. It was really fun to see the houses, boats and people that live along the waterways following the route map Duffy provided. This allowed us to just sit back and enjoy the scenery.
