|"Black Duck" is a stunning traditional style blue water passage-maker. Based on the Hartley Queenslander (with Morris Griffiths influence). Below the water-line the long integrated keel, deep rudder and fine entry are the reasons why she performs so well in a seaway. The large cockpit is well drained and uncluttered. The wide side decks and lightly cambered coach house make for safe easy deck-work. Below deck you relax in the spacious (headroom well over 6') and inviting saloon.
The build quality and attention to detail is simply outstanding. The epoxy/ferro hull boasts the best finish for such construction that we have seen. The timber fit-out is to the highest standard. The deck gear, fittings and furnishings are in keeping with traditional style but with a modern twist in terms of function.
Immaculate is a word we use very carefully when describing any boat however when it comes to "Black Duck" there is no hesitation. She is truly immaculate throughout. Built as a bluewater and comfortable liveaboard, "Black Duck" is Australian-registered. She has crossed the Tasman.
Step on board and you will fall in love.

||"Black Duck"s hull is a Hartley Queenslander-design but the custom cabin-top is based on the lines of a Morris Griffiths or a Wylo. The result is a well balanced yacht that goes well to windward and handles all conditions very comfortably and safely.
Attention to detail and meticulous on-going maintenance by the owner-builders have produced a very special yacht.
Ideal as a liveaboard or bluewater cruiser. Inspection recommended.
