What You'll Get


Contrary to popular belief, boats are actually much safer than cars, which inexplicably sink every time you drive them on water. Take a proper water road ride with today’s Groupon to Duffy Electric Boats of Lake Norman, located on North Harbor Place in Davidson. Choose between the following options:

  • For $62, you get a three-hour weekday boat rental (a $158 value).
  • For $83, you get a three-hour weekend boat rental (a $169 value).<p>

Duffy Electric Boats’ fleet of vessels beckons wayfarers with the promise of languid cruises across the halcyon waters of Lake Norman. Claim the reins of a 21-foot Avalon, which seats 10–12 people and provides enclosed protection from squally rains, blustery winds, and days when the air is replaced with cotton candy. No boating license is required; after a brief training session, clients can pilot these electrified relaxation rafts, which can reach speeds of up to 6 knots (about 476 mph).

Each boat comes equipped with iPod hookups for midcruising jam sessions and a heating system that guards against unexpected coolness. Snacks and drinks are allowed on board, and travelers are encouraged to pack midtrip noshes. In the event that pilots decide to self-mutiny and join their guests’ revelries, captains are available upon request.

About Duffy Electric Boats of Lake Norman


After owning Duffy electric boats in Newport Beach, California, where the company has its headquarters, the Textor family decided to introduce the fun-filled and stress-free world of electric boating to Lake Norman in 2010. Thanks to the electric motor and patented Power Rudder propulsion device, Duffy boats carry passengers over water with a remarkable speed and maneuverability and cost as little as $1 per day to maintain. Since 1970, Duffy shipwrights have constructed each vessel exactly to the client's specifications, outfitting crafts with Duff-Eze cabin enclosures that allow captains to pilot their ship in any climate and ensure that boats never have to be winterized, covered, or sent to Florida because of cold weather.

Customers can rent out 21-foot Avalon models that carry 10–12 passengers for brief lakefront voyages, dancing to tunes from the onboard mp3 and CD hookups, warming themselves with the heater on chilly nights, and sunbathing on the bow. Specialty cruises entertain guests with floating wine tastings, catered feasts from Lake Norman cottage, and movie nights, and a seasonal schedule of special events dazzles families with upcoming attractions such as electric-boat sleigh rides.
