Duchy 35: A Comprehensive Walkthrough

“A classic, timeless boat that will never go out of fashion.”

Shaft-drive diesels, long range, full keel, and classic good looks. If you’ve seen my previous video on the Duchy 35 in England, she’s a beauty, but she was full of a lot of shiny timber, which is not particularly practical for our market. So, in this video, we’re going to focus on the first Duchy 35 in Australia and all the features that this particular owner has fitted to this boat, which are much more suitable for our climate.

AUDIO TRANSCRIPT

So welcome to Quarantine Bay, guys! What you see behind me is actually where they used to drop off all the diseased people off ships coming and arriving from England. I’ve even got a family story. Many generations ago, some relatives of mine arrived here on a highly diseased ship, and they got the people off, stuck them in the quarantine station, and they set the ship on fire right out there and burnt it to the water line and sunk it. It was so full of germs. So there you go, a little bit of history.

But this is a beautiful place you could come to on a boat like this, and this particular Duchy has been equipped to suit Sydney Harbour Day boating and cruising further afield for a couple perfectly, in my opinion. We have a Seakeeper Gyro, we have the generator – we have a Fisher Panda generator, and it is on right now. Can you hear it? So this is going to be something I’m going to point out in a little bit more detail in a sec, but this boat, she’s stable, she’s quiet, and she’s super comfortable through the waves.

“It’s awesome that the startup and pack-down process on this boat is really simple with just one cover needed to enclose the whole cockpit area.”

What looks like timber is actually not timber. So everything you’re looking at here [the transom], I didn’t even know this was possible. Look at these curves and the design of what looks like timber. This is not timber; this is Flexiteek. It’s been custom done right the way across the decks here. It looks great, and I thought it was timber, but it’s not. So for your maintenance side, for the sun that we have in this country, you don’t have to worry.

I just think that it’s awesome that the startup and pack-down process on this boat is quite simple. There’s just one cover which attaches to the trailing edge of the rooftop and comes down and goes over this whole cockpit area. So you don’t have to cover the seats individually. Once that’s removed, you’re ready to rock and roll for the day. So super convenient, much better for our climate.

And we have the Seakeeper on right now; we do have waves rolling in, there is some swell. If you’re interested in how this boat drives in that swell, we have just done that quite a detailed video, driving it right up to full speed and taking the waves on all three points. That’s going to be separate to this, and I’ll link to that at the end of this video. Pricing’s in the description below, by the way; I know a lot of you asked me that quite regularly.

TRANSOM

So come out the back of the boat, Dan Jones is my name, g’day! If we haven’t met before, thanks for coming, thanks for joining; you’re watching Dan’s boat life. This is our fixed transom, and just want to pay attention to this rubber [attached to the edge of the swim platform] all the way around, and that goes forward. I’ll just capture some drone shots of that. This is just to give you a little bit of protection at the dock because she’s a beautiful blue hull, and we don’t really want to scratch that if we can avoid it.

We’ve got some storage in the opening door and the stainless cleats, which you’ll see on both sides. They’re just beautiful. Beautifully done. Really, really nice work. The name on the back, Kookaburra, I love it, very Aussie. It has been done in stainless steel, and it has some courtesy lights as you enter. Also, on the starboard side, we actually have the hot and cold swim shower that just pulls out of here, and it’s a twist operator to make that work.

“There’s a fantastic rubber bumper that goes along the boat’s edge to give you a little bit of protection at the dock.”

I know I’ve pointed this out in the previous video, but look at the stainless steel. Everything’s done in-house. These boats are actually made in England, in Falmouth, at least I think it’s Falmouth. Because all the towns sit so close together, they’ve got different names, and I get confused in England because I’m used to there being more space or some outback in between the towns.

And I was telling the guys before when I first traveled to London, I got a bus to Brighton, and I thought I was still in London because London didn’t end, there were people everywhere. Leave a comment in the description below, has that happened to you? I just got totally thrown anyway, whatever.

“These boats are made in Falmouth, England.”

