1995 Carver 355 Aft Cabin ......
Carver has always been famous for it's interiors and this fine boat carries on that tradition in style. This fresh water Carver 355 features a spacious 2 stateroom, 2 head design with the galley down. The current owner has completely redone the interior with a classic sense of style and luxury that complements the beautiful woods of the interior and accentuates the light, bright spacious layout. All new interior done within the last two years... Beautiful.
The exterior layout is also so very user friendly
with stairways ... not ladders, to take you from the swim platform to the
aft deck and the aft deck to the bridge. Easy and safe ... With 2
zone reverse cycle heat and air and a 6.5kw Kohler generator, you are ready
to go anywhere in comfort and style.
The forward stateroom features a generous over / under berth combination that allows you to sleep two individuals in overlapping bunks, or converts the lower berth easily to a spacious double for accommodating a couple. The custom designed and fitted cushion covers and matching shams are in excellent condition. There is a large overhead hatch with a custom cover for those late mornings ........
Next aft to starboard is a wonderful guest head with a electric head, a very nice and usable vanity with mirror and a shower with sump. The bright and easy to clean head features plenty of storage for your guest's necessities.
Still on the lower level and across to port is the galley. A brand new in 2005 Norcold refrigerator with top freezer, a built in microwave, coffee maker, 3 burner stove with oven, and tons of storage .... this galley makes preparing a meal or a snack easy and enjoyable. The high ceilings with the light from the windows make it spacious and light.
As you move aft and up one step, the dinette is to starboard. Within easy reach of the galley, It seats 4 for dinner and sleeps two of those emergency guests when desired. Additional storage is available under each of the dinette settees and in two cabinets along the outer wall.
The salon is next and up one more step. . It features a large and comfortable settee to port in a cream leather fabric. This converts (futon style) to a double berth for more guest sleeping when desired. The elegant occasional chair on the starboard side of the salon contains even more storage in a hidden drawer in its base. There is a beautiful wood cabinet for the TV and stereo equipment. There are two small leather ottomans and a occasional table for your lamps and reading material.
The built in mini blinds allow any combination of light and privacy and the new custom drapes are perfectly chosen to compliment the color scheme throughout the boat.
Moving aft through the passageway along the starboard side, you find the full width aft master stateroom. Beautiful and inviting, with a centerline queen sized island bed. Lots of storage throughout the stateroom and the passageway. A built in cabinet for the TV for that late evening viewing......and a wonderful private master head. Bright and roomy with a large glass shower stall with a built in seat for safety and comfort.
All in all, a beautiful, spacious and very nicely decorated interior. You will want to call it home.
