The true measure of a boat is when you actually get out on the water. All the glitz and jazzy video and audio electronics available on today’s cruising yachts are of small comfort when you’re bouncing from wave top to wave top or wallowing in the troughs. That’s why Carver designs their boats for maximum cruising enjoyment, regardless of sea conditions. Even at the dock, we’ve taken measures to give you more room and a seamless indoor-outdoor living space designed especially for relaxed entertaining and overnight comfort.
Starting inside, the hallmark of every Carver Yacht is the amount of interior space provided in the salon, staterooms and yes, even the heads. You could say a Carver Yacht is designed from the inside out to offer more room and comfort than any other boat its size. You only have to step inside a Carver to see the difference. The design process also ensures that every component part is system matched for maximum performance and reliability. And one more important consideration—that every Carver Yacht is drop dead gorgeous.
The key to greater performance and better fuel economy is a lighter boat. And this is where Carver technology exceeds all expectations. To keep our boats lighter without sacrificing strength, Carver uses a unique vacuum infused resin technology that draws in a precise amount of resin to saturate the fiberglass laminate, rather than “over wetting” like other processes can do. This state-of-the-art-technology results in the elimination of voids and excess fiberglass and resin build-up making the part both lighter and stronger.
That’s why we use vacuum infusion in the formation of ourhulls and most other component parts. Add it all up, and we eliminate hundreds of pounds of excess weight resulting in a yacht that’s stronger and performs better. Carver’s technical expertise also extends to providing each Carver Yacht with the latest electronics, propulsion and comfort systems, each matched to give you the best cruising experience possible.
Many boats at the dock are pretty to look at. But how well do they perform when the going gets rough? All that pizazz is of small comfort when you’re stuck in rough weather and the seas are getting nasty. That’s why Carver takes great care to build a boat that can take it on the chin, one wave after another. To do this, we support our hulls with an extraordinary stringer system that reinforces the bow as much as the hull bottom. It’s not glamorous, and you’ll never see it once the building process is complete, but you’ll be glad of it the first time it’s blowing hard out at sea.
Carver also makes sure that only the best lamination components are used below the water line. This minimizes potential structural deterioration from water immersion. To add to the hull’s strength, each hull liner is also made from super-strong fiberglass, while aluminum floor trusses and cabin trusses create a structural grid that provides superior support throughout the boat. We even build our radar arches from welded premium-grade aluminum for optimum strength. From top to bottom, you can’t beat Carver’s attention to build quality.
At Carver Yachts, we continue to raise both structural standards and customer expectations through our cutting-edge technology and generations of handcrafted skills. We’re never satisfied with building anything less than the finest production cruising yachts in the world. Which is why every step of construction is performed in-house with the highest quality control standards in the industry.
