1989 DeFever Offshore Cruiser

Anacortes, United States


The DeFever 40 is a very untraditional double-cabin trawler with a flat sheer line - something seldom seen in a trawler-style design, and a distinctive low-profile appearance. She was built by CTF in Taiwan on a solid fiberglass hull with hard aft chines and a deep keel for prop protection. Her galley-up floor plan includes a large aft cabin and a somewhat compact main salon. While many boats in this size range have galley-up layouts, few have a galley aft of the salon like the DeFever 40 does. A lower helm was standard and there are port and starboard deck doors in the salon. 


Her Highlights Include:

  • Espar Diesel Furnace
  • 11' AB Center Console RIB w/20hp Honda Four-Stroke Outboard
  • Seawise Hydraulic Davit System
  • 2005 Northern Lights 5.5KW Genset in soundshield
  • Furuno NavNet GPS, Radar, Plotter
  • Com Nav Autopilot (upper, and lower)
  • Twin Perkins 200hp Diesel Engines