COCKPIT

So we do have a particular custom layout of this boat, which is also more suitable, perhaps, for your Sydney day boat scene. I’ll go through that in more detail in a second. But we’re going for the full flow-through, so we don’t have all the highly polished Timber doors; we have the powder-coated black aluminium ones instead, and they’re constantly open to give us maximum flow-through. And then we have multifunctional furniture to allow everyone to sit around here [cockpit], but there’s more.

Underneath these seats [cockpit seats] are actually storage. Inside these storage lockers, we have some bags, and then there are little lunch tables which slot in. I’m going to cut to those so you can see. So we can actually sit at tables here [centre of cockpit].

And then underneath the deck hatch, this whole thing hinges up to port on a gas strut, and the Fisher Panda genset is centrally mounted aft, and it’s also insulated. So the insulation of the hatch is about that thick [3 inches], and then the Genset is in its insulation as well. The other thing that you’ll find when you’re in this storage space is the access to the steering gear. We have an autopilot as well that’s starboard aft, and all the batteries, main battery switches are all operated from inside. Also, breakers for things like your Seakeeper and then your electronic control system. What do we call it, sea bus? Empirbus. It’s quite interesting. I’m learning as much as I can, but I’m going to demonstrate what I know as we make our way through.

So, we’ve got a manual bilge pump there (port side of the cockpit), we’ve got some speakers just there [next to the bilge pump], we’ve got courtesy lights facing forward here [under the cockpit seats], and then I’m standing over the engine hatches.This particular boat has the upgraded Yanmars, so they are a V8 with 350 horsepower on Straight Shafts. And again, if you want to see how it drives, she’s plenty powerful, which does over 30 knots, and the props are quite torquey. So you can do some pretty good manoeuvring from side to side when you need. Making your way forward is done much better on the starboard side because this is the way to do it. You can go port, but you’d really need to have either long legs or be a little bit limber to throw a leg over and make your way up the port side with ease. But you do have good access all the way aft and forward (starboard side). Can you see that? We’re going to go up there in a sec.

“She’s got the upgraded Yanmar, V8, 350hp on straight shafts. She’s plenty powerful, which gets her over 30 knots, and the props are quite torquey. So you can do some excellent manoeuvring.”

Now, the other thing worth pointing out: tying fenders [sides of the boat]. See that, guys? That’s actually where you would secure a fender, and you’ve got a few of them dotted around the boat just to keep it looking good. And this track is to do with the cover so that there are no gaps. I mentioned the cover before; it zips on here [cockpit ceiling] and then it goes bolt ropes in these tracks and then completely protects everything.

Now, the next thing suitable for Australia – this mesh sunshade, and see the carbon fibre poles here [both sides of the transom]? They seems like they weigh nothing. They are probably grams, not kilos, so anyone can operate them. This has its own bag; we drove at full speed with this up. It doesn’t flap around; it’s totally fine. I was questioning that at the beginning of the day, thinking we’d need to take it off. Not necessary; totally fine; leave it up all day if you wish.

So I think I’ve covered everything there [cockpit]. A couple of downlights here [doorhead], just pay attention to the detail that we see in the roof; that’s very nice. That’s what you’d expect of this sort of style.

SALOON

Then, when we enter the saloon, we’ve got quite a bit going on here. So we can concertina this side closed (port side of the main door) if it was cold and you just wanted to enter and exit through here (main door); that’s an option. We’ve got the seat facing aft. So just imagine a whole big group of your friends all enjoying this space. That’s what that’s intended for, particularly with this Seakeeper on. It’s fantastic. It’s got inherent stability already because it’s got a low centre of gravity; you’ve got a keel, but adding that Seakeeper really does change the game.

“It’s got inherent stability already because it’s got a low centre of gravity; you’ve got a keel, but adding that Seakeeper really does change the game.”

So now you can bring the party indoors and enjoy a meal inside if you need to. Underneath me [saloon seats], there’s actually a drawer just below with some beautiful custom tools, which is an option because it’s all done by the guys at Cockwells.

