The guest stateroom is forward with its own head and shower, and there is a third stateroom/office just forward of the master stateroom. The master stateroom offers a queen size berth, the forward guest stateroom offers v-berths and the third stateroom offers over/under berths. Entering the upper salon from the open aft deck through the sliding aft doors, you will find seating on each side, a cocktail table, wide, teak steps forward to the flybridge and side deck doors on each side. Step down a few stairs to the lower salon and you will find the galley to port, cabinetry to starboard and the lower helm forward. The companionway to the master stateroom and second guest stateroom is aft and then there is a stairwell forward to the other guest stateroom. The engine room is accessed through a door forward.
Master Stateroom

   Upper Salon The enclosed aft deck on the 47' Defever really becomes the main living and entertainment area. The huge flybridge on Dream Fever, with Stratoglass and Eisenglass opening enclosure, offers a great area for better weather days and the enclosed upper salon offers a great area for all other times. There are teak doors with windows on each side forward to the side decks, sliding teak aft doors and wide, teak steps up to the flybridge.  Lower Salon The 47' Defever offers two large salons, lower and upper. Dream Fever's owners use the lower salon for dining, but like almost all other 47' Defever owners, they spend most of their time in the upper salon and flybridge. The lower salon offers cabinetry to starboard, lower helm forward, galley aft and to port and a dining or seating area forward of the galley. There are large side windows and a forward windshield for plenty of natural light.  New chairs in 2012 and a 32 inch led tv in the lower salon. The stereo system was replaced with poly Planner MRD80I with remote unit and 12 speakers through out the boat. 
Dream Fever's galley has been updated with granite countertops and a new Force 10 electric stove and 3-burner ceramic cook top. There is a Kenmore Microwave oven, Sub-Zero under counter refrigerator and freezer, new Magic Chef under counter refrigerator and a large stainless steel sink. There is plenty of storage cabinetry and the galley is open to the lower salon. Both the galley and lower salon offer very large side windows for loads of natural light. There is a dining table in the lower salon, but most meals are casual dining on the flybridge or in the upper salon.
The 47' Defever flybridge is huge and comfortable, with great visibility. Dream Fever's flybridge offers Stratoglass enclosure forward and on the sides and Eisenglass enclosure aft and a Bimini top, all in very good condition. There is a helm seat with bench seats on each side forward. There are also bench seats along both sides and aft and a coffee table. This is the favorite area onboard all the 47' Defevers!
