Built in the CTF yard in Taiwan in 1981, this DeFever 60 is a beautiful, traditional design fit for serious offshore cruising. 

This is an extremely spacious trawler with a great layout she has everything you could look for in a long range cruising vessel. 

The salon and the galley are open to each other and give a very spacious and open feeling. The pilothouse area is well setup and has comfortable seating for the captain’s guests. 

A 4 stateroom design, with full beam master aft, two generous guest cabins forward, one with ensuite, as well as a bunk room and extra storage. The Engine room is a full walk-in with amble head room to get any job done with ease. Great walkaround decks and room for a 16ft tender on the boat deck. 

Powered with twin Cat 3306 Diesels that will cruise at 8.5 to 9 knots. 6000 litres of fuel at 28 litres per hour will give her about 2,000 miles of range.

The current owners have maintained and cared for this impressive passage maker since taking ownership over 4 years ago. The boat has withstood the test of time and has been put through her paces with an envious passage from the US to NZ. 

Owners are open to a Trade. Possibly a smaller boat plus funds and would look at house and land options also. 

Very well spec’d, she is ready to go. 


Frank Gordon Yacht Sales is pleased to assist you in the purchase of this vessel. This boat is centrally listed by Orakei Marine.
