DeFever 46 Pilothouse
Designed for cruising comfort with a spacious interior and expansive living area on deck, the 46 Pilothouse is built to endure. Distinctive style and quality craftsmanship define this impressive yacht and ensure pride in ownership.
Elegant and welcoming best describe the owner stateroom forward. A raised island queen bed is fitted with teak cabinetry and vanity for plentiful storage. The guest stateroom to port is configured with a roomy settee that converts to single upper and lower berths, with space available for a washer/dryer combination and ample storage. To starboard is the guest head with separate shower stall.
Panoramic views and excellent visibility are the hallmark of the pilothouse. The helm station and overhead console will accept your choice of electronics and equipment, with drawers and chart storage incorporated. A raised settee and pilot berth are fitted on the aft bulkhead with steps leading to the boat deck or optional flybridge with second steering station.
The galley is well-appointed and equipped with refrigerator/freezer, three-burner range (gas or electric), stainless sink, and plenty of counter space, cabinet and drawer storage. Hand-rubbed teak cabinetry, paneling and cabin soles are featured throughout.
Access the engine room through the lazarette or watertight door in the guest cabin. Configured to permit easy maintenance for the twin 135HP diesels, and provide ample space for the workbench and additional equipment, the engine room also boasts generous head room. Additional storage for long range cruising is provided in the lazarette.
The 46 Pilothouse has a full-length keel to protect the heavy-duty underwater running gear and a sturdy hull of hand-laid fiberglass with gel coat finish. Quality hardware such as stainless ports with screens, chocks, cleats and handrails mounted on stainless steel stanchions are featured. Molded-in non-skid decks and FRP swim platform with boarding and swimming ladder promote safety on board this long-range cruising yacht.
