 Designed by Arthur DeFever, the Heritage East 36 Sundeck is a classic trawler-style motor yacht that retains the lines and characteristics of the original DeFevers, which made the brand so popular with the cruising fraternity.

“Liberty” provides a comfortable and safe environment with wide side decks bordered by stainless steel safety rails, easy access from the sundeck down to the swim platform and up to the flybridge via molded stairs, not ladders.

 With the roomy two stateroom, two head, large salon and galley interior and exterior with covered sundeck and fully enclosed flybridge, Liberty makes it easy to feel at home.

 Her single Cummins diesel engine, bow and stern thrusters give not only excellent fuel mileage but also makes docking and handling in “close quarters” a breeze.

 Some of the key systems and upgrades are listed here and the comprehensive listings are within:
