Supersize me!

We'll we have put a Defever 48 Tri-cabin under contract. These have always been one of my favorites in that you get the space of the aft cabin yet the decks are covered like our sedan, best of both worlds to me. They are very sea kindly boats with a low center of gravity and the flybridge helm well back in the comfortable motion area. The only thing I don't like is the twins although they are Lehman's which I know very well. My engine room headroom is going from 30" to 70", there is a God!! Pics are of various 48's. I'll let you know how the survey goes.

That's awesome Daddyo! Did you sell your marine trader or are you gonna use her as a dinghy to your new ride?

Seriously- congrats. That is great to hear!

No haven't sold the 36' yet but lots of activity. I'm excited and apprehensive as hell about the Defever. She is one hell of a lot of boat when your used to a 36' single.

We'll it's official we now have 84' of boat. Closed today on the Defever! The 84' is both our 36MT and the 48Defever and that doesn't include the two dinghies, a 11' hard shell Puffin rowing/power and a 12' Boston Whaler with a center mounted wheel.

It's now a fact... You can be happy for you and envious at the exact same moment! So... Congrats and good luck all at the same time. Enjoy the new (as-if!) and good luck selling the old.

Thanks Guys for all the great thoughts and words! Prettiest girl, wow! Now there's nothing left to do but thousands of hours of TLC and boat bucks! Yep as of now planning on cruising out of Deltaville but who knows, she's got the range to cross the pond.

Shew.....that is, indeed, a big jump. *Nothing you can't handle Daddyo. *Just remember when you pull away at the dock with a line left untied, it's liable to take the dock with it now. *That engine room is a dream of mine. *One day.

RE: Supersize me!

Is yours the Florida boat shown as "Sale Pending" on YW? Looks like you had a motivated seller there, looking at comp asking prices.
