This Carver 500 Motor Yacht is an impressive vessel, filled with light and generous living spaces, private and comfortable sleeping arrangements and an aesthetically pleasing interior which all together creates an ambiance that is very soothing and homely. This makes this vessel a particularly attractive and cost-effective option for permanent live aboard. And with the current berth in Hope Island Marina available for the buyer it's an option that is available now. Many boaters would rate Hope Island Marina as the best live-aboard marina in the area and at $975 a month (all-inclusive) represents excellent value for money.
Life aboard would include two double cabins, each with lift up island berths (new gas struts) and lots of storage. The aft full-beam master cabin has access to the rear-covered cockpit as well as a separate shower, vanity and head. A huge saloon incorporates a lounge (electric lift 55-inch smart TV in cabinet), a PC workstation, full boat WiFi, a dining area and a well-equipped galley. Forward of this is the second double cabin with ensuite (combines as the day head), lots of storage and the washing machine and dryer (nicely cabineted). The upper decks are accessed from both the rear cockpit and the saloon. Up from the salon is a glass-enclosed cockpit (mezzanine level) with access to the lower aft cockpit and the side and front decks. This mezzanine area has a new lounge with under seat (4 of) storage, a new stereo system, a bread-maker and a wet bar above the bar fridge. Another couple of steps up to the command bridge which is also fully enclosed with glass and has lots of openings for fresh air. The command bridge (flybridge) is comprehensively equipped and has seating for 8 people. The master has vision all around from the helm seat. This boat has lots of room and is "zoned" so that there is always a quiet place when required.
This vessel is powered by twin Cummins 430 HP "Diamond Series" diesels, ZF gearboxes, and other quality mechanicals including the Glendenning Engine Synchroniser and it is all easily accessed in a very tidy engine room. Note: this boat is dry in the bilges all the time!! So, no mess and smells. Recently fitted new house batteries, upgraded smart charger and a larger inverter have just made this boat even more suited to live aboard by providing a much more robust and functional 240-volt power system. With the new setup, it is easy to run multiple 240 AC appliances at the same time with much of the power coming from the shore power or generator directly and not from the house batteries.
Since listing the vessel for sale the current owners have bought (a fix-er-upper) onshore and are keen to move into the next chapter in their lives. So, why not arrange an inspection and see if life aboard this comfortable and capable cruiser is where you would like your life adventure to take you?
