Like an expert surfer, Carver appears to be riding a wave. The C37 (the “C” stands for Coupe) is the third new model the company has launched in the past 12 months. Keeping with Carver’s strength for years, it has given this boat a remarkably spacious interior for her length, in part thanks to space-saving stern drives.
Seems as though every boatbuilder worth the price of its tooling has listened to its public and responded with an uninterrupted single level from the transom to the helm. Aboard the C37, double glass doors (portside door is a bi-fold) swing open onto the saloon. Opposite an in-line galley to starboard is a settee with a table that seats four. Large windows all around and the sunroof wash the saloon with light, even on the cloudiest of days.
The C37 carries quite a lot of beam forward of amidships to permit a spacious master stateroom in the bow and a double on the starboard side. This much volume in a relatively short boat often demands unpleasant compromises in styling, but Carver’s design team has done a fine job. Substantial freeboard forward gives lots of headroom belowdecks, but the designers have disguised this with a lovely sheerline, round portlights, and dark topsides. Her rakish superstructure, nicely enhanced by the dark accent around the widows, further reduces our perception of bulk.
Carver has always offered a lot of boat for the price, and the C37 continues this tradition.
