DUO 1973 … Because You Know A Little More About Boating
1f you're considering Duo for '73, chances are you've owned a boat before. Most people who buy Duo have. They know what to look for in a boat … and they're ready to step up to Duo.
I don't mean you have to be a marine engineer or boat designer -- and you certainly don't have to be a television sportscaster -- to appreciate fine boating.
The kind of boating you get with Duo. Nor do I pretend to be an expert myself … but I've been around boats and boating long enough to know what's important in pleasure boats. That's why my choice is Duo.
The first thing I look for is performance; what are the handling characteristics? Experienced boaters can tell quickly that Duo performance is superior.
The unique and proven Tri Vee hull gives a real ride -- soft and easy. Just hit the throttle and Duo is up and out of the water fast, planing almost instantly, taking the chop right in stride and keeping you level and dry.
Every experienced boater knows that what's inside a boat is as important as anything else, and Duo doesn't skimp on interiors. With Duo, extras are standard … and the workmanship and materials are "first cabin" throughout.
For my family, plenty of storage is a must, and Duo has it. Not only has it, but has it conveniently located so you don't have to struggle to get what you need.
There's extra comfort with Duo, too. Big cushiony gunwale and bow rider padding, fold-down sunbather seats pioneered in the industry by Duo, and everything in the right place so you have plenty of room to move about.
