1997 Carver 405 Aft Cabin Motor Yacht

The Carver 405 is a conservative, heavily built cabin cruiser whose principal characteristics are a spacious floor plan and an excellent aft deck. The 405 rides on a deep “V” hull which is quite unusual in an American built motor yacht. Hull construction is solid fiberglass and with nearly 14 feet of beam, the 405 is a spacious yacht inside. Her two state rooms, galley down interior is arranged with the galley and dinette down from the salon. Angled double berths are found in each stateroom with the master aft with its en-suite head electric toilet and separate shower stall. Light color woodwork, excellent matching fabrics and large salon windows make the 405 feel like a much large yacht. The aft deck is large enough for a crowd and the flybridge can be accessed along either the port or starboard side. With a full flybridge Sunbrella enclosure and the aft deck hard top and Sunbrella enclosure, these exterior spaces can become additional living spaces.

This 1997 Luxury Carver 405 MY is a well-built double cabin, double head motor yacht with an appealing blend of space, comfort, and value. The vessel can sleep 7 comfortably, has 2-zone AC/Heating units, a Westerbeke 7.5 KW generator and twin Crusader 454 XLI gas inboards with velvet drive transmissions. The engine room has been well maintained and is in exceptionally clean condition.

Upon boarding the Carver, you are greeted by a large aft sundeck with hardtop and full isinglass enclosures. There is also a wet bar and ice maker. The bridge with centerline helm has a full array of Raymarine electronics, including two large displays with GPS navigation, radar, depth sounder, marine radio, and DTV satellite dome. The bridge includes pathway lighting and overhead lighting on the sundeck. There is an adjustable helm seat and a double companion seat at helm and a large settee foreword of the helm. Below deck, enter the salon with built-in dry bar storage area to starboard and panoramic 180-degree unlimited views as the windows surround you while maintaining privacy and sun protection with 100% UV window tinting. This spacious main salon includes a large flat screen TV with surround sound, additional storage cabinets, and leather L-Shaped Flex-Steel sofa to port that converts to a double bed and also provides a convenient chart storage compartment. A large peninsula type serving counter defines the salon from the galley, featuring spacious leather seating in its U-Shaped dinette that converts to a double bed, a Norcold refrigerator/freezer, electric 3-burner cook top/oven, full-size microwave, full size stainless steel sink, and built in coffee maker. The forward head/shower combo is to port accessible from the galley, adjacent to the forward VIP stateroom. The forward stateroom offers privacy from the Master aft stateroom, offset double berth, flat screen TV and cabinets and drawers for storage. The Master stateroom features an island oversized queen berth which is located slightly offset to port permitting easy access to both sides along with port and aft settee, and a newer cool gel memory foam mattress. Abundant storage space, large flat screen TV, large hanging cabinet, and chest of drawers create a luxurious and comfortable space, along with private master head with acrylic stall shower and stainless steel basin.

A great combination of luxury and size, the Carver 405 will not disappoint you!
