Interior remodeled in 2010 with granite countertops in master stateroom and bathroom, and marble in shower.

Fuel Consumption

What kind of fuel burn/range do yu have with that single engine? I am looking for the largest most economical boat I can get.

I get about 1.5 GPH at 1800 RPM cruise speed (7 knots). Range at this speed and with 10% fuel in reserve is about 1680 NM.

The 5.5 kW generator burns about 1/2 GPH. Range with the generator running and 10% fuel in reserve is about 1260 NM.

The boat has freezer boxes to keep food cold for extended trips, so there is really no need to run the generator while underway unless AC/Heat in the cabin is desired. The boat has an invertor to generate AC power for small appliances if desired.

Now this DF is the DF I really like. I think it actually is close to being a full disp boat/hull. Let's see a pic of her aft end below the WL. Even if not it's the nicest DF I've ever seen. And Isuzu is my first engine choice.

Looks like the YW listing's been updated since I looked at your thread a few days ago... (they spelled Biloxi right) and more pics. Nice looking boat.

This is my first post, but I've been hanging out and reading threads for several months here. Great stuff. Your Defever looks real nice and if the time frame was a little different, I would come down to see it. If still available in the coming months once my finances are in order, we may get a chance to talk after-all. Great looking Defever, I to am interested in seeing the hull. I believe it's near full displacement.

Thanks for the comments. Current asking price is only 59K!

Below are a few additional pictures of the hull taken during the last haul out. The hull does have flatter sections aft, but hull speed is achieved easily at 1500 RPM. Easy on the engine & very low fuel consumption, so also easy on the wallet.

Trawler is still for sale. Under the right circumstances I would be able to assist with relocating the boat to Florida or Atlantic SouthEast coast.

Your boat is beautiful but not within my price range. I run a boat leasing company in Chicago and am looking for boats that are within $20,000 to $30,000 dollars in price range. Let me know if you are interested otherwise good luck.

Hello,
Not to sound like a wise A#$ or anything but seriously. A stupid question from a newbee.
What would it be like to operate your boat singlehanded?

Thanks,
Walter
