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.
The C34 is designed specifically to meet the needs of today and tomorrow’s yachting enthusiasts. Proudly built one at a time in the USA, the features found in this line of yachts are firmly rooted in the company’s undisputed reputation for designing and building mid-sized command bridge vessels that are highly functional, extremely spacious, incredibly comfortable and very durable.
The C34 provides true yacht quality features including; twin inboard propulsion, joystick control, a spacious low profile command bridge, extra wide side deck walkways, a roomy open cockpit, expansive foredeck and an interior layout featuring two private staterooms.
The yacht’s styling features an aggressive raised sheer that complements the bold shape of the hull’s forward section and stem. The 34’s innovative hull form provides an exceptionally smooth, dry, stable ride. Twin inboard engines deliver outstanding performance, maneuverability, efficiency and dependability. And, the combination of twin inboards and a joystick controlled bow thruster make maneuvering the yacht in close quarters intuitive and precise. Your dockside arrivals and departures will be highly controlled, safe and stress free. The C34 is smooth and quiet because the propulsion system has been engineered to reduce engine noise and vibration at all RPM’s.
One of the C34’s many yacht quality features is the spacious command bridge. This highly functional elevated environment gives the captain and crew an unobstructed, 360 degree perspective of the yacht’s surroundings. Together with the helm area the command bridge features an expansive sun lounge and wraparound seating area with table.
Access to the yacht is gained with an easy step from the dock onto the extra wide swim platform. Step through the transom doorway and into the cockpit where you’ll find comfortable seating and numerous lockers in which to store fenders, dock lines, electrical cables and other essential gear. Utility and functionality are vital components in yachts designed by Carver so the cockpit stairway to the command bridge is both safe and secure as are the extra wide walkways from the cockpit to the foredeck.
The salon and below deck accommodations of the C34 are areas that further elevate this vessel to yacht status. The floor plan delivers an open, flowing area from the cockpit forward through the salon and galley. This paramount design feature provides un-interrupted entertaining capacity when enjoying the company of friends and family. The C34 can be built with a lower helm station on the starboard side of the salon. The homelike layout offers private sleeping accommodations in two separate staterooms. When using the convertible bed in the salon the yacht will accommodate six people. Each stateroom’s rigid wooden entry door provides much appreciated privacy. Also, the dedicated head compartment is designed with a spacious, comfortable fi berglass stall shower with bench seat and Plexiglas door – just like at home. In true Carver spirit, there are plenty of hanging lockers, drawers and cabinets throughout the yacht to stow all your necessities.
