Defever Yachts For Sale

The models described in the following pages represent a cross section of late model DeFever designs. DeFevers have been manufactured by several U.S. and Asian manufacturers over the years, some better than others. Among the better-known builders, the CTF yard in Taiwan was well known for its comprehensive series of DeFever models from 40 to 72 feet in length. DeFever designs are perhaps best characterized as sturdy long-range cruisers with a distinctive trawler (or pilothouse) profile, practical accommodations, and seakindly hulls. While the models previewed in these pages are of fiberglass construction,many older DeFevers, including the popular Alaskan series from Grand Banks, were built of wood. Clean, used DeFevers are nearly always in demand, and their resale values have held up surprisingly well over the years.
