Anyone thinking about purchasing a DeFever should join the DeFever Cruisers Forum at
For only $34.00 to join, you can undoubtedly find a number of DF40/41/all owners who can tell you everything you'd ever want to know about the specific design you're interested in, and the odds are you'll find someone who has had experience with the specific boat you're considering.
