Atlantic Boat Company is pleased to introduce the City of Gloucester’s new DUFFY-26 Launch, Gloucesterman. This new launch has successfully passed the 24+1 stability test and received a temporary COI from the United States Coast Guard. It was transported to Gloucester from the builder in Maine by West Marine Transport.
Gloucester is one of America’s oldest seaports, with a rich seafearing history of fishing and shipbuilding. Looking toward the future of the waterfront and hoping to improve boaters’ accessibility to and from the harbor’s 200+ moorings, the city’s 28 guest moorings, and a large inner harbor anchorage, the city spent two years researching suitable launches before authorizing the purchase of Hull No. 77 of the DUFFY-26 Launch.
Gloucester joins a number of other new Duffy-26 Launch owners since last year: Plymouth Yacht Club (W. Douglas Edwards, Plymouth, MA); Portland Yacht Club (James M. Churchill, Falmouth, ME); Larchmont Yacht Club (
Certified as open launches, canopied launches, and enclosed launches the 24 + 1 passenger DUFFY-26 Launch is built to a high standard to meet our clients’ needs. Available in a Standard Package and Yacht Package, every boat comes standard with all safety and running equipment, is USCG inspected, and delivered ready for operation. Atlantic Boat Company’s Duffy line of boats are well-known for their rugged construction, fine finish, and ease of maintenance.
