An outstanding example of the Carver 57 Voyager Pilothouse, Family Ties has many desirable options that set her apart from the crowd. The fiberglass hardtop means that you will never have to replace a canvas bimini top, and the rigidity of the top means that the recently replaced isinglass curtains, JENN-AIR grill and seat covers will last a long time.
Docking this boat is a dream, because she comes with both a bow thruster and a stern thruster. The high horsepower (675 hp) Volvo diesels with single lever electronic controls make her handle extremely well, even in wind and current.
Many upgrades make this boat standout. In the master stateroom, the owner replaced the original television with a 20 inch HD flat screen, which allowed him to remodel the shower and make it bigger and more comfortable. Now the bathtub installed by Carver is actually usable.
The original television in the salon was replaced with a 32 inch HD flat screen, with remote tilt, that is connected to Dish TV with Surround Sound and a replaced DVD. Additionally, this display has the ability to display the chartplotter screen. The Salon settee backs have been upgraded with additional stuffing. Two of the four air conditioning units were recently replaced; with the Pilothouse unit being increased in size with an added vent under the seat.
The twin Volvo diesels are freshly serviced, with all fluids, filters and impellers being replaced. This boat is very clean; exterior washes every two weeks and a bottom that has just been cleaned when the zinc was replaced. She is well maintained and ready to travel!
The owner is continuing his aggressive maintenance program. The boat was quick-hauled the last week of December, 2013 for bottom paint inspection and zinc replacement. Two new air conditioners have been installed in January 2014.
