1988 DeFever 44

LONG BEACH, California


PRICE JUST REDUCED :  was  $209000   ....  is  .... $201,000 . It's not often a 10 comes by but here it is..... 

Defever built 100 of these most popular designed vessels for the cruising minded.  A heavily built solid fiberglass hull, full length keel, flared bow, deep forefoot and full displacement hull ensure a dry and comfortable ride in offshore conditions, and a 1,500 mile-plus range makes her eminently well suited for serious cruising. The design is unusual for a trawler in that it's a flush deck with walk-around decks. It also offers a walk-in engine room.  This beautiful vessel has 2 state rooms & 2 heads both (electric flush).  Master state room has a walk around with a select comfort mattress for more comfort.

The boat was built at a yard specifically constructed for building the DeFevers so there are none of the quality issues sometimes associated with Taiwanese-built yachts.
