  • Motor Yacht
  • Galesville, MD, US

Yacht price :



Price drop of $15,000 with new asking price of only $169,900.  Owners want to sell their DeFever POC this year. Price reduction provides budget for upgrading electronics, servicing the NIAD's, and some cosmetics.  If you are looking for a great value in a long-range cruising yacht, "Intuition" should be on your "must see list".  She may be the best liveaboard or long-distance cruiser in her price range. The 1990 DeFever Performance Offshore Cruiser (POC) 57 "Intuition" has a wide body of 16.5 feet, and is powered to plane at 14 knots.  The engine room is walk-in with a workbench, and has two large Onan gensets.  She has twin 485 h.p. GM 671TB diesels that can provide the power to click off nautical miles.  She is stabilized, and also has a bow thruster.   The DeFever 57 POC is a perfect liveaboard with three staterooms, each with en suite heads and showers.  The salon is very spacious, and has French doors to the aft, covered deck.  A sofa is to port, and two new ergonomic leather chairs and ottomans are to stbd.  A round teak dining table with a wing is in the forward salon.  The galley is between the pilothouse and salon, so no steps to maneuver.  The flybridge is accessed via stairs from the pilothouse or from a teak ladder from the aft deck. (currently blocked by the RIB).   Wide, covered side decks give protected access from stem to stern.  There is a curved settee aft of the upper bridge, and aft of that is a large deck with chairs and table for sunseekers.   A new hardtop covers the upper bridge and settee which has an icemaker, bar-b-que, and an entertainment area.  A RIB with 50 h.p.Yamaha OB is on the upper aft deck with an electric davit system.

"Intuition" can be handled by a couple, or alternatively by a captain.  The third stateroom and private head in the forward stateroom is ideal for a captain as it is at opposite end of the vessel from the owners' stateroom.    And the VIP guest stateroom is perfect for visitors who have their own private head/shower and dressing space. 

This vessel has been shed kept for the past 16 years. So she has been generally out of sun and weather.  There is the possibility that the covered 60' slip could convey to the new owners.  

The teak & holly sole in the spacious salon is in very good condition, as it is covered with a large area rug.  This DeFever 57 POC is aggressively priced as the owners cruising plans have changed.   She needs some updating here and there, and the electronics are dated, but serviceable.  Call today for more details, or to set up a showing.
