Broker's Comments

This 1984 DeFever 60 Flush Deck Trawler is a "must see" for anyone who is in the market for a large, live-aboard capable vessel. By looking at it you would not guess that she is a thirty three year old boat! The current owner is a professional yacht interior designer and he has been meticulous in his care and upgrades to this fine yacht. From the newer hull paint job to the gleaming varnished teak and shining stainless steel one is enticed to come aboard. Since 2008 her major systems have been systematically renewed, improved and modernized. Bow and stern thrusters were added to aid in docking. The favored Caterpillar 3208 naturally-aspirated diesels have proven to be very reliable and economical to operate.

The surveyor's summary from 2015 states
"A fine example of an Arthur DeFever designed flush deck motor yacht. Materials and craftsmanship appear very good to excellent. The vessel has been maintained to a very high standard showing signs of ongoing maintenance and upgrades...."
