Exterior Equipment/Information

The aft deck and huge flybridge are beautiful examples of the premium outdoor living space which the DF 49 CPMY affords. The aft deck is easily accessed by built-in stairs from the cockpit. It is covered by the boat deck and offers an area large enough to accommodate a large table and chairs for outside dining and entertaining. It even has a pass-through window direct from the galley, and a built-in cabinet with sink. The DF 49 features full walk-around side decks. The flybridge, with its facing port and starboard daybeds (storage beneath), and additional seating which faces forward, is larger and more accommodating than most. It's truly a wonderful place from which to enjoy the view, the ride, a great book, or dinner with friends!

Brokers Notes

I had the opportunity to commission this DeFever 49 Cockpit Motor Yacht, hull #141 in 2002, for the original owners. In 2006, I was involved with selling the boat to the second owners. The second owners installed the bow thruster during their ownership. In 2015, I sold the boat to its current owners. "MARI JO" is currently hauled and blocked at my yard for whole boat compounding/waxing/detailing, soda blasting of the bottom, applying 4-coats epoxy barrier coat, and 2-coats bottom painting, all running gear cleaned/painted, zinc anodes replaced. "MARI JO" is scheduled for launching middle September.
