Here is your Long Range Cruiser!

The 44" DeFever Long Range Cruiser is a heavily built, serious offshore passagemaker, and with the 900 gallon fuel capacity, she is a capable long-range trawler/motoryacht. Dependable 210hp Caterpillar diesels, Niad Stabilizers, three zone air conditioning systems, full electronics compliment, two Generators and a dinghy davit all combine to offer everything you need for extended times aboard. Rich teak paneling and cabinetry in a most comfortable double cabin (queen aft) layout and a full-beam engine room all contribute to a most relaxing lifestyle and ease of maintenance duties. A very big 44 footer! The DeFever 44 is the most popular Defever production design ever. This is flush deck design with single-level walkaround decks. She is a heavy boat for her design with a hard chined displacement hull. This provides for a comfortable ride regardless of weather. This is a serious blue water cruiser!

Vessel Specifications

This is a unique 44' DeFever Long Range Cruiser, with layout different than most others. She does offer a similar full beam master stateroom aft and a guest stateroom forward, but her salon door is port aft instead of starboard aft, the galley is starboard aft, the guest head includes an enclosed shower, there is a laundry room and she is powered by naturally aspirated Caterpillar 3208 210 HP main engines, just to name a few of the many differences. She is Niad stabilized and offers two generators, custom teak and stainless steel sundeck to swim platform stairs, custom, folding swim platform, deeper keel for more prop protection, and three different engine room access points.
