Carver Yachts has gone through what can only be described as a renaissance in recent years. Every model in their line-up has been redesigned to respond to the styling, comfort, and performance demands of today’s sophisticated boater. Offering a range of 34’ to 52’ models in both express style coupe and command flybridge designs the C37 Coupe has the distinction of being the first addition in this new line meant to deliver on those high expectations.

The C37 style hints of trends one would expect from European designs, yet it’s all American. Carver has built boats at their factory in Pulaski, WI since 1954. Their formula for success is blending all those years of experience, listening to what boaters want and incorporating modern manufacturing methods and equipment to create the ideal yacht. Experienced craftsmen dedicate themselves to building world-class luxury cruisers that redefine what a cruising yacht should be.

The C37 has an uncanny retro feel with its axe bowline and high freeboard that carries well forward. This impressive look provides practical benefits as well. Carrying the 13’6” beam forward results in a spacious lower deck that’s unexpected in a cruiser of this class. The single head, two stateroom design features a large master stateroom with 6’5” headroom, a queen size bed, two hanging closets, 4 overhead cabinets with lots of natural light provided through the large windows and overhead hatch.

The second stateroom can be configured either as two twin beds or by installing the filler cushion it converts to a full queen bed. A large hanging closet and storage cabinet offers ample space for guests and their gear with additional storage under the bunks.  An overhead etched glass skylight and large side window add natural light contributing to open felling of the space. Adding a flat screen TV and separate stereo system will provide your guest with all the comforts of home while aboard.

The C37 coupe head boasts a stall shower, beautiful sink, plenty of storage room and high-quality fixtures with plenty of lighting all features typically found in larger yachts. The large side window combined with an overhead etched skylight for privacy provides abundant natural lighting

On hot days and nights a dedicated lower deck air conditioning system will adjust the climate to your comfort level. On cooler days ports open in each room and the hatch in the master suite that open with screens letting the sea breeze circulate throughout. With abundant headroom, wide beam, and exceptional craftsmanship the lower deck on the C37 is impressive. 

Heading up to the spacious main deck the helm, salon, and galley layout provides an inclusive flowing living area for you and your guests to interact in comfort and style. The carbon fiber retractable sun roof opens with a touch of the button adding to the open and airy feel when enjoying a nice day on the water.

The C37 helm offers all around visibility with its large windshield & side windows. It is well thought, out providing abundant space for the latest navigation equipment and system controls. The helm seat slides forward and back to easily adjust to your desired position and the flip up bolsters change position quickly allowing you to operate the boat sitting or standing as you desire.   

An adjustable passenger seat is located opposite the helm with space for two. The inviting lounge area is stylish and practical providing clever ways to adjust the seating configurations for dining or cocktail hour. There is a huge amount of storage under the seats and below deck. The dining table can be lowered adding additional sleeping space for two with plush filler cushions. Positioning the galley in a central location offers easy access to both the salon and aft deck. With plenty of storage space and a recessed stove and sink the galley provides lots space with an elegant appearance.

A key feature of the C37 Coupe is the large glass folding doors open across the width of the boat to create a seamless transition between the aft deck and the salon. Salon seating is adjustable to change the focal point to the outdoors. An additional ice maker and refrigerator can be added helping make this area the main attraction for cocktail hour.

When it is time to close for the day simply close the doors and you’re done.  There’s no canvas, no isinglass to zip or snap, just beautiful and so effortless!

The aft cockpit retractable sun shade opens with the touch of a button providing shade over the entire cockpit while enhancing the connection with the salon area. The sturdy stainless-steel frame allows shade to be deployed while underway. The teak cockpit table is perfect for alfresco dining or can be lowered to create a large sun pad with plush cushions. There are large storage areas under all the seating for lines, fenders and other gear, again evidence of Carvers dedication to creating abundant storage.    

The stainless-steel transom door provides access to the oversized swim platform. There you’ll find plenty of additional storage for your gear, freshwater shower, and shore power equipment.    

Easy and safe access to the expansive bow features integrated fiberglass cockpit steps with plenty of sturdy stainless-steel hand rails to grab on to. The large stainless-steel bow rails combine with a wide non-skid deck to provide quick access.

Like all Carver Yachts the C37 is built tough utilizing “Infusion Technology” along with an extraordinary stringer system that reinforces the bow as much as the bottom. That means less weight, more strength, and better performance! Carver’s manufacturing operation is unique in the industry possessing in house capabilities for components usually left to sub-contractors. This horizontal integration insures the highest quality in the industry. Carver craftsman produce cabinetry, upholstery, and metal fabrication in on-site workshops where the boats are built.    

The standard propulsion configuration offers twin gas Mercury 6.2 Bravo - 350 HP Sea Core stern drives. With a dry weight of just 18,000 lbs., 250 gallons of fuel the C37 has a top speed of 37 knots with a 238-mile range at a cruising speed of 25 knots. Also available are Mercury diesel stern drives and inboard gas or diesel. The images below show the C37 outfitted with twin Volvo D4 EVC 300 HP diesel inboard, a Kohler 9.0 KW, 60 HZ diesel generator. A stainless-steel ladder presents easy access to a spacious engine room. Service, inspections and maintenance tasks are optimized by placing all the through hull fittings, strainers, valves, filters, and switches centerline for easy access.      

As the first offering in a new era for Carver the C37 Coupe has placed the company on squarely at the leading edge of modern yacht design. The C37 blends styling that is sure to turn heads on the water with the luxury, comfort, and practical performance demanded by today’s discerning yacht owners.
