New Model: Carver C34

A much awaited new Carver in my books, and also an interesting offer for customers looking in the ten meter flybridge motor cruiser segment, this is the C34.  One of the most interesting themes of this new Carver C34 is for sure the very European looks which also shows how this kind of style has become a World affair in recent years for flybridge cruisers and yachts.  Accommodation wise the Carver C34 offers an interesting plan with two cabins sleeping four; owners cabin to forward, and a twin berth guest cabin to starboard side at midships.  Extra two berths which bring the total to six are found in the convertible dinette which becomes an extra double bed.  The galley is located at the main deck and is in L-shaped form with the lower helm choice, or a bit larger in C-shape if one does not want the interior pilot station.  Other interesting spacious themes are the flybridge with a small sunpad to aft, and a well spaced C-shaped settee to port side opposite of the upper helm station.  Engines are a standard twin Mercruiser 300hp petrol gas, and a diesel option from Volvo with the same output.  Unlike most recent new offers the C34 goes to the tried and tested line shafts propulsion with a V-drive system which while adds a bit more to consumption can find the favour of experienced buyers due to known reliable this system brings.
