Carver Yachts 34-footer

Carver C34 Coupe

Carver Yachts said today that it has just completed the first sea trials of its new C34 Coupe.

The boat has optional private guest accommodations and is powered by twin 300-hp Mercury MerCruiser sterndrive engines.

It topped out at 35.5 knots with a full load and a two- to three-foot chop during sea trials.

The C34’s main level has a galley with a U-shaped dinette and an adjustable high-low dining table and filler cushions. There is an optional retractable sunroof, and European-style sliding glass doors lead from the salon to the cockpit.

The starboard-side helm station incorporates an adjustable seat to allow the captain to stand or sit. It also provides space for navigational systems, instrumentation and electronics.

Cabin headroom is 6 feet, 8 inches, and there is as much as 6.5 feet in the lower level.

The C34’s forward stateroom features a berth on the lower level, which also includes an L-shaped sofa that converts to a full-size berth.

The head has a separate enclosed shower stall and a vanity with a solid-surface countertop and vessel sink.

To keep the C34 lighter without sacrificing strength, Carver said it uses a unique vacuum-infused resin technology.
