Carver 444 Motoryacht (Not in Production)
Carver 444 Motoryacht (Not in Production)
Carver’s 444 Motor Yacht is the newest addition to the Carver fleet. Its twin 370-hp Cummins really get this cruiser rolling, and once underway she is a good performer with a stable ride thanks to her 14-foot beam. The 444 is a fully functional yacht sporting plenty of space, a good turn of speed, and all the comforts of home.

Key Features

    A feature that has been added on this boat verses the 396 is a new cockpit so you can take full advantage of all watersport activities. What really brings some elegance to the 444 is the cherry wood cabinetry and trim throughout the entire boat. The salon features UltraLeather Flexsteel furniture for ultra comfort and a classy look. Two steps down, there’s a fully equipped galley. The 444 also has two staterooms, both with queen-sized berths and their private head/shower plus plenty of storage space.

Carver 444 Motoryacht (Not in Production) Captain's Report

Carver’s new 2001 444 Motor Yacht is actually based on the company’s 396 Motor Yacht, with a new cockpit added on so you can take full advantage of all watersports activities.

The 444’s sharp entry, subtle flare at the sheerline forward and flattened aft section practically guarantee a smooth ride—and there’s an efficient non-slip surface that will give you confidence when the decks do get wet.

What makes it all happen is a pair of 370-hp Cummins diamond edition diesels. These in-line 6’s have a relatively narrow envelope, which saves big space in the engine room. Walker Airseps keep the space clean, and the turbochargers provide plenty of torque in the mid-range. The fuel and oil filters are easily reached for servicing, as are the dipsticks.

Out on the water, the 444 turned in a top speed of 32.5 mph at 3000 rpm, with a best cruise of more than 27 mph at just 250 rpm off wide-open throttle. Given her fuel burn rate of just 28.6 gallons per hour at best cruise, she’ll go for nearly 300 miles on a fill up, and we found that control around the docks was very precise. With plenty of space, a good turn of speed, and all the comforts of home, this Carver really is a great introduction to the new millennium.
