Escapade Overview

Escapade is a classic Defever 44 sundeck motor yacht with the renowned Ford Lehman SP 135 diesel engines, a Westerbeke 12.5 kw Genset and a Westerbeke 8.5 kw genset. She has comfortable living space, a full beam master stateroom with a queen sized bed, twin v-berths forward, two full heads and an open and airy salon. In addition to the full lower helm, she has a full upper helm covered by a Bimini that spans the full upper deck with Stratoglass roll-up windows. However, her real feature is the full-width covered aft deck with teak table and chairs for four, two comfortable lounge chairs, Sunbrella roll-down sunscreen, ice maker and Magma Newport gas grill.

Since acquired by the current owner, there have been many upgrades and additions listed in detail on the following pages. She has been maintained with an open checkbook policy. Escapade was last hauled in February 2012 for bottom coat and stabilizer maintenance, following a regular three year cycle for haul out and maintenance. Her engine, transmission and generator fluids are tested each year and all reports are available for review. Her owners are selling due to a decision to build a lake house and because of work and other commitments they cannot maintain and enjoy two recreational retreats in different parts of the state. 

Under a former owner, Escapade has done the Loop, cruised the Bahamas and the Caribbean and ventured as far south as Trinidad. She is a proven blue water cruiser that has been meticulously maintained and is ready to go.
