Description

Arthur DeFever's 44 Offshore, Great Loop capable, Cruiser is a popular modern classic for cruising and for living aboard. The design remains popular because she is comfortable, safe, functional and attractive. She's a full displacement, heavily built trawler on a solid fiberglass hull. Under water running gear is protected by a deep keel and stout struts. Outside spaces include a large covered aft deck. The fly-bridge is spacious with commanding views for navigation or docking. The dinghy is stored aft of the fly-bridge.

Below decks, the teak interior is arranged with the galley mid-ship to port and on the same level as the main saloon living and entertainment space. Sleeping accommodations are in two cabins. The master stateroom is aft and features a walk-around Sleep Number queen and ensuite head with a stall shower. The forward guest quarters provide two bunks in a vee-berth configuration. One highlight of this DeFever 44 is a large, well lit, walk-in engine room. Sea Grace spent her time in fresh water from May 2015 to August 2019 and was stored at Winter Harbor's indoor heated facility for the winters from 2015-16, 2017-18 and 2018-19.

MAIN DESCRIPTION

Arthur DeFever's 44 Offshore, Great Loop capable, Cruiser is a popular modern classic for cruising and for living aboard. The design remains popular because she is comfortable, safe, functional and attractive. She's a full displacement, heavily built trawler on a solid fiberglass hull. Under water running gear is protected by a deep keel and stout struts. Outside spaces include a large covered aft deck. The fly-bridge is spacious with commanding views for navigation or docking. The dinghy is stored aft of the fly-bridge.
Below decks, the teak interior is arranged with the galley mid-ship to port and on the same level as the main saloon living and entertainment space. Sleeping accommodations are in two cabins. The master stateroom is aft and features a walk-around Sleep Number queen and ensuite head with a stall shower. The forward guest quarters provide two bunks in a vee-berth configuration. One highlight of this DeFever 44 is a large, well lit, walk-in engine room. Sea Grace spent her time in fresh water from May 2015 to August 2019 and was stored at Winter Harbor's indoor heated facility for the winters from 2015-16, 2017-18 and 2018-19.

DEFEVER 44 WALKTHROUGH

Sea Grace is boarded through sundeck level gates to port and starboard or from the swim platform. The sundeck offers a large, covered entertainment area. Up a few steps from the sundeck is the flybridge with Bimini, partial enclosure, fully equipped helm and plenty of seating.

The main cabin can be accessed from the sundeck or the port and starboard sliding doors from the walk-around decks. The main cabin features the lower helm station and L-shaped seating area to port with dining table. Storage space can be found in the seating area extending under the side decks. Starboard is more storage as well as two refrigerators with freezer compartments and an ice maker. Aft of the salon seating area is the U-shaped galley, fully equipped with electric stove and oven, double stainless steel sink and extensive storage. A microwave oven is just a few steps down in the aft master stateroom closet, as is the washer/dryer. The full beam aft master stateroom boasts an island queen with Sleep Number dual control mattress, extensive storage in drawers and lockers and a desk. The ensuite head offers a Tecma freshwater electric toilet, sink mounted in a vanity with storage, and a stall shower. 
Moving forward and down a few steps from the main cabin is the guest stateroom with V-berth, storage drawers and locker. The adjacent head is equipped with a Tecma freshwater electric toilet, sink in vanity with storage above and below and a hand shower with curtain enclosure.
The stand-up engine room is accessed through a door near the guest stateroom. The large engine room enables convenient maintenance.
