She has 2 staterooms with 2 heads, and space provided for a full size, stackable washer and dryer -- which come included! Her engine room is massive and accessible through the master stateroom with 5'6" headroom. This is also where you will find a pair of 2016 John Deere 6068AFM85 diesel engines with 300 HP! 

The bright saloon has a remarkably open layout with an L-shaped settee, adjustable table, TV cabinet, wine storage locker, and a bar with two stools! The galley is also well appointed and considerably sized with granite counter tops, a plethora of cabinets and drawers, large double sink, full sized fridge and freezer, trash compactor, garbage disposal built in microwave, and more! The owner's stateroom, with a full walk-around queen berth and a number of storage lockers, is located amidship in the quietest area of the boat, and the most comfortable when at sea! The ensuite head features a Masterflush toilet, granite counter tops and a large separate shower stall - fully tiled! The forward cabin features single bunks with plenty of storage. The below deck accommodations can be accessed through either stairs from the pilothouse or from the galley - a convenience and safety attribute of the 52 design!

The 52 pilothouse has all the essential ingredients of a true offshore passagemaker. It's design reflects the sea-going heritage of all DeFever Offshore Cruisers - great comfort at sea; excellent visibility ahead and abeam; quick and easy access to port and starboard side decks; a thoughtfully designed instrument console; a settee that offers the mate or crew excellent visibility as well as a comfortable watch berth, and enough room for a comfortable fixed helm seat.

From the boat deck to the pilothouse to the engine room, the DeFever 52 has been designed for cruising in comfort. Our 52 Euro is one fine motor yacht built to endure! It's another quality offshore cruiser in the DeFever line, where the name says it all.
