Vessel Walkthrough and Full specs


The 400 Carver Motoryacht ( Also called the 390/400/404 over her production run from 1993-2003) is a Cockpit version of Carver's 355/356 Motoryachts. Aside from the versatility the cockpits offer, they make great diving or fishing platforms in addition to line handling and easy boarding from the transom. Additionally the cockpit acts as a large trim tab which keeps the bow lower when operating, increasing speed and fuel economy somewhat. The interior is complete and includes 2 heads, a roomy galley, full dinette and double berths in both staterooms.  Big Boat accommodations in a relatively small motoryacht. Additional features include attractive light oak interior woodwork, wide side decks and a well arranged bridge with plenty of guest seating.

Boat is in nice condition, well maintained and clean inside/out. Owned and Maintained by USCG 100Ton Master with Logbooks and Maintenance Records
