Carver C52 Command Bridge:
Carver’s Flagship Is Ready for Cruising

Carver C52 Command Bridge
The Carver C52 Command Bridge has a 15’8” (4.77 m) beam and displaces 42,000 lbs. (19.090 kg.) dry, and draws 4’3” (1.3 m) with her V-drives and props in tunnels.

Carver’s flagship is a 3-stateroom, 2-head flybridge cruiser that has an especially large salon thanks to the positioning of her helm on the flying bridge. With the addition of an optional hardtop and isinglass, as seen in the photo above, she becomes a versatile cruiser that can take on multiple missions from local entertaining, to extended coastal cruising.
