About DeFever Cruisers
Iconic Boats Throughout the World
Fishing boats have always been a part of coastal living and nothing is more iconic than the large, slow, trawlers that dot each and every coast. These boats are most notable for being the large fishing vessels that bring in the catch each and every day. The capabilities of these boats are perfect for fishing as they are not fast and are capable of traveling deep into the ocean and staying out for days or even weeks depending on the fuel capacity. DeFever historically one of the most known producers of these types of vessels.Read More
The history of the DeFever company is quite spectacular. The beginnings of the company may have called for the production of fishing trawlers, but these boats soon began to be sought after for their size and remarkable capabilities. It was the 1960s when Arthur DeFver was approached with a new yacht idea. Instead of designing a new yacht from the ground up, the customer wanted a retrofitted cruiser for the use as a yacht. That may have been the first cruiser, but these boats have quickly become one of the most sought-after vessels on the market for their ability to withstand the rigors of the seas all while providing the boater with a true home away from home.
Pros and Cons
The DeFever cruisers are excellent choices for anyone looking to get into traveling by sea, but is not looking for the standard yacht appearance. There are many positive to the DeFever brand including the fact that it has been producing boats for many years. That means that the designs and capabilities have been tested time and time again which cannot always be said of the newer boat companies. The only drawback to the DeFever cruiser is not even a drawback to some. These yachts are not fast like the super and sport yachts on the market today. These vessels are perfect for those looking to take things slower in their yachting experience.
The boats within the DeFever brand are made to order for each individual customer. The different types are difficult to pin down as they are so specific in their customer they are made for. They are not the largest yachts on the market as they are only at the largest 50’, but the fact that these boats are so well-appointed means that the overall length truly does not make a difference. Each of the DeFever cruisers are powered by Lehman Diesels and are therefore quite fuel efficient. They maintain plenty of room with a number of bedrooms depending on the needs of the individual customer as well as multiple head compartments for maximum comfort.
Where to Go
The nature of the DeFever cruiser maintains the same and even better notion of long-term enjoyment. You are likely to see these vessels throughout the world and on every coast line as they have become quite popular. There are some in the world that maintain that these vessels are outdated simply due to the fact that they are slower than the faster yachts on the market today, but in all reality, they remain beautifully appointed and very capable of all types of travel. Whether you are looking to simply cruise up the coast for a little rest and relaxation or even head out to the deep sea for some truly quiet time, you can find it with any of the DeFever cruisers. The bonus of these boats is that some of the smaller rivers and canals can support the length and the weight of the vessels making it possible to have river cruises as well. That cannot be said of the larger yacht on the market.
