Thirsty Thursday From a Duffy

Happy Thirsty Thursday from a Duffy in Newport Harbor!

 
 
Happy Thirsty Thursday from somewhere on a Duffy in Newport Harbor! Recently, I had Compass agents that came in from Seattle and New York City. My Seattle agent friend, Julian Aguirre said he wanted me to take him out to do something ‘very Newport.’ Which I replied, have you ever been on a Duffy? ‘What’s a Duffy?’ he responded?
 
Well there was a big issue. If you come to Newport ever, you have to go on a Duffy ride. So I called up A Market, ordered a charcuterie board, grabbed a bottle (or two) of Rose and said meet me at 3:45 at the dock. Pretty sure on every visit now, Julian and Michael will be getting a Duffy!
 
Marshall ‘Duffy’ Duffield spent a lifetime on the water, as an offshore sailboat racer, designer and builder, operator of large power boats and founder of the Duffy Electric Boat Company and even more recently, former Mayor of Newport Beach and currently a City Councilman. 
 
In 1968, at the age of 16, Duffy invented his first electric boat. He placed the motor from a secondhand golf cart into the hull of a beat up motorboat. He never dreamed he be launching the prototype of the Duffy boat. Now it’s recognized worldwide as one of the finest electric powered watercraft available.
 
There has been over 3,500 Duffy electric boats sold into Newport Harbor since 1970 and Duffy Electric Boat Rentals of Newport Beach holds the worlds largest Duffy electric boat fleet.
 
So cheers to Thirsty Thursday on a Duffy Boat! So glad that I could teach you how to Duffy Julian and Michael!!!
