Attention Defever owners

Postby Jerry rogers » Wed Jan 11, 2012 8:08 am

Greetings all
We will actively /physically begin our search for a loop boat this year. Having been convinced from earlier posts to avoid shipping from west coast to midwest, I have recently stumbled upon the 41 foot Defever. I understand there are a number of Defever designed boats on the market, but I am refering only to those manufactured by POCTA. About 10 years ago production was moved from Taiwan to Mainland China. I suspect when the company moved, the tradesmen who built these boats did not. So I have but a few questions for you Defever owners. If you would, please respond directly to my email address: egadrogers@gmail.com.
Are there any particular years of production you would avoid due to the move of the manufacturing site?
If you had to do it over, would you purchase your Defever? Something different?
Some of the boats I have seen have teak decks. Pros/Cons?
Anything in particular I should look for?
The 41 Defevers I have seen on Yachtworld are just so reasonably priced that I wonder if they are too good to be true.
Any thoughts are greatly appreciated.
