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.

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.
