Boat Description

Sea Biscuit is a 1999 Defever Offshore Cruiser. She is 44 feet in length and has a beam of 14 feet 9 inches. The draw is 4 feet 7 inches, and she displaces 48,000 pounds, or is a 24 ton boat. She requires an air draft, or height clearance of 20 feet. Sea Biscuit is powered by twin Perkins Diesel engines of 135 horsepower each. She is normally cruised at a leisurely seven to eight knots, an equivalent of eight or nine miles per hour, sometimes ten. When underway, she averages about 50 miles in an eight or ten hour day, as most cruising in the intracoastal waterway inevitably involves transiting bridges, some of which may need to be raised or swung out of our way, and No Wake zones which require operating the vessel at reduced speeds. Three fuel tanks store up to 950 gallons of fuel providing for a range of approximately 1,500 miles. Two water tanks store up to 350 gallons of fresh, potable water
