1972 DeFever 54

Just got off the phone with a friend of mine. He dejectedly told me they're selling Lilliwaup, their wood DeFever 54. Family and health issues forces sale, only 3 years into their 10-year plan to restore her and cruise/liveaboard.

She has some exterior issues, though none below the waterline. He's done A LOT of upgrades interior wise in addition to continuing work on the outside.

Right now asking $99,000. And I can vouch that the boat is worth well more than that (she's just a few slips down from us). He'll ask more after he replaces some planks and finishes a few other things later this summer. I asked if he wanted me to take a few pics and post here. He said yes, but to SERIOUS buyers only. I said everyone on TF is serious... Mike is his name, and with an area code of 360 his prefix is 821 followed by 8377. Boat is moored in Port Ludlow, WA.

Tried posting multiple pics, but it only keeps one at a time. Guess I'll post other pics in separate posts.

What a great looking boat,I thought she was an American Marine Alaskan for a second.
I wonder which yard built her ?
She sure has great lines,I hope someone spends the time etc to make her shine again,it will be well worth it.
Art Defever always has a good eye for a seaworthy boat.
I've owned a Defever 43 Offshore which we really enjoyed.
Tried to by a 60 Offshore ,but missed it.Another good looking boat.
Some lucky person will love this boat.
