The remarkable C52 Command Bridge has the distinction of being the largest flybridge cruiser in Carver’s growing feet of newly designed contemporary yachts. The C52’s impressive framework allowed her designers to capitalize on the special benefits and styling advantages created by employing a striking axe bow and high freeboard architecture. The extra space and performance benefits of this design carried forward from the smaller C36 and C40 with even more dramatic results on the C52.
