The DeFever 43 is a heavily built, full displacement offshore cruising yacht whose flush deck design is unique in the world of midsize trawlers. Where the majority of double cabin trawlers are trunk cabin or sundeck designs, the DeFever 43 is a flush deck trawler with the aft deck and side decks on a single level. The result is a more versatile boat with a low-profile appearance—a really good looking small yacht in the DeFever tradition. The two stateroom floorplan is arranged with the U-shaped galley aft, rather than forward—a signature DeFever layout since he liked to keep the galley accessible to the outdoors. Visibility from the lower helm is very good, and sliding port and starboard teak doors provide quick access to the weather decks. The master stateroom and forward guest stateroom are separated by a large engine room with near standing headroom. Both staterooms have private heads. Typical of Taiwan imports of this era, solid teak cabinets and beautiful teak parquet floors are found throughout the interior. The simulated hull lapstrakes are a nice touch. With tons of exterior teak brightwork, the DeFever 43 is not a low-maintenance boat. Twin 120hp Lehman diesels cruise at 7–8 knots
