Seldom has a yacht been designed with almost as much living area on the outside as inside . Both the forward and aft decks are generously proportioned, and the aft deck can even become an extension of the salon when enclosed with curtains for protection from the elements.

On the DeFever 46 Pilothouse you will find molded-in non-skid decks for safety underfoot, along with stainless steel handrails mounted on stainless steel stanchions, FRP swim platform with boarding and swimming ladder, and quality stainless hardware such as chocks, cleats and portlights with screens. The hand-laid fiberglass hull, with gelcoat finish, has a full-length keel to protect the massive underwater running gear.

In all, the DeFever 46 is built to endure. It is another quality offshore cruiser in the DeFever line, where the name says it all.
