1982 Carver 3607 Aft Cabin Motor Yacht
"MESSIN AROUND" is a low hour (698) freshwater boat, powered by twin 454 Crusaders which provide a cruising speed around 18mph and will top out around 25mph. The Carver 3607 features a dual purpose hull that was developed in response to the fuel crunch of the late '70's that allows the boat at slow speeds to behave like a semi-displacement hull producing fabulous fuel economy while also allowing the boat to get up on plane and cruise comfortably in the high teens. This boat has ALWAYS been a FRESHWATER VESSEL.
Typical of our fastidious owner, the bottom has been stripped and barrier coated even though there were no issues. Four blade Nibral props were an upgrade over the standard three blades...which should provide smoother acceleration and a vibration free ride. This is a two stateroom, two head boat. Step down into the spacious salon and prepare to be amazed. Large, opening windows highlight this area flooding the salon and galley areas with plenty of natural lighting. New carpeting, new sofa, new custom curtains..everything! All soft goods were new in '08. Newer three zone air conditioning and heat from Marine Air Systems was upgraded in appx. '06. This boat features a complete lower helm with electronics so that she can be run in comfort during inclement weather. The solid teak interior woodwork provides both warmth and a rich appearance that requires very little upkeep. There are three new flat screen TV's with DVD players built-in...one in the salon, one in the master stateroom and one located in the forward stateroom. The galley features a beautiful teak parquet floor, large dinette that seats four (upholstered with beautiful new textured fabric), full size Norcold refrigerator with freezer, Princess three burner stove top with oven, double stainless sinks, and enough storage areas to allow one to cruise or live aboard for a very long time. In fact, with the cost of waterfront property, this boat would make the most sense for anyone wanting a inexpensive waterfront condo...with the bonus of being able to relocate anytime.
The day head is forward of the galley and has dual entrances to allow for use from the forward stateroom as well. The forward stateroom features a large V-berth, updated Marine Air Systems (with its own control...unlike most 3607's), opening portlights with screens, overhead hatch with screen, Sylvania flatscreen TV With DVD player built-in, and a huge amount of storage spaces. This area is also resplendent in beautiful teak woodwork.
The master stateroom is aft and features a centerline queen size pedestal bed, flanked by dual bureau's which house drawers and cabinet doors. A fold out vanity seat and a full size vanity with make up mirror are abaft the port side head. The head features a tub shower (unusual on a 36' boat), large sink and vanity, large mirror and a nice amount of storage make this head one that a person will actually use. There is an amazing amount of doors and drawers providing excellent storage for extended cruising or living aboard.
The aft deck features new aft deck carpeting, newer black canvas weather boards, and plenty of space for deck chairs and lounges. Two steps up to the bridge finds many different seating options, allowing for a large crowd on a nice sunny day. The bridge is protected by a newer ('07) black bimini top and a complete eisenglass enclosure. The bridge carpeting and seat vinyls are newer as well ('07). The forward riding seat is hinged to access great storage and makes up into a sun lounge as well. A custom aluminum arch provides a great mounting area for antenna and is hinged in the event it is necessary to clear a low bridge. A complete compliment of electronics provide most of the information the skipper would want to go cruising . There is a fiberglass swim platform with a boarding ladder, Weaver Snap-Davits and standoffs as well as a outboard motor bracket. The bow pulpit features a roller and bit along with newer anchor rode. For a complete listing of equipment please call or email MAD About Boating.
