Vessel Walkthrough

The 41 Defever can sleep six comfortably in two seprate staterooms and by utlizing the convertible settee. Forward in the bow you have a V-berth stateroom that sleeps two, includes a enclosed head/shower and plenty of storage. Moving up and aft you have the large salon and galley where there is an L-shaped settee and table in the salon is opposite the lower helm station on the starboard side. Two sliding side doors are located aft of the lower helm station and at the rear of the salon on the portside. The bright, U-shaped galley is located in the salon aft starboard corner. Moving aft toward the back of the boat you have the commodious  aft cabin that includes a large queen bed, a full size head with shower/tub and direct access to the aft deck via doors and hatch. As with all Defevers, the teak woodwork and joinery is second to none.
