This is the Carver 346 with raised bridge.
This 36’ beauty emanates class and power with its unique raised bridge design.
The 346 features a spacious salon.
The salon features Ultraleather Flexsteel furniture including a love seat and lounge with storage beneath each. (Shown with available stereo and 6-disc CD changer.)
Royal treatment with this master suite.
The master stateroom offers a double island berth, lots of storage space, an available TV/VCR, plus a private head compartment with stall shower.
Guests will appreciate this roomy stateroom.
The forward stateroom has a double berth and ample storage, including two hanging lockers.
By eliminating bulkheads between the galley, salon, and dinette, Carver designers further enhanced the spaciousness that truly defines comfort and livability.
With a relatively low center of gravity, the 346 Motoryacht provides a secure and stable ride underway while at the same time offering excellent visibility, even aft while docking. For us it was a pleasure to test this new yacht and to see how aft-cabin designs have progressed over the past 10 years. Back in 1990 I conducted a long-term test of the ever-popular 32 Aft Cabin, and when you look at the lines of today's 346 you can see how Carver's designers have greatly sleekened the design while still offering all the amenities you're looking for in an aft-cabin motoryacht design.
Particularly noteworthy is the light and space you get in the main saloon. This is thanks to two tiers of exterior windows, and an L-shaped lounge to port and loveseat to starboard create a relaxing living room for up to five adults in ultraleather comfort. The 346 is also easy to walk around, with a spacious aft deck and two-step access up to the command bridge.
Performance was respectable at 33.7mph top end, and we'd expect to see a similar top speed even if you go for the smaller-hp diesel options. The new Merc 8.1S gas inboards did a great job of popping her up on plane in just 8.4 seconds, but consumed nearly all the real estate in the engine room which is located directly beneath the saloon floor. Fortunately, all dipsticks and fills are located inboard for easy access, and while her range at best cruise is somewhat limited at just 122 miles at best cruise, that still provides more than 5 hours of running time between fillups of her 196-gallon fuel tankage.
