What are y'alls thoughts on Jefferson Boats? I've found a 1987, 46 ft Sundeck online and wondering if it's worth making the drive to look at. It has twin Cat 3208s, which sounds like they're good mains. I don't care about cosmetics, but are there any issues I should be aware of?

Jefferson 46' Sundeck M/Y

We purchased this boat in 2013 and have lived aboard to date. We have put about 50K in upgrades.
Have a hull and Engine survey. Cat's like their valves ajusted every 1,000 hours. Remember these boats, as others, have their own plumbing, water, and electric "company"
There is a 1988 in St. Augustine that have upgrades. I know the owners. Good luck!

Jefferson Sundeck vs DeFever POC. Same size and both need a little love, what would yall go after? Both are SD so I assume roll some and I'm looking to cruise the Chesapeake Bay and ICW, very little time in exposed waters. I know they're different boats with different price ranges, I'm just wondering if the splurge for the DeFever is worth it.

Sometimes the quality brand name like de fever will help with resale later and hold value better. But sometime spending less is less stressful.....

I'm delivering an '87 DeFever 44' at the moment and am very impressed with quality. Can't say I have ever felt the same way about a similar age Jefferson.

You pays your money and you takes your chances.
