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.

1988 Carver Riviera


Wyandotte(Detroit),MI,United States

  • Boat Summary
  • Full Details


One of Carver's truly great boats.  She was only  produced from 83 till 89.  She is the biggest 28 footer you will ever find. When you look at her she looks more like a 32 foot.  Very unusual boat, and a true aft cabin. She will sleep 2 forward in privacy and sleep another pair , or more, in the private aft cabin.  In between you will find this great cockpit which will seat 8 to 9 adults.  This paticular Riviera is in super shape.  She had only 450hours on a pair of 5.0 LX Mercruiser Inboards.  The seats and cushions are great.  The canvas , as you can see, really is in great shape.  Boat has been very well taken care of.   .
