Blue Turtle Cruising

Blue Turtle - 1974 Defever Passagemaker 40'

1974 Defever Passagemaker

Blue Turtle was our first vessel and the perfect live aboard cruising trawler. A 1974 40' DeFever Passagemaker trawler built in California by Jenson Marine, she had a single engine with bow and stern thrusters which made docking a breeze. With a full displacement hull and full keel, she handled seas very well. She was our full-time home for over 9 years and we actively cruised her to local anchorages, the Florida Keys and the Dry Tortugas.
