The Jefferson 49 Pilothouse Motor Yacht is an exceptionally rare model combining the best features of the 52 Pilothouse model, while packing everything into a vessel 50' LOA. This rare feature was designed with the mooring fields in mind as many owners of 52PH models noted some difficulty in finding mooring balls equipped to handle a motor yacht over 50'.
Jefferson Yachts was founded in 1982 by Leon Shaw. Jefferson imported and marketed a series of Taiwan-built trawlers and motor yachts, all manufactured by Hershine Marine Yachts.
Hershine Yachts originates from Taiwan, with its first shipyard built in 1977 located in Kaohsiung District, and setup their Zhuhai facilities in 2000. Hershine has delivered over 1,250 impeccable yachts in their 45 years of history.
In 2000, following up on the success of their partnership, Hershine and Jefferson introduced their Pilothouse series of yachts starting with the 52' Pilothouse in 2000, and then this 49' Pilothouse in 2002.
Much like other prestigious Taiwanese Yacht brands such as Tayana, Hylas, and Nordhavn to name a few, the superior quality of Hershine/Jefferson Yachts are a true testament to fine craftsmanship and modern innovation. Unlike the traditional features of the Grand Banks' teak decks, and gorgeous, but demanding bright work, the Jefferson yachts are bit more modern in design and boast lower maintenance exteriors featuring Awlgripped decks, stainless cap rails, and virtually no exterior teak to sand or varnish.
This incredibly well-equipped vessel is perfect for cruising the ICW, Canada, Bahamas, and beyond. The current owners spent the last five years cruising each summer in New England, the Elizabeth Islands, Martha's Vineyard, Maine, and the Chesapeake Bay, and spent their winters aboard in Charleston, St. Augustine, and the Bahamas.
Packed full of creature comforts, this well appointed pilothouse cockpit motor yacht boasts the following features ideal for long range cruising:
- Primary Stateroom with King size Walkaround/Island Bed and Ensuite Head & Shower Compartment - Custom Memory Foam Mattress, Custom Fitted Sheets, Downfeather Pillowtop Mattress Cover, etc.
