Manufacturer Info



Arthur DeFever started his career in the 1960s by designing long-range fishing vessels in wood and steel. In the days when long distance voyaging was strictly within the realm of sailboats, DeFever was challenged to draw a reliable seaworthy passagemaking motoryacht that could go the distance. He designed several in the 38 to 54 foot range and expanded his offering the in 1970s and 80s. Today, there are fuel-efficient models from 45 to 68 feet with a few megayachts attributed to the DeFever name as well. These serious ocean-going motoyachts are known for sturdy construction, practical interiors, long range cruising capabilities and good owners’ association. Two dealers, one on the East coast and one on the West, still offer various designs in flush deck and cockpit versions.
