General Details

The yacht ELIZABETH is unique in all the world! Her owner who is in the marine stainless steel manufacturing business has lavished her with countless improvements and upgrades. Most obvious are the aft Cockpit addition and the Sport Bridge addition but there are other upgrades from stem to stern. ELIZABETH is more easily compared to a Carver 564 Cockpit Motoryacht than her original Carver 506 dimensions.

ELIZABETH has served as the owner’s showplace for his business with many of his ideas and improvements later sold to other boat manufacturers.

This one is really worth a look!


Seller will consider a trade up to a larger classic motor yacht.

Construction Notes
Hull extension and swim platform extension were performed by Aqua Yacht Harbor, Iuka, Mississippi. It was overseen by a surveyor, his notes from a valuation survey September 15, 2009, ($769,000 appraised value) are below: Surveyor’s Note: Beautiful, meticulously maintained ELIZABETH, presents in better than new condition and is a one-of-a-kind motoryacht as exemplified by her serious customization and upgrades. Her hull has recently been professionally and meticulously lengthened approximately two (2) feet aft as well as her swim platform, making her overall length approximately 55’ feet 7” inches. A custom second control station (Sport Tower) has been added directly above the Pilothouse providing extra navigational capabilities as well as improved all-around visibility. Numerous amenities, furnishings and electronics upgrades are visible through-out much of the vessel’s interior spaces. As for ELIZABETH’s stock factory options she offers spacious living accommodations by virtue of a design that features raised, nearly flush deck walk-arounds which enable the Salon to be expanded the full width of the beam. That gives the 506 a wider, roomier-than-expected interior which features a “great room” that encompasses the Salon, Galley and Dining Area. The two tiered elliptical window configuration offers unparalleled visibility whether passengers are seated or standing – plus, the streamlined windows add to the swept back exterior styling. The 506 offers three main levels for entertaining including a custom designed Sundeck. The Command Bridge, Aft Deck and Cabins… all are fully air conditioned and enclosed. On the Bridge, there’s a wet bar and seating for the captain and guests, including an L shaped Lounge aft, and a double wide Lounge on the starboard side. The hardtop with its retractable sunroof spans the entire Bridge and Aft Deck. An integral stairway leads to the large Aft Deck, which provides easy access to the Salon, side decks boarding platform which is complimented with a custom built overhead canopy. The wide raised side deck walk-arounds provides easy movement fore and aft. Powered by twin Volvo turbo charged diesel engines, the power package will cruise the vessel at approximately 18 knots, with a top speed of 21 knots, acceptable and comfortable.
The yacht ELIZABETH is unique in all the world! Her owner who is in the marine stainless steel manufacturing business has lavished her with countless improvements and upgrades. Most obvious are the aft Cockpit addition and the Sport Bridge addition but there are other upgrades from stem to stern.

Owner is open to all types of smaller boat trades, particularly Express Cruisers.
