General Details

Among the most popular models Carver has produced in its nearly 50-year history, is the 28 foot Voyager. They remain popular today because they are ideally suited to the boater who is looking to buy their first cruiser without breaking the bank.

Designed by Carver's in-house design team led by Bob MacNeill, the 28-foot Voyager model was introduced in 1983 and remained in production through the 1990 model year.

The hull, decks and superstructure of these models are constructed of fiberglass composites using chopped strand and woven fiberglass fabrics. Balsa and plywood cores are used to strengthen and stiffen laminates. The structure is further strengthened with fiberglass liners as well as plywood stringers and frames encapsulated in fiberglass. The deck is fit over the hull in a shoebox fashion and secured with stainless steel screws and fiberglass tabbing.

When it comes to making the most use of available space, the deck layout of the 28 Voyager is tough to beat. It offers something to please just about any boater, and this is no mean feat to accomplish with only 28 feet.

The cockpit is about 45 square feet and has enough room for a couple of deck chairs or for several people to fish without getting in the way. There are large hatches in the cockpit deck for engine access and a door in the transom for convenient access to the swim platform. The side decks are less than a foot wide but are well protected by a stainless steel rail that is full height nearly to the cockpit. . There are also stainless steel grab rails along the entire side and on top of the flybridge. Few boats offer passengers and crew greater security while traversing from the cockpit to the foredeck.

The one feature of the 28-foot Voyager that nearly every owner and prospective purchaser finds appealing is its huge flybridge with multiple configurations for seating and lounging. Normally configured, there are two forward-facing bench seats that will seat six people. While dockside or at anchor, the back of the helm seat may be flipped forward to make a U-shaped settee for entertaining.

The main saloon of the 28 Voyager is 11 feet long, 8 feet wide and offers as much living space as many 30-footers. The cabin is entered through a sliding door offset slightly to the starboard side of the cockpit. . The forward owner's cabin has an angled, 52-inch-wide double berth, two hanging lockers and a wash basin.

She comes equipped with the standard twin 220-hp gasoline engines installed with V-drives below the cockpit deck. This installation has several advantages in that it places the weight of the engines in the preferred location and the cabin space is quieter when the engines are running.

With a normal load, the cruising speed is about 17 mph and top speed about 26 mph. Fuel consumption is about 23 gallons per-hour at cruising speed; fuel capacity is 150 gallons which, allowing for a 10% reserve, limits the cruising range to about 120 miles.
