Owner's Comments of the DeFever 47

I have owned my DeFever 47' since 2017 and enjoyed cruising the south coast from my base in Gosport. She has been a joy to own and so comfortable for passage making or just sitting on my mooring and entertaining family and friends. I am now spending considerably more time with my yacht based in Liverpool and it's time to move on and let someone else enjoy this lovely motor yacht.
