CARVER BOATS –The Carver 564 Aft Cabin

“Electrically controlled sunroof, profusion of daylight fills the pilothouse to provide for fresh air and sunlight.”

Not only did Carver Company increased its sales outside Great lakes region to become a truly recognized brand and a market leader of the luxury Motoryacht, but this also marked an increase in building vessels with required structural standards. In fact, the Motoryacht became identical with the Carver trademark in the early 1990s.

Today, Carver embarks on the new design; the 56 Motoryacht aft Cabin, a masterpiece that has the comfort and interior space identical to that of a 65-footer. The luxurious Carver 564 Aft Cabin is a boat that bonds on a unique layout; it manages a superior interior room without compromising style, and practicality. Her elevated bridge deck and molded walkways amplify livable space within. She’s quite larger than she appears to be. The 56 houses three different levels for entertaining plus three private staterooms within en suite heads, and all inclusively air conditioned.

Up in the fly bridge area there’s ample seating for up to 9 persons, on the flybridge command center, it incorporates threefold pedestal helm seats, complete with instrumentation and magnificent vision both aft and for. On the roomy aft deck area is a thoughtfully enclosed and air conditioned providing the perfect spot for entertainment or relaxing. There’s a lot of deck

space, hence owners can locate several options for seating space and storage arrangement.

Moving down to another social centre, stairways leads to the aft deck on a spacious salon, which takes benefit of almost the full 15’4” beam, courtesy of side decks which are elevated above the saloon chaise longue. To port is an a L-shaped ultra leather lounge that seats five contentedly while the opposite is an entertainment hub along with a love settee nearby.

Forward to port is a single standing dinning table surrounded by four individual seats – which makes a perfect dinning arrangement for couples or a family of four – of course a very unique feature that you won’t see anywhere else. What’s more, U-shaped partially sunken galley sits opposite the dinning table and it includes; hardtop counter with a dual burner stove, optional coffee maker, microwave oven, a double sink with designer faucet and below refrigerator.

Forward of the salon, guest stateroom welcomes you with its own Island-queen bed, en suite head with vanity and bathe stall, two cedar line wardrobes and storage room. While just aft of the salon is the master stateroom with mirrored ceilings and also features an island pedestal queen berth, luxurious appointments, gorgeous cherry dresser/cabinet and trim and more storage room.

Conveniently, there’s an access to the cockpit via the master stateroom. The cockpit which sports nearly 82 square feet of space, molded boarding steps, a full transom door guides to a large swim platform with space that can house a tender, loads of storage and tidily tucked shore power receptacle.


The Carver 564 Aft Cabin is powered by two Volvo D-12 electronic diesel engines. This engine was mainly designed to cater for faster planning crafts. In fact, the Volvo D-12 diesel engine accompanies an Electronic Diesel Control (EDC) Mechanism – where ignition timing is electronically controlled, thus facilitating more resourceful fuel burning in the cylinders – which best illustrate why at the end of every cruise level; you have a cost effective fuel burn, reduced exhaust emission, and increased power experience.

Moreover, when the Carver 564 is powered and put to plane, the D-12s gets the boat up on plane smoothly, while her engines don’t emit noise or smoke on full throttle burst. That’s the bottom line of a faultless engine and it just suits the 564 perfectly.

The engine itself incorporates; a gear-driven fuel pump, six electronic injectors, freshwater cooled turbo charger and mostly importantly, the electronic engine controls and displays for exact rpm settings and straightforward engine diagnostics.

Yet, the D-12 engine builds up the highest torque at just 1400 rpm to get the larger vessels up and running faster. The Carver is very responsive considering it is a full Motoryacht and less intricate to doc using the bowthruster.

The exchange for the entire interior room is her fairly high freeboard. Her relative elevated freeboard requires caution when the boat is cruising on a fairly heavy weather. Further, two inserts cling to two 8-foot fiberglass rods which stand directly from the edges of the dive platform. Cleverly, docking aids included assist the captain from the helm to have a clear view of the stern – perhaps when reversing into a slip.


The Carver 564 aft Cabin’s top cruising speed is 26.5 mph giving 2000 rpm while burning only 54 gph on the Volvo D-12 675 hp diesel engines. That speed gives an expected cruising range of nearly 290 miles settled on the 510g fuel capacity. However, on full throttle the Carver 564 gives 31.5mph with minimal sound of 75 decibels.

At that speed you could expect a cruising range of almost 290 miles based on the 510-gallon fuel capacity. At full throttle the 564 reached 31.5 mph with a low sound reading of only 75 decibels. As you can see, the Carver 564 Motoryacht incorporates all the features of a 65 foot yacht precisely designed into an effortless run yacht, that will not only please you and your guest but it will also be easy on your pocket as well.