They don’t just build Duchy; they also make beautiful Custom Superyacht Tenders. I think it was their original business. Imagine the billionaire guys who have these mega yachts and how they have these  – gorgeous, absolutely – I’ve been there, so this is why I’m trying to explain it to you — stunning tenders where every little detail has to be thought about.

The reason why I didn’t film it is because they signed non-disclosures with these guys; they’re not allowed to publicise what they’re making for these people. But I did get to see it with my own eyes, and it’s the level of craftsmanship and quality going on with all these young English guys and girls doing their thing. It’s quite impressive, and so the same mob are building these boats is what I’m trying to explain.

So, storage under here [starboard side saloon seat] , leather seats, but this layout is another one of the Australian sort of favourites because this particular owner had a real think about how he’s going to use his boat and how he and his wife would get the most enjoyment out of this thing. So yes, you can put a galley up; that’s possible, and I think we had that on the last boat. Galley up, and you’d have a fixed helm seat, facing forward. But if you’re like most Sydney people and you do a lot of day boating and then occasional overnighting and coastal trips, are your friends really going to stay the night with you? Do you really need that second cabin, or would it be better as storage? So this particular owner had a good hard think about that and realised, you know what? Our friends are gonna benefit more from having this space and having the galley down because 99% of the time we’re going to be doing this.

So look at all this seating; you can have the whole party around here [saloon]. I’ll just sit down. You could put eight people very comfortably and more if you needed to and with kids. Then you can move that whole group out here [cockpit] with a couple of director’s chairs and the tables in place. It’s just giving you the option because we do have air conditioning, and I’m going to show the outlets in a second. So it’s just really clever; like we’re only in a 35-foot boat, but we’re getting so much done.

“You can have the whole party around here. You could put eight people with kids very comfortably and more if you needed to.”

So I got a fridge here [under the saloon seat in the port side], more fridges. Underneath me [saloon sole], there’s actually a big suction cup, and it lifts up a very solid, well-insulated hatch, and that gives you access to the front of the motors and the Seakeeper, which is centre-line mounted.

Then we have the hot water-insulated cylindrical tank on the starboard side. I forgot to mention the water tanks; they are aft, 300 litres each side. They’re hard plastic, and they’re accessible from that aft hatch that we pointed out before. So that’s what’s going on there.

Your primary engine access here [main door sole], Ford engine access here [saloon sole], this table [saloon table] can drop down, there are cushions that’ll go in place and turn this into a bed. So on the one time in 10 years that you have some friends that want to stay the night or they have too many wines and they can’t drive home, they can sleep here. I think that’s sensible thinking.

So now we’ve got both of these seats [seats behind the helm] facing aft, but we can do this [flip the seats to face forward], boom! So, how good’s that? Plenty comfortable, lots of legroom for tall people. You know the owner is six foot three, and he reckons that’s probably about the limit height-wise for comfort. There was a little bit of space above his head, but knocking your head on the doorway for people six foot three and over would be a consideration, so just bear that in mind.

This window [next to the port side front saloon seat] goes up and down. It’s electric, so you actually just press a button, and this will go up and down electrically. I think that’s important even though this is air-conditioned. And the design of the roof has some overhang so it’ll knock out the hot midday sun. I like having that as an option.

We’ve got some reading lights here and here [above the port side front saloon seat window], proper chart table storage like you would expect on a sailing yacht or many of you are going to be used to, knickknack storage here and here [left side of the chart table], all of this timber is oak. So they probably have their own forest, and some guy called Barry who goes and selects the trees individually for you. I could just imagine some English guy with a chisel and a pencil in his ear and doing it all very well. I’m making it up, but I can just imagine that.

So that’s all very cool, now underneath here [helm seats] are more storage, but one of them… [opens the storage drawer under the starboard side helm seat] here we go, look at that [wine glasses] for details, guys. So that’s all felt – beautiful. Everything’s nicely arranged. Isn’t that lovely? And pay attention to the dovetail joints; it’s all good stuff. So there you go.

