New Model: Carver 54 Voyager

Carver presents the 54 Voyager a flybridge motor yacht of American concept but having the European influence in the looks. The yacht's eye catching profile is configured as a true pilot house, incorporating a spacious fly bridge, lower helm choice, and highly functional split level salon which joins with the aft cockpit in a logical symmetry.  There is also an interior stair case from the saloon to the flybridge. Down below the Carver 54 Voyager sleeps six in three separate cabins; owners stateroom to midships, VIP to fore, and bunk twin guest room to port side.  The owners room is a full beam affair, with en-suite shower head.  A second guest shower head services the guests.   Power is from Volvo or Cat engines from 500 up 575hp, with traditional reliable line shaft propulsion.  A worth note is the considerable fuel capacity of 3000 liters, which with not so big engines should give a good range for a planning motor yacht of seventeen meters in size.
