1998 Duffy 42 Flybridge Cruiser (finished and launched in 1999)

Dover, New Hampshire

$339,000

It is rare indeed to see a 42’ Duffy Flybridge Cruiser come on the market. MARGAUX has had only 2 owners. Her present owner purchased her in 2001. He took her back to the builder, Atlantic Boat, to have a custom hardtop fabricated with a full enclosure, and cabin Espar as well as flybridge heat running off port engine. He then used her lightly around Penobscot Bay, Maine. In 2006, as the boat sat on her mooring, she had a lightning strike. Consequently, all electronics and electrical equipment were replaced and now she has back-up electronics (redundancy). New foam upholstery had been installed, and new solar panels. She is powered with Twin 420 hp Cats with under 2000 hours. She has a bow thruster, electric windlass, 3 zone air conditioning, Espar heater, 12kw Northern Lights generator, new 2020 AGM batteries, two cabins and two heads, and a spacious main salon with galley up. Please come and inspect this handsome vessel. Thank you for your interest.
