Jubilee is a 2007 George Buehler designed Diesel Duck 382 built to yacht standards by Sea Horse Marine in Zhuhai, China. Diesel Ducks have won several People’s Choice awards at TrawlerFest events over the years. Sailors looking to move into the trawler life and trawler lovers alike marvel at the impeccable workmanship and materials. She is a full displacement steel passage maker with a single diesel engine and a sail assist/get home balanced rig with roller furling jib and roller furling main with boomless main sail trimmed with a traveler bar control and four Harken winches.
Jubilee is a slightly smaller version of the popular Diesel Duck 462. At 41′ long, it is a 3/4 version of the Diesel Duck 462. It is 10′ shorter and one foot narrower. There are subtle modifications in dimensions measuring a foot here and there. Both models have the same size master stateroom bed, the 382 has narrower walk around. The biggest difference is that the 382 has one head instead of two.
She is seaworthy, livable and affordable. If your cruising goals include unlimited travel in comfort with the dependability of diesel propulsion combined with the reliability of sail, please take a close look at the details included in this incredible trawler. She has been is lightly used and completely equipped for long distance cruising. She would also be a fine vessel for doing the popular “Great Loop”. For the last several years she has been cruising the Great Lakes and stored each winter in a heated facility.
Designed with long range ocean crossing capabilities, the Seahorse Diesel Duck 382’s are easy to handle and a very comfortable live-aboard. All large window frames, i.e., the pilothouse windows, are tapped and gasketed for storm shutters as standard. There are four hatches; one each over the forward and aft cabins and two over the saloon. These are heavy duty aluminum manufactured to ship standards with stainless steel lockdown handles. Jubilee has (11) opening port holes in the hull built to the same ship standards with heavy grade aluminum and glass. Each has two stainless steel screw down seals including a screw down heavy aluminum “dead light (cover)” which can be dogged down water tight if necessary. The hatches and port holes are all equipped wish bug screens for ventilation as are the sliding opening windows in the pilothouse. Jubilee was built for long range cruising and is equipped for cruising anywhere in the world.
Exterior Decks and Hull:
Swim step, cockpit:
Access to the cockpit is from either side or the stern. The cockpit deck level is high off the water and is finished with a natural teak sole and is dressed with a fully covered Bimini with a rigid stainless frame finished in a beautiful Navy all weather fabric. The cockpit is fully covered with custom stainless framing for the beautiful awning.
As you enter the pilothouse from the spacious cockpit you note the airiness of the pilothouse. Once inside the pilothouse the windows which completely surround the space provide a very open and airy feel with unrestricted visibility in all directions for navigation and close quarters handling. To starboard is the helm station and very spacious chart table with large storage compartment and drawers.
The helm station is complete with everything at your fingertips and with a very comfortable helm seat. Your crew can stretch out on the large settee and there is a large teak table for working or dining. Across from the settee is a large navigation station with hinged countertop for storage of charts and navigational tools.
From the Pilothouse you walk down a few steps into the very large saloon. The joinery in the built in shelving and settee as well as the teak and holly sole is impeccable. There is ample light from a watertight hatch above as well as from the 4 large portholes.
On the 382, the forward cabin features two stacked berths to starboard with storage lockers under. There are storage compartments and drawers to port with clothes washing machine in cabinet over large storage locker. Aft of the forward cabin is the head to port and shower compartment to starboard.
Aft of the head/shower is the saloon with settee to starboard and table. To port are book shelves, storage compartments and 26′ flat screen TV.
Head and shower:
The shower and toilet are smartly placed across the companionway from each for efficiency and are amply sized and nicely equipped.
Aft of the saloon is the walk thru galley to port which leads to the aft cabin. This is under the pilothouse. In the galley is a waterproof door to the engine room which takes up the rest of the space under the pilothouse and has standing headroom.
Aft of the galley is the owner’s stateroom with centered queen berth with storage under. Hanging lockers and storage compartments and drawers are on each side. The freezer is also located in the aft stateroom behind the waterproof door. There is a full-length mirror in the stateroom.
Entry into the Engine Room is through a full size water tight door. With 6’7” Headroom throughout it is a very comfortable space for engine checks or maintenance. Access to all systems and filters is easy to see and understand. The amount of space rivals that of much larger boats and makes taking care of machinery on Jubilee a pleasure.
George Buehler’s “sail assist/get home balanced rig” is with roller furling jib, roller furling main, boom less main with traveler bar control (4) Harken winches. The windlass can be controlled for either helm station or at the windlass.
