Design heritage from the seasoned Pacific Northwest salmon trollers, this Diesel Duck 44 is just one of the successful George Buehler designed Diesel Ducks. Destiny was built at the famed Seahorse Marine factory and is CE Certified Class A Open Ocean. The Troller Yacht is more a performance cruiser than a traditional trawler being more affordable to build, maintain, and operate; it is easily handled by a short-handed crew and perfectly comfortable for extended stays aboard. An impressive cruising range of more than 3000NM puts "Destiny" in a category of ocean crossing trawlers much larger than her modest size. Her sail rigging serves several purposes: heaving too, sail assist, stability, and a source of emergency power. 

Destiny is for sale by owners who have cruised her primarily in the Med for the last 9 years and have now completed their cruising goals while having maintained Destiny in excellent condition.

Judy has sold more than 150 trawlers and fast trawlers and specializes in steel yachts, including previous Diesel Duck sales.
