1988 | 47' 0" DEFEVER
Spacious and Comfortable Performance Trawler
This Defever Is In Great Condition!
Arthur Defever designed the 47' Performance Offshore Cruiser with a semi-displacement hull that allows her to reach speeds that most trawlers cannot attain. She can be cruised at a respectable 7-8 knots when fuel savings are essential or speed up to 15 knots when you have a schedule to keep.
Vera Kate is a galley up, three stateroom, three head layout. Her four level design would make a fantastic liveaboard, with plenty of storage and room for friends and family. Her massive sundeck and flybridge offer unparalleled outdoor living space.
She has been properly maintained and offers a tremendous value to those looking for a spacious liveaboard cruiser with a build quality synonymous with Defever Yachts.