Now underneath me [sole/flooring between the helm seats] is, if you had the optional second cabin, it would be underneath this, but it’s actually a huge storage area. So I’m actually just going to lift that up now. See how big that is, guys? So you’ve got oodles of space for your cushions, bags, bits and pieces. You know, if you were doing a long trip, if you’re going to Hamilton Island, for example, you know booze is expensive there, so I would buy it in Sydney and store it in here for the trip, just an idea.

“The windows are heated glass, so in wintertime when you have the condensation, you could just press a button and you can get rid of it.”

So we’ve got an air conditioning outlet just next to the skipper. We have an inlet just there [By feet], we also have aircon above the windows. Next thing, these windows are actually heated glass, so in wintertime when you have the condensation, you could just press a button and you can get rid of it. Isn’t that cool?

HELM

I think one of the main advantages that many of you are going to be sort of looking for in a style about like this is a helm door. It really is a true advantage if you’re coming from sailing and you haven’t done motor-boating before, and you’re just getting into a style like this.

Your life will be better with a helm door because just picture all of your friends congregating in this part of the boat [saloon], and you’re going forward to pick up a mooring like we have today or you want to operate the anchor or just do something on the bow, you’re not having to weave your way in between all those people, and when seconds matter, it’s just nicer to be able to get straight to the decks, which you can on a setup like this. So I love that.

“It’s got a sliding helm door that enables you to get straight to the decks when seconds matter.”

The steering wheel is beautiful; this must be pointed out because it is a little work of art this one. That’s very nice, and all the little touches as we make our way around the boat are something that I know you’re going to appreciate, and it’s not something that you see on many boats which are more of a mass-market production style.

So – electronic throttles, power on, start-stop for the Yanmars, Yanmar digital diagnostics for both motors, and we can get fuel flow through those, bow thruster control, trim tab control, spotlight, AC, dual screens, and we’ve got chart plotter on the starboard screen, compass beautifully mounted on some timber just there on some oak. But, that whiz-bang electronic system that I was talking about is currently up on this screen; it actually allows you to monitor and control all the electronics on your boat. So you can switch the lights on; you can do everything from the genset to the AC to the lights. You can see your rudder angle indicator, your gauge levels; they’re all visible through here.

“ It even has functionality within the system that if it notices the power level dropping below a certain voltage, it fires up the generator and recharge your battery.”

But what it will also allow you to do, because there’s actually some mobile phone connectivity to this, so if you are on your way down to the boat and you live say half an hour away, and it’s a hot day, you can fire up the gennie and stick on the AC, so the cabin is going to be at your temperature before you arrive.

It even has functionality within the system that if it notices the power level dropping below a certain voltage, say you’ve had an electrical storm and the shore power’s gone out, it will actually sense that, fire up the gennie and recharge your battery. So that’s super handy for busy people.

And I also remember when I was in Falmouth visiting the factory with Sam last year, they can actually monitor every boat in the Duchy fleet. They had a big set of screens up there, and if anyone was having problems with their boat or any alarms were showing up, it actually comes up back at home base. So they’re ringing you before you know you have a problem. So go figure; that’s kind of cool!

Anyway, three-piece windscreen. We’ll head out to the front in a moment to take a look because I want to go downstairs first. So this is compromised for some and a benefit for others. I think for the Aussies, this is going to be a benefit. We’ve got the galley down, and if you went for the two-cabin option, this would actually be access to the second cabin because we would have a shower [port side] and a loo [starboard side] separate. But if you’re going to be using it like most Sydney Harbour day boaters or Melbourne or wherever you are around the country, you probably will value more of that open through-flow social space that we’ve just seen. What you’re going to sacrifice is that you’re not going to have a separate shower.

“You can use the generator to cool the cabin before arrival and in case of a power outage during a storm, it automatically starts the generator to recharge your battery.”

