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.

We used the service on the 13th April 2016 and we had an amazing time. We were 11 of us out of which 5 were kids. Neesa the owner of the company took us around and was very kind to allow our kids to have a ride on her boat which made the kids all excited and thrilled. I would... More

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.

Three generations of the family (6 of us) booked a Duffy Snug Classic for 2 hours. We were very well looked after, given good advice on where to buy prawns, ice, etc. and then given glasses and everything else we needed. These boats are brilliant, easy to drive and quite manageable, even in the wakes of a few speedy launches... More
