Carver 38 Super Sport (Not in Production)
The redesign of the 38 Super Sport features improved overall handling, performance, and maneuverability in tight quarters. This is mostly due to the IPS or “Inboard Performance System” which pulls the boat, using a sterndrive like application with dual counter rotating props located underneath the boat. This system eliminates the drive shaft as seen on traditional inboard systems. Double-tier windows give the salon a dramatic look with exterior visibility from any angle.
