Regarding the engines: In October 2018 both engines were removed and completely replaced with new long blocks. The heads and injector pumps were rebuilt, along with the heat exchangers. The injectors were tested and confirmed to meet "as new" specs. The starters had been rebuilt recently. A spare starter is included. One alternator was rebuilt -- the other tested fine. The port alternator is rated 80 amps and charges the starting bank. The starboard alternator is 100 amp and charges the house bank. Prior to the re-builds the engines had been serviced regularly so many of the external hoses were already newer so only those that needed to be were replaced; All water pumps were replaced. The reason for the rebuilds was that both engines were examined internally with a scope through the injector ports and the cylinder walls were found to be scored; Also on one engine there was a compression leak between two of the cylinders in the area of the head gasket. It was determined by the owner that since one engine had to be rebuilt he might as well rebuild both.

The steering is hydraulic.

Broker's Comments

This 1984 DeFever 60 Flush Deck Trawler is a "must see" for anyone in the market for a large, live-aboard capable vessel. By looking at it you would not guess that she is a thirty three year old boat! The boat has had many upgrades and meticulous maintenance. The current owner is a very experienced yacht owner and sailor and he has been obsessive with making sure the boat is in excellent condition and ready to cruise anywhere. From the newer hull paint job to the gleaming varnished teak and shining stainless steel, one is enticed to come aboard. Since 2008 her major systems have been systematically renewed, improved and modernized. Bow and stern thrusters were added to aid in docking. The favored Caterpillar 3208 naturally aspirated diesels are "brand new" remanufactured engines with 1 hour showing since install in October 2018. The surveyor's summary from 2015 states "A fine example of an Arthur DeFever designed flush deck motor yacht. Materials and craftsmanship appear very good to excellent. The vessel has been maintained to a very high standard showing signs of ongoing maintenance and upgrades..."

The surveyor's summary from 2018 states that the boat has been well maintained. Every issue identified on this current survey has been addressed and corrected.
