The flagship of Carver’s new modern, state of the art fleet of cruising yachts is the very extraordinary C52 Coupe. The C52 incorporates the spacious layouts and the elegant design features that Carver accomplished on the C34, C37 and C43 coupes, and then took it to the next level in this remarkable yacht. The C52 Coupe is the crown jewel of the company’s recent design rejuvenation efforts, applying modern technology combined with over 60 years of experience to meet discerning yacht owners’ expectations.

Being the largest yacht in Carver’s coupe lineup, the C52 has applied their inspired coupe design elements to this yacht that take on new meaning within the framework of a large cruiser. The impressive appearance of the axe stainless steel plated bow along with the C52’s high freeboard and low profile cabin combine to make a dramatic statement. These classic features also produce space in abundance while enhancing performance. The design team made good use of those attributes to create an exceptional contemporary yacht that insightful yacht owners will acknowledge is by far at the top of its class.

The galley is centrally-located, providing accessibility to the aft cockpit area or the salon dining area located forward. This location and open access forward and aft insures you won’t ever feel disconnected from your guests.

As with all Carver’s coupe designs the helm areas location and layout allow you to confidently navigate your favorite waterways while enjoying an inclusive cruising experience along with your guests. The C52 has an expansive full beam master stateroom that is located midship below the salon and galley area. A private entryway is provided with a stairway that winds down to the lower deck from the port side of the galley. Carver never lets an opportunity to add more storage space go unnoticed so along the stairway you will notice even more handcrafted cabinetry.

In the master suite, the large windows port and starboard allow abundant amounts of natural light to pour into the cabin and there are also ports that can be opened to enjoy a cross breeze on a nice day. The raised island queen sized bed is located center cabin with a direct view to the recessed flat screen television. There are two hanging lockers and cabinets throughout the suite for plenty of storage space for all your gear.

The axe bow design of the C52 keeps more hull in the water forward smoothing out the ride in heavy seas. As we have seen while examining the C52’s spacious layout it also increases the interior volume of the yacht considerably.

As the flagship of the Carver coupe line up, the C52 had a lot to live up to, and she has distinguished herself as a worthy performer.  With the C52 Coupe the innovative design not only responded to the demands of discerning cruising yacht owners but has significantly exceeded all expectations.   

Carver will continue to listen, innovate, and proudly include the essence of their storied lineage into the soul of every yacht that they produce. The C52 Coupe has answered that call.
