Jon Duffie:

Born to build boats.

Having been born into a family of boaters Jon has been on the water since he was two years old. By the time he was 16, he was completely comfortable navigating and running any vessel from a skiff to a large sportfish. He was fortunate to grow up in Ocean City during the peak of the sportfish charter industry. Always willing to work and learn from anyone that would offer their time, Jon quickly gained a reputation as a good captain.  As his fishing experience grew so did his knowledge of boats.  He learned how the design and layout of a boat is critical to being able to perform proper maintenance and how this goes hand in hand with better fishing performance and ease of use.

 Experience influences Design.


Throughout his career of charter fishing and fishing the tournament circuit, Jon has overseen numerous custom builds and re-fit projects with some of the best boat builders in the industry. Every project completed has led Jon further down the path to becoming a boat builder. Years of traveling from the Northeast down the East Coast, throughout the Caribbean, Mexico, Dominican Republic, through the Panama Canal, and venturing into the Pacific putting thousands of miles behind the wheel of a vessel have given Jon a broad knowledge base. All of these experiences on the different boats that Jon has had a hand in the design from the keel up have helped shape his desire to take the next logical step in his career and transition from a boat captain to a boat builder.
