Make of the Month
DeFever
With a sturdy build and recognizable trawler profile, DeFevers are reliable power yachts well-suited for long-range cruising. According to DeFever Cruisers, Arthur DeFever began designing a
series of long-range cruising powerboats in the early 1960s, when long-range cruising was still almost always done in sailboats. With wood construction, many of these early boats were built in Santa Barbara. As of 2019, more than 3,300 DeFever hulls had been built, with new models made of fiberglass and built by various U.S. and Asian manufacturers over the years.
