DISTRACTION is a popular 1999 DeFever 44+5 Trawler with a wonderful custom hardtop that is most practical. She has only 1989 hours on her Sabre Perkins M215C diesels and many recent updates over the years. A very seaworthy boat with Naiad Stabilizers, she is quite comfortable far offshore. Combining the very popular DeFever 44 with a 5' cockpit for ease of boarding, handling lines or boarding your dinghy, DISTRACTION is a perfect cruising trawler.

DISTRACTION is from Australia and came to the United States on board Dockwise Yacht Transport. The owners have cruised the states and enjoyed their time, and have decided to sell her after owning her practically since new. She has just been hauled and professionally polished and has fresh bottom paint. A very functional layout she is so much more desirable than a DeFever 44 due to her cockpit, which makes boarding a breeze. Her engines are Commercially Rated and higher horsepower than we normally see in the U.S. A lovely boat with an incredible flybridge enhanced by her custom hardtop. She is completely detailed, spotless, and ready to go today. Easy to see in our fresh water showrooms at Atlantic Yacht Basin on the Intracoastal Waterway just 12 miles south of Norfolk, VA.
DO NOT HESITATE...FOR SHE WILL BE GONE!