HEAD

So get in there [the head] and have a look. You’ll have what is quite a large toilet basin wet area with the opening window, and you’re just standing on those teak slats there. I assume that’s teak for the shower, which is fine. I’ll just get in there for perspective. I’ve still got that much space [a span] above my head while standing on this grate, and there’s plenty of arm-room to move around. So it is a proper cubicle, but the loo is going to get wet. So you decide whether that suits you or not. There’s a bit of storage in here [behind the vanity mirror], an extractor fan [above], and a window [on the side], which is all good stuff. The other thing I just want to point out is that this is magnetised [catch on the head door], so when you close… boom! Did you see that? Cool details!

GALLEY

So let’s just point back into the galley. She’s a neat galley, but what are you going to do? You’re probably going to heat up food. You’ve got your two burners, your sink, and your second fridge just there [under the sink], and storage underneath the burner.

I’ll just point out one cool thing – [opens the storage area for the crockery above the sink] this is the sort of theme once again, guys, and that’s all custom Duchy good stuff. That’s not plastic. Isn’t that lovely? She’s a hull style that is so forgiving; none of this is going to rattle around, and she’s also been designed properly so that they can’t.

“She’s a hull style that is so forgiving; none of the crockery is going to rattle around.”

There’s a microwave in there [above the galley countertop] and a little bit of storage behind me here [next to the microwave]. You also have this opening [above the storage and microwave] if you’re making some smells when you’re cooking. You’ve got some downlights just here [in the deckhead], and that looks like an extractor fan, so I would say that button there turns that on and off.

Now come forward. We have the two steps, and actually, one of them… I better point this out before we go forward, is the bin, quite a deep bin that pulls out. You can just put a bin bag on that, and then you’ve got these stainless steel grips which are both elegant but quite functional. They do work on your boat shoes or your bare feet, courtesy lights just there [under the steps].

CABIN

Okay so now let’s go forward and it’s a good use of limited space because we are now getting to the limits of our 35 feet in total. So if we had one door, we would stop access to port or starboard because the door is going to be double this length. So they’ve just done a double door is what I’m trying to point out and allows me to get in and go to either side.

So I’ll go to starboard and just come and have a look. And you have this on both sides, we have these storage bins, See that? All Corian countertops. So just get in there. You can also see the  construction of the hull, so all very nicely done.

And then we have these storage lockers all the way forward. I’ve got AC, I’ve got two opening little port holes on either side, if you want natural ventilation. And I have an aft facing opening escape hatch for ventilation.

This [mirror next the bed] is going to open and get us into the anchor locker, got some reading lights, you’re going to need to lie down a bit if you’re reading, you won’t sit up too well because of the roof design but that’s not a hinder there. and then you’ve got a little bit of storage for knickknacks just there [next to the mirror]

And we do also have cupboards because there’s a void in here [starboard side]. So this is deep storage in here [underneath the void] accessible via two doors, we have hanging locker [port side], excuse my equipment bag on the port side, so that’s a hanging locker. See how it lights up the little thing [cabinet light]? That’s cool.

But the final thing is that there’s actually a little… If I pull this [bed], the whole bed goes up on gas struts, and you can do that with one hand. There’s deep storage in here, access to the bow thrusters as well, but then you can also see your other drawers here. Beautiful dovetail joinery and nicely done. So that’s good sensible usage of space that we like to see in any boat really. So let’s go forward and have a look at the bow.

BOW

So the details, guys… stainless steel logo there [Duchy 35 logo at the starboard side], navigation lights, beautifully done. Making your way forward, just for safety, see the design of the roof here? This is a really easy grab hold. We have a grab hold up here [roof], so you’ve got that, but I just wanted to point that out if you didn’t notice.

“Beautiful dovetail joinery and nicely done.”

Also, the fairlead clips through here, and you can secure a springer forward and aft, nice and easy. Waste aft [on the decks near the helm door]. But all of you are going to want to know about the door, how does it work? You have one hatch like this on the inside and this one on the outside. [Opens the helm door through the hatch] Boom! So you’ve got stainless steel rails here [below the door] and up here [above the door] like a guiding rail, so to speak, and that’s how it works. Pretty easy, locking point forward, seems to work nice and simple.

