The DeFever 56 is a traditional raised pilothouse cruising yacht built in Suzhou, China. The high bow, Portuguese bridge, and classic lines are signature DeFever design elements, recognized worldwide and highly valued by experienced long range cruisers. Construction is solid fiberglass, and a full length keel protects the props and running gear. The solid teak cabinetry found throughout the interior of the DeFever 56 is accented by teak and holly flooring in the salon and pilothouse. Large windows provide plenty of natural lighting in the salon, and a wide 17-foot beam creates expansive living areas in the staterooms on the lower level. The amidships master stateroom features a walkaround king bed and walk-in wardrobe, and the forward VIP stateroom has an island queen bed and private head access. Both head compartments include separate stall showers. A third stateroom can be fitted with twin single berths of configured as an office area. Pilothouse visibility is excellent, and port/starboard deck doors provide easy deck access. Note the molded foredeck seating and standard flybridge hardtop. Twin 420hp Cat diesels will cruise the DeFever 56 at 89 knots.
