Carver’s redesigned lineup carries more beam far
forward, giving the bow of the boat a pleasing,
rounded profile. The added benefit is greater interior
volume in the forward stateroom, and Carver has
made maximum use of it. Rather than the narrow,
sloping feel you’d find in many V-berths, the shape
of the bow allows the walls to appear plumb, opening up the cabin in a subtle way. New looks aside,
Carver has stuck with tried-and-true construction
and mechanicals in their yachts. If you’ve owned
an inboard-powered motoryacht, you’ll be instantly
familiar with the features onboard and likely know
intuitively how to operate and maintain them.

and ease of use of a cruiser. Three-stateroom
layout standard, with two being optional.
