Project: Carver 36 Mariner

Carver yachts has always been into making these hybrid looking sport bridge cruiser which makes maximum use of beam inside in a wide body feature, and the 36 Mariner keeps this heritage coming. Do you remember the nineties Santego series?  The 36 Mariner features a clever single level living main deck inside offering a relaxing L-shaped sofa, dining table, and galley.  Below to fore is a roomy owners double with en-suite head facilities.  Another nice feature of the 36 Mariner which comes from larger boats is also the forward settee located on the fore deck, something not seen much in modern cruisers of this size.  The aft deck of the 36 Mariner is left free, but the sun deck area where the helm is located features three bench settees, with a table in the middle.  Power is from four choices from Crusader, Yanmar, and Volvo from 200 up to 375hp in petrol gasoline or diesel power.  The twin Yanmar 315hp is the diesel option.
