This model of the DeFever 49 Raised Pilothouse was built by CTF in the POCTA yard, Taiwan. She is a full displacement hull, has soft aft chines and is stabilized with Trac Stabilizers providing very comfortable cruising. The fly bridge is positioned aft of the pilothouse giving the boat a lower profile while maintaining the classic beauty and lines of Art DeFevers’ designs.
The full walk-around and fully enclosed cockpit, spacious salon and galley layout, raised pilothouse and fully enclosed fly bridge with spacious deck and her stateroom layout, make it ideal for a cruising (or liveaboard) couple who enjoy entertaining with occasional overnight guests.
