"Avanti" is a great liveaboard, very well cared for spacious, pedigreed, efficient trawler penned by the renowned Art DeFever. Art designs his boats for his native waters (San Diego) and the demanding Pacific Ocean. To say the DeFevers are robust sea boats is just the beginning of the story. I personally own and extensively cruise aboard our DeFever 48 and I can assure you these boats are safe, comfortable, roomy and efficient. She has been extensively refitted with granite counters, large flat screen TV and audio system and much more. She has ridiculously low hours on her highly regarded Izuzu industrial rated engine. Parts availibility for the Izuzu is very good as these engines are used in industrial equipment as well. At cruise this engine and hull design burns less then 1.5 gallons per hour. The hull has been epoxy barrier coated so blisters will never be a concern. The fuel tanks are stainless and not ithe iron tanks that are so problematic in this era of boats. The forward head space has been converted to a washer/dryer utility space and could easily be converted back to use as a second head if so desired. Please take a close look at Avanti and you will quickly see what an excellent value she represents.
For a qualified buyer, an east coast FL delivery if desired is included with the purchase of this ready to go trawler!
Are you in interested in selling your boat or are you ready to buy a boat?
I have been very fortunate to have spent much of the last 8 years cruising aboard our boat with my amazing family of five. Along with that cruising life came the knowledge developed from the personal restoration and reconfiguration of our boats. I am eager to share the knowledge gained in my hands on approach to boating and the passion I have for this incredible lifestyle! I am always looking for new quality listings to connect to new owners.
I work tirelessly for my clients in assisting them in locating, previewing and purchasing boats in addition to selling their boats. If I can assist you in your pursuit of “simply messing about in boats” I would be honored.
