1988 DeFever Long Range Trawler

Huntington Beach, California


"Trinity Rose" is a 1988 DeFever 44 Aft Cabin Trawler. She has been well cared for by her current owners. Ready to cruise. All service and maintenance records are available. She is a big 44-footer with a full-beam master stateroom, and excellent storage. Few trawler designs have enjoyed the enduring appeal of the Defever 44, as this is one of the most popular Defever productions design ever. A long range, heavy displacement hull provides safety and comfort in a seaway.  She's a heavy boat, and her displacement hull provides a particularly comfortable ride in a chop. Below decks, her two-stateroom teak interior is arranged with the galley aft and to port in the salon (most galley-up layouts have the galley forward). There are two deck access doors in the salon, and the visibility from the lower helm is very good. A great feature of the Defever 44 is her spacious engine room with it's easy access, and near-standing headroom. Power is provided by twin, 135-hp Ford Lehman diesel engines, which will cruise efficiently at 7 to 8-knots, with a cruising range of about 1200-miles. This classic blue-water cruiser has a vast array of equipment, and is ready to go - please give us a call for more details, or an appointment to view her.
