A wooden Duck?!

I thought this price seemed too good to be true! A 2013 D.D for about $200k!

Upon further review I noticed her hull material was wood. What do you diehard Diesel Duckers say about her??

2013 Diesel Duck 40 Power Boat For Sale - www.yachtworld.com

Here's the info from the builder, Wayne Shibley

I must say, the build photos are amazing!

A handsome vessel; not like the maximum-volume, cruise-ship-style boat. The four-cylinder John Deere engine is similar to mine. Good engine.

Okay, but what about the four letter word? WOOD

She's a lovely design, beautifully built and lovingly maintained.

Like steel, a wood boat will last virtually forever if attended to. Like steel, it will quickly fall into disrepair if left to her own.

Wood boats clearly aren't for everyone, but I don't think they're more difficult or expensive to maintain than the same design built in steel.

If the plans were for wood and construction was faithful to the plans, then why not?
The only proviso being that she may not have the ultimate strength of a steel hull, but you may not require that anyway.

I recall a wood DD for sale in or near Northport, Michigan within the last few years. This may be that boat.

For a 40 foot, 5 year old boat, the price seems low. She's a beauty though. That's the kind of boat I'd love to have my friend buy!!

I like this boat. I read the build blog a while back . Looks like a heck of a deal for somebody. If you have some woodworking skills it would be a plus . The fact that it’s practically a new build and a nice build at that, with care it could outlast it’s new owner.

We're building a 41' Duck in wood. The designer, George Buehler, was a big fan of dry stacks and keel cooling. We're still going back and forth on heat exchangher vs keel cooling.

Are you the owner or the builder? Good luck.

Coming from the work boat world I prefer keel cooler and dry stack. Beuhler's designs have a strong work boat influence.


Keel cooler and dry stack are easier to maintain and less prone to problems. But on a wood boat it won't be possible to install a 'real' keel cooler. And the dry stack will cost you some interior space. If not properly installed dry stack will be nosier and hotter than wet exhaust.

Ok, I'll bite, why do you think a wood duck can't have a real keel cooler? Plenty of Chesapeake Bay wood work boats have commercially built keal coolers.

Some wooden work boats keel coolers are a galvanized steel pipe running for and aft, very simple but effective.

Yes, I've seen a number of them at the boatyard in Chance, MD.

I'm being fussy about the terminology. A keel cooler is structurally part of the keel and very resistant to damage from dead heads, minor groundings etc.

A wood or composite hull will have pipes or a Fernstrum style grid coolers attached to the hull. Those are often referred to as keel coolers. They work well and offer most of the advantages of a true keel cooler.

no reason at all a wood boat can't be keel cooled.
