DeFever trawlers are some of the most highly respected and most sought-after recreational trawlers ever produced. In the 60's and 70's, Arthur DeFever led the transition from sail to power in Pacific coast long-range cruising with designs for a series of full displacement cruising boats in the 38-54 foot length capable of long runs up and down the Pacific coast from Mexico to Alaska in comfort and safety. DeFever boats have a distinctive profile with swept sheer and high prow that never seems to look outdated. Traditional lines, sturdy construction and practical layouts made them ideal for extended cruising, and many of the early models still grace the waterways of the world today.

The demand for greater speed led to the POC (Performance Offshore Cruiser) line based on semi-displacement hulls. Twin engine DeFever POC designs of 47, 51, 53 and 57 feet that could cruise at 12-14 knots were introduced in the mid 80's and built in Taiwan by the Sen Koh yard.

The DeFever 47 POC was optionally available with a fully enclosed aft deck, often referred to as a "Florida Room" as it provided a large bright interior aft area. Fitted with wing doors, sliding doors aft and a wet bar refreshment station, it often becomes the main salon and primary entertainment area. The stepped-down main salon provides a dining and seating area with the galley positioned aft and the lower helm forward. Three staterooms and three heads provide private accommodation for the owner and guests. A full-beam aft stateroom with walk-around queen berth is very spacious and has large hanging lockers and ample drawer storage. It can also be opened to the third stateroom, if desired, to provide a study with desk. The en-suite head has a unique tub and shower compartment that can be shared with the aft guest head. The interior is finished throughout with beautifully crafted teak woodwork with traditional teak and holly flooring in the main salon. A curved teak staircase off the salon leads to the forward guest stateroom, which also has a private en-suite head with shower. A second staircase in the Florida Room leads to a large bridge with full canvas enclosure, plenty of passenger seating and a centre-line helm.

This DeFever 47 is a two-owner freshwater boat with a 2021 survey indicating stringers, bulkheads and frames are sound, with moisture levels that are within acceptable ranges for a boat of this age. While basic maintenance work is recommended to restore the gel coat finish and the exterior bright work, overall, the vessel was "found to remain in a very solid and sound condition." She was built in Taiwan and landed in Florida and her salt water exposure has been limited to the trip north to the Great Lakes where her current owner of 30-years has kept her in heated storage through winter layups.

Whether you are searching for a very comfortable live-aboard or planning serious extended cruising, you really can't go wrong with a DeFever. We suspect that many a dedicated sailor has come to the dark side and found peace and comfort at the helm of a DeFever POC, most likely while making 12 knots directly into a strong headwind.
