Given that all Dusky boats are custom tailored to the original owners specifications each boat will vary. Please visit N.A.D.A to determine the current market value of your boat.
Each Dusky that leaves the factory is custom built to the original owner's specifications. As such, each Dusky is unique. Therefore, no owner's manuals are available. The original owner is supplied with all of the documentation for onboard electronics at the time of delivery. When purchasing a pre-owned Dusky, request the manuals from the seller. If they are not available, check the manufacturers website as they are usually available to download.
Unfortunately, not much. We can confirm that it is indeed a Dusky as well as the year and length, if we are provided with the hull number. We have no way to track each boat once it leaves the factory and as such we will be unable to provide a history or market value of pre-owned boats. We strongly suggest that you obtain a survey when purchasing a pre-owned vessel.
