37 FT 1998 Carver 370

This 1998 Carver has an amazing amount of interior space, it has a comfortable double stateroom forward and another twin stateroom for kids or guests making it a great layout for families.

The 370 Voyager has all the creature comforts of much larger boats but in a smaller package that is easy to handle as well as being less expensive to maintain and moor.

Carver, of course, has been building motor yachts for more than 40 years and, along with companies such as Hatteras, is part of the Genmar conglomerate that is the largest independent manufacturer of recreational powerboats in the world. As such, Carver can draw on a vast resource of technology and experience that is hard to match.

This boat that is unquestionably modern, yet won’t be going out of style like those with more Avant Euro lines. Technically a raised pilothouse design, the 370 has many of the features of a convertible, with a roomy cockpit and a fly bridge designed for entertaining underway or at anchor

The wide swim platform makes getting aboard easy, particularly with the walk-through transom door into the cockpit. There’s a hidden swimming ladder and the transom has mounting pads for davits to carry a dinghy or personal watercraft. This boat has been set up for serious fishing with downriggers and rod holders galore.

Unlike many yachts, the cockpit is large enough for deck chairs or even a sun lounge.  The icemaker located conveniently in the cockpit allows for easy entertaining. Wide steps lead to the side decks, and the combination of non-stop hand rails and the welded stainless-steel bow rail makes the bow easily accessible of course the front deck cushions expand this area for your guests.

A large sliding door not only provides access to the salon but also serves to open the interior to the cockpit on pleasant days. The living area is on two levels: an upper pilothouse and a cockpit-level lounge area. A comfortable sofa is to port and a pair of chairs with a table are to starboard in the lower area, while the large windows provide plenty of visibility while seated. The sofa converts to a double berth for guests, and is a high grade unit that is truly comfortable.

Up a step to pilothouse level, and you’ll find both the galley and a large dinette. With a counter wrapping around the port side, the galley has all the amenities of your home: full-sized upright Norcold refrigerator/freezer, flush-mounted microwave, Princess two-burner electric stove with oven and plenty of stowage space in drawers and lockers. There’s a trash bin cleverly built into the counter top and the round stainless-steel sink maximizes the available counter area for cooking.

Opposite the galley is a dinette large enough for five or six guests that can be converted to another double berth if you have a boatload of guests and, since the entire living area is open from cockpit to forward windows, there is a feeling of space and airiness that makes the 370 seem to be a much larger yacht.

The inside steering station can be used in less than ideal weather. With both air conditioning and heating available, an inside helm makes the 370 Voyager a true all-weather pilothouse cruiser.

Down two steps forward are the living quarters with the master stateroom forward. An island double is on a raised platform with steps on each side and three large drawers underneath. Hanging lockers are to port and starboard, and lockers are on each bulkhead, giving a surprising amount of stowage space.

The port stateroom, with a sliding door to save space, has a double lower berth and a single upper bunk, plus a hanging locker. Opposite is the shared head, which is spacious and bright. There is a  TankWatch system installed to monitor the holding tank. A multi-mirrored medicine cabinet is larger than on most homes and there is also a storage bin under the vanity, giving plenty of storage. One luxury is the large stall shower with molded seat, which is protected from the rest of the head area by a Lucite panel and door, so you don’t feel as though you’re showering in a telephone booth.

Underway, the heart of the boat is likely to be the bridge, which has gently sloped stairs that make access much easier than the usual vertical climb. A lounge wraps around to port, ending in a sun pad behind the windshield, and two beautifully upholstered helm chairs are behind helm console. The dash holds a full array of VDO gauges including engine synchronizer, Sea Star/Teleflex hydraulic steering and this boat has e Fireboy halon system and trim tabs  A hinged chart table (with storage underneath for rolled charts) makes on-bridge navigation easy, and there is ample space for flush-mounted electronics in the dash. Our test boat had the optional aluminum radar arch which combined with Carver’s own Bimini top and enclosures to provide a weatherproof bridge that can be opened up in good weather.

Power for this boat are the 7.2L multiport EFI engines which provide good speed and fuel efficiency.  This boat boat also has a Kohler 6.5 kW generator in the lazarette for providing electrical power away from the dock.

Carver boats are built with all hand-laid fiberglass hull and decks, a vinylester barrier coat on the underwater surfaces to prevent blisters, and an overall excellent fit and finish. Carver builds most of their own components to keep a tight control on quality, including all of the interior furniture, the upholstery, and even the bow rails. Access is good to the systems such as rudder posts and through hulls, and there is ample room to get around the engines for routine maintenance.

Overall this boat has seen excellent maintenance, has always been stored inside and is VERY clean. She is truly a turnkey vessel. She will have all needed cruising gear aboard her at time of sale.