There’s another one of those fender attachment points. But as soon as you go forward and you lose your grab handle here [roof], you gain a grab handle here [railings on bow], so boom! Just think about that!

Look at the waves, and now come back. See how stable we are? We have the Seakeeper on. If you have someone who is not happy on rocky boats, this is something to focus on in addition to the Seakeeper. So it really is cool.

One, two, three windscreen wipers, three-piece toughened glass, windshield heated as I mentioned. Let’s just focus on the roof, come up here and have a look back. So notice how much space we have? You could get up and walk around on this, but I’m also thinking people who want to store water toys. So this is the area where you’re probably going to do that if you have those floaty matty things or SUP boards or any of that sort of stuff. It’s going to go pretty well, you have somewhere to secure it, and it’s just a great place to put it.

So you’ve got your VHF aerial aft, you’ve got your Raymarine Centre Line mounted, very stylish mast there with the all-around white light, the horns, we’ve got our spotlight, another one, it’s quite bougie classic – it fits the style.

And then check this out [sunbed]! These cushions store below on that midship’s locker, that storage locker that I pointed out before. But this is what you do on a boat like this middle of Summer. Come and hang out up here. You’d need some colour-matched big cushions, go and find something that looks cool with the boat, make sure it fits all the other styling that you do on the inside, but that’s going to be really nice. I’m imagining one of those big soft round beach towels with the tassels that come out on the end, that would look so cool up here. You do a stripy number or something like that. Anyway, you do you.

So coming forward, we’re getting another good look at this Flexiteek which has just been done so well. You know I’m used to Flexiteek; we’ve all seen Flexiteek before on decks like this, but it’s just the capping rails and the thick areas like this that they’ve done. Look at this! It looks like timber but it’s not! It’s great for Australia, I love it!

“Look at this! It looks like timber but it’s not! It’s great for Australia, I love it!”

So dual bow roller, we have the anchor on the starboard side, the stainless steel anchor to Garminchain after the swivel, and then you can just put your mooring line to this cleat.

Can you see that just there? Big chunky, one big awesome piece of stainless. So I pointed out the little door down below the cabin; that’s how you access the anchor locker, not from here. So that’s how it’s done. It’s on a gas strut, all really well done.

SUMMARY

So I think that covers everything, guys. So who is this boat right for? It’s many people, is my thought process on this. It’s somebody who definitely has come out of a sailing lifestyle will appreciate this.

If you’re conscious of the amount of fuel you burn for whatever reason, this is going to be lower on the fuel consumption side of things compared to many boats that you see on my channel. So if that’s important to you, it’s just going to be one of those things that you can achieve in a boat like this.

“This is lower on the fuel consumption side of things compared to many boats that you see on my channel.”

And you can get some pretty decent range. If you slow this boat down to sailing yacht speeds, you get over a thousand nautical miles with these 1100-litre tanks and even with the standard tanks, which is like half of that 600 litres, you could still get a pretty decent range at a sailing yacht speed. Obviously, we can do over 30 knots on this if we choose.

Who’s it not going to suit? Well, somebody doesn’t like this style, simple as that. If this is not your style, if you’re more modern and racy, go and buy an Azimut or whatever modern European style that suits you.

It’s pretty clear that this is aiming at that demographic of person who loves a classic timeless boat which is never going to go out of fashion, and I think the fact that we have achieved these Australian options. You know, having the fake teak, having the flow through at the back there which really works for our lifestyle, I reckon makes this boat epic for anyone in Australia or New Zealand for that matter too.

So we’re going for a drive. If you really want to come along, click on the link coming up on the screen right now. You’re invited, you are more than welcome, and I want to prove to you how well this thing goes through waves because we do have waves out there today, so you’re going to see what it’s all about and see whether this is a style of boat that suits your boat life.
