2014 CARVER C40
Carver C40 SEDAN BRIDGE Always fresh water and covered at the Lake of the Ozarks!!
Carver calls the sedan bridge design on the new C40 a “command bridge,” and while we waited for the helicopter to show for our cover photo shoot, I could see the reasoning. Normally you can hear a chopper well before you see it, but from the elevated helm of the C40 I noticed it appear far off on the horizon, instantly validating the commanding view a bridge affords.
In designing a cruiser with a command bridge helm, Carver is aiming squarely at smaller express cruiser owners looking to up their overall length, cruising comfort and range. To achieve that, Carver designed the all-new C40 from the keel up, which means it sprung from new tooling with a fresh new design. Outside of the bridge, the most striking thing about the boat is its plumb bow, a design that carries the bow vertically down to the waterline. While plumb bows are common on workboats, military vessels and trawlers, it’s rare to see one on a planing cruiser these days — most builders opt for a stem that rakes aft to connect with the bottom at the waterline. A plumb bow keeps more hull in the water forward, helping to smooth the ride in rough seas. It also increases the interior volume of the boat, which, when combined with the 13-foot-6-inch beam, allows for a spacious layout belowdecks.
The C40 is a dramatic yacht designed, styled and handcrafted by Carver Yachts. This contemporary design features numerous high value features such as distinctive exterior styling, a spacious and highly functional command bridge, dependable twin inboard propulsion, two private staterooms, two head compartments and a unified floor plan designed for enjoying extended time on the water. And, through the utilization of the most modern materials and yacht building techniques, the C40 is priced to represent the absolute best value of any boat in this class. Position yourself atop the C40’s elevated command bridge and see the world from an entirely new perspective. 360 degree unobstructed vision is a joy while operating the C40 and provides a great point of view while relaxing on the spacious bridge. The command bridge is certain to become a favorite place while at sea, anchored or dockside. At sea level the C40 has an integrated swim platform designed to perfectly perform several important functions. The swim platform and cockpit walkway make it safe and easy to board the yacht while docked. The extra wide swim platform also serves as the perfect aquatic interface for swimming, diving or boarding your PWC, dinghy and other water toys. The C40’s cockpit has volumes of comfortable built-in seating and storage lockers. From the cockpit you can walk securely up the homelike stairway to the command bridge, enter the spacious salon through the aft bulkhead’s extra-wide double doors or safely walk to the foredeck on the C40’s extra wide side-deck. When the yacht’s bulkhead doors are open the galley, dinette, salon, cockpit and swim platform become a single, unified living environment. In true Carver tradition the C40 provides the interior space and accommodations typically found on much larger yachts. Privacy is a key feature of the C40 that all will appreciate. Both the master and guest staterooms have rigid bulkhead doors and there are two spacious head compartments on board. The master head features a homelike stall shower with Plexiglas ® door.
