The Defever 34 Passagemaker is one of the relatively few trawlers built in the United States.

"Skye" is a traditional trawler- sedan style and she is built by Jensen Marine in Costa Mesa, CA. She is suitable for use in Southern California. Her proud owners have owned her since 1989 and they're still enjoy cruising her. It is rare to find a quality DeFever at an affordable price. 

“Skye” offers a comfortable berthing for four persons, an L-shape dinette, fully equipped galley, lower helm and a flybridge. She have most of her original equipment and instruments. She has a new Northern Generator installed in 2002, new propeller and a new water heater in 2010, her last bottom paint was in 2014, the teak rails are recoated twice a year, her engine and generator are serviced once a year. Her maintenance and repair records are available upon request.

The owners are motivated.  Call the Listing Broker for any questions and for viewing appointment today.  I look forward to hearing from you and hopefully to earning your business.
