Manufacturer Info



Based in Pulaski, Wisconsin, Carver Yachts has carved a niche in the recreational boating marketplace as a builder of flybridge cruisers that maximize every usable inch on board for improved entertaining areas and accommodations that are among the most spacious in their class. And those creature comforts are incorporated into cruising platforms that have been proven both durable and dependable. While the Carver brand has been on the scene since 1954, the builder really made its mark in 1984 as a pioneer of the aft cabin motor yacht, a style of boat that became synonymous with the brand for the next decade. Today, the company manufacturers a model line that ranges from a new C34 to the flagship 54 Voyager. Carver designs represent good value as each model comes with a number of standard features, including the Carver Docking System that’s comprised of high-capacity bow and stern thrusters.
