Rule the waves
Following in the footsteps of their C43 model that debuted in Miami in 2015, next year, Carver Yachts will be introducing, the latest addition to their ‘C’ series – the Carver C50 Command Bridge. The new C50 offers three staterooms and two heads in one of the most spacious layouts of a boat in its class.
Unique design elements include a full-beam master stateroom, located amidships, which features its own private entrance from the main salon. The master stateroom itself features an island queen berth, a seating area off to port, and a large ensuite head with a spacious shower stall.
Beam: 15’ 8” / 4.78m
Draft: 48” / 1.22m
Weight (Dry w/ Standard Engines): 42,000 lbs. / 19,051kg
Fuel Capacity: 550 U.S. gal. / 2082 L
Water System: 150 U.S. gal. / 568 L
Holding Tank Capacity: 80 U.S. gal. / 303 L
Two additional staterooms, and a second head also fitted with a separate shower stall, are located forward. The VIP stateroom, located at the bow, also features a queen-size island berth, two fixed hull windows, and a large deck hatch, complete with integrated escape ladder. The guest stateroom is located off to starboard and is fitted with two single berths. It also features a fixed hull window and an opening port for ventilation.
A stand-out feature on the C50, which is similar to the other models in this series, are the large Euro-style doors that lead from the cockpit to the main salon and galley area. A majority of the aft salon area is utilized by the galley off to port. Conveniently located for entertaining, especially to the cockpit, the galley features a solid surface countertop, ample storage, a two burner cook top, and a micro-wave/convection oven. Off to starboard, and directly adjacent to the galley, is the private entrance to the master stateroom.
Further forward, and up a couple of steps, you’ll find a large u-shaped dinette off to port, with ample seating for at least five. Off to star-board, a spacious l-shaped lounge offers additional seating for guests. Owners may also opt for a lower helm station, which would be located in this area. The l-shaped lounge would then be reduced to a single sofa to allow room for the lower helm seat and control panel.
The exterior of the C50 features the same distinct lines of the other models in Carvers lineup. Wide side decks will provide access to the foredeck seating area, and back aft, a large cockpit will entertain many guests.
A set of moulded steps from the cockpit leads to the enormous bridge, which fea-tures ample guest seating. The aft section of the bridge is comprised of a large u-shaped lounge, complete with a teak table, which can be raised and lowered to convert the area into a sun lounge. Additional seating is found for-ward and to port, and off to starboard you’ll find the helm with provisions for mounting a full array of electronics. A must have option is the wet bar fitted with a refrigerator.
Other key options include a hardtop with an enclosure and bridge air conditioning, a hydraulic swim platform, crew quarters, a cock-pit freezer, a washer & dryer, and a day head.
The new C50 will be available in a choice of four hull colours: standard White, Carbon Black, Marina Blue, and Sterling Taupe. When it comes to propulsion, Carver offers three die-sel choices from Cummins (400, 600 & 715 hp). According to the manufacturer, the C50 is designed to remain on plane at low speeds with the least amount of horsepower. Wide chines aft increase the lateral stability, and a higher forefoot deadrise and tapered chines forward make for a sharper entry.
The C50 Command Bridge was scheduled to debut at the Yacht & Brokerage Show in Miami Beach, February 2016.
