Diesel Duck 462

Diesel Duck 462
Asking $495,000 US
Located in Marmaris, Turkey
Dora Mac is back on the market after a summer cruise from London to Marmaris, Turkey through the rivers and canals of Europe. We arrived in Marmaris on September 8th where the boat was pulled out of the water and a refit of finish and systems was done. We had put Dora Mac on the market briefly in January 2014 but soon decided to do one last cruise back to Turkey.
We have lived aboard for eight years now, 3 ½ in SE Asia, 2 ½ in the Mediterranean, 1 in Europe and now back in the Mediterranean.
It is seriously for sale, fully equipped and cruise ready. Since this will be the end of our cruising life, all tools, spares, galley wares, cruising guides, charts, books, etc come with the boat.

I have too many spares and supplies to list.

We are letting the live aboard equipment go with the sale including galley wares, large slow cooker, electric tea pot, toaster, heavy duty blender, two copier/scanner/printers, one of which is color, cruising guides and cruising books too numerous to list, bed linens, towels, cleaning supplies, etc, etc.
I’ve probably even got clothes that don’t fit me anymore.

Our average fuel burn performance over the life of the boat has been 1.6 gallons an hour at 1500 RPM. I have done the reverse course several times and with a clean bottom the average is 6.55 knots at exactly 1500 RPM.
1.6 GPH equals about 1.08 liters per NM so with full tanks of 7,500 liters and a 10% reserve, you have a range of 6,750 NM.
The main engine should have 85% of its service life left and the gen-set even more. The watermaker membranes will likely need replacing if you’re going to be in a situation where you actually need to make water. We haven’t and membranes live longer the more they are used.
The boat has two heads, one with separate shower area. It has a main aft cabin with a walk around queen size mattress. The front cabin has over/under bunks with the bottom one being extra wide. The salon settee folds out to make another bed for two well acquainted people. The pilothouse settee sleeps one quite comfortably and where Ruth and I sleep off watch on passages. The cockpit sleeps two if you want to sleep outside in good weather and look up at the stars.
I have a Wi-Fi antenna I pull up the mast in marinas and it works well.
Work done in Marmaris:
Antifouling done with International Uni Pro paint, all hatches and pilothouse doors removed, stripped, primed, and painted, all pilothouse windows stripped, primed, and painted. Both bimini canvasses replaced with good Sunbrella, Raymarine 4KW radar and cable replaced by Raymarine with new, areas on hull and topsides repaired and refinished, buff and polish the remainder of exterior, anchor and paravane fish galvanized, anchor chain reversed, chain locker and some dunnage boxes painted, polishing all stainless steel, varnishing of the pilothouse table, replaced the cutlass bearing, replaced aft hatch glass, replace the engine room carpet, recover the salon dining table settee, replace the interior illumination lights, service Muir windless, and more minor improvements and adjustments.

We have cruised on Dora Mac for eight wonderful years now and have decided to build our dream home on some property we recently purchased in Virginia. With the most recent work done and my improvements and additions, I believe the boat is in better shape than new.
If you have any questions about the boat then please contact me via email from our website above.
This boat built in North America or Europe would be over one million dollars. Our asking price is $495,000 but we are looking for offers.

Re: Diesel Duck 462

I saw a Diesel Duck recently in San Diego. Wow is that a solid boat! If I was ever to switch to a trawler the Duck would be on the top of my list. Best of luck finding her next owner.
