(LOCATION: Upstate NY on Lake Ontario) This Diesel Duck 44 trawler / motorsailer is a unique blue water cruiser built by Seahorse Marine. Built during the 1970's fuel crisis she combined a sleek hull with John Deere diesel engines to provide cruising with low fuel consumption. She features a pilothouse, sun deck, open salon, galley with dinette, and two staterooms. This steel-hulled trawler is ready to cruise, take an extensive journey, and has room to live aboard.

On deck we have an expansive foredeck with room for a garden. The enclosed pilothouse provides all-weather operation. There is a sun deck aft for relaxing and entertaining.

The steel pilothouse has deck access to either side. The well equipped helm has an Icom VHF radio, Raymarine radar and chartplotter, Auto Nav autopilot, Danforth Corsaire compass, and Icom M710 SSB radio. There is guest seating behind the helm. Stairs aft lead to the master cabin and forward to the salon.

The salon is open with settee seating, dining table, TV, and sound system. The galley is to starboard with Starboard galley with double sink, Nova Cool refrigerator, Force 10 3-burner range with oven, and Sharp Carousel Microwave Oven.

There are two staterooms. The forward stateroom features upper & lower berths, under-berth storage, hanging locker, and shelving. The guest head has toilet, vanity with sink, and separate shower. The master aft cabin has double berth and ample storage. The ensuite master head has toilet, vanity with sink and shower stall.

Powered by a 75-hp Deere diesel engine this trawler is designed for economical cruising. There is a Westerbeke generator for offshore operation. Call now for more information and to schedule a showing of this classic 44’ Diesel Duck.
