Duke was built in 1947 by the Adolph Cummings Boat Company on Ruston Way in Tacoma, Washington. Built to troll fish, she had two sister ships, Solveig, and Ample II. She trolled in Alaska until the mid-1950s when she moved to Eureka, California, working troll, crab, and longline. While there, she made a brief appearance in the film “Jennifer 8” in 1992 and made her way back to Washington soon after.

Bought by a Port Townsend couple in the mid-1990s, she was converted to a cruising vessel and visited the San Juans and British Columbia often. Bought in 2o15 by her present owner, Duke offers adventure cruises in the San Juan Islands and British Columbia.
