Vessels of this caliber are definitely hard to come by. Detailed maintenance records, along with a full operational manual are available. Inquire today !


This is as good a layout as seen in any 44 foot yacht accounting for why this is the most popular DeFever model ever built. The feeling is one of spaciousness and brightness with excellent visibility. The teak joinery is excellent with a definite “shippyness”. The boat feels sturdy and appropriately labeled as offshore capable. Despite the spaciousness there are excellent hand holds to help move about in a seaway.

The galley and salon area would be hard to improve on with the person in the galley having excellent outward visibility and connection to the entertaining area. Large double sinks, a large fridge and freezer, microwave, trash compactor and large Corian counter spaces make the galley a pleasure to work in. Galley ventilation is also excellent with large sliding windows that allow access to a collapsible serving table for the aft deck.

The inside steering station has a dedicated helmsman chair with forward side sliding doors giving the helmsman quick access to the side decks. The rearward visibility is good. The chart table and chart storage is large and the instruments are well at hand.

The forward queen size V berth is located in a large separate cabin with a separate head sink and shower and plenty of privacy. The engine room is entered through a water tight door in this forward cabin with a viewing window in the door.

The spotless engine room is arguable the bests in any boat of this size with near standing headroom and this particularly DeFever is the best of the best with everything highly visible due to the excellent lighting and the custom layout of systems.

The aft stateroom is very large with an island queen berth, large storage lockers and drawers and a large adjacent head and counter sink with separate shower stall. There is a separate enclosed laundry room attached to the aft stateroom with separate full size Bosch washer and dryer and cabinets for cleaning supplies. This newer DeFever has large polished stainless opening ports in the aft bulkhead adding to the brightness and visibility. Curtains can cover every port. Beneath the stairs to the aft cabin is a built-in teak wine storage area and storage area for the vacuum.

Leaving the inside cabin aft one comes out onto a large aft deck with plenty of space for tables and chairs and the barbecue. There is a bar sink and cabinet and fold-down serving table adjacent to the aft galley window. This deck has a solid beamed deck head or roof allowing escape from the sun or rain but still allowing access to the outdoors for entertaining, barbecuing and boat watching at anchor. Leaving this deck there are a few gentle stairs to a very large upper sun deck containing a large lounge area with bench seats and a fixed table. There is an adjacent upper steering station with helmsman’s seat and side helm bench seats. The area is covered with a bimini but can be fully enclosed and has access to the excellent hot water heating system. Aft of the lounge area is the boat deck with custom stainless davit system, RIB dinghy and life raft with plenty of additional room for kayaks, bicycles or scooters.

This DeFever has eliminated the teak decks and eliminated much of the exterior teak. For example the hand rails are now polished stainless steel. This makes maintenance much easier.
