This marvellous 53 foot Trawler Style luxury DeFever, is a perfect liveaboard or cruising vessel. Featuring two large staterooms and a double V berth, all with their own onsuites and seperate showers.
Arthur DeFever design several "Performance Offshore Cruiser" models. Where most previous DeFever yachts were built on low speed displacement hulls, the 53 rides on a semi-displacement hull capable of cruising speeds in the 12 to 15 knot range. The galley-up teak interior of the DeFever 53 is arranged with the salon, pilothouse, and aft deck all on a single level. A breakfast bar separates the U-shaped galley from the salon and a staircase opposite the salon settee offers private access to the 53's full-beam owner's stateroom with its walkaround queen bed and ensuite head. In the pilothouse, hinged deck doors access both port and starboard side decks, and a 9-foot settee doubles as a watch berth. In this layout, the VIP guest stateroom (with private ensuite head) is amidships. The second guest stateroom with V-berths and private access to the day head is forward. The engine room has standing headroom. Cat 375hp diesels cruise at 12 knots. A total of 68 were built by Sen Koh Shipbuilding in Taiwan.
'Home Free' is in excellent condition.
