Carver 444 Motoryacht (Not in Production) Line Drawing

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.For more information call (920) 822-1600 or visit www.carveryachts.com.
