2000 Carver 356 Aft Cabin Motor Yacht

Mystic, United States


Compression tests in April 2019 indicate a need for two new engines. The marina estimates about $20K for a repower so the asking price has been adjusted to about $30K less than others. Other than the engine issue, this Carver is clean, odor-free and ready to become your 2 BR/2 Bath summer cottage, year-round live-aboard or island cruiser. Full enclosures for the flybridge and deck extend the living-space for three-seasons. Generator, air conditioning with reverse cycle heat, galley with full-size fridge, and plenty of storage all around make this a popular choice for boaters who want all the comforts of home in a smaller footprint.

The Carver 356 is a fantastic two cabin, two head layout with overnight accommodations for six adults. You enter the interior down through the sliding companionway door on the aft deck into the salon. The full beam salon features recessed halogen lighting and beautiful ash woodwork. Large windows create an open, airy atmosphere, with ventilation provided from aft opening side windows. To port, there is a super comfortable, large L-shaped sofa with a chaise. To starboard, there is a built-in entertainment center and a handsome swivel chair.

The dinette is located down one step from the main salon on the starboard side of the boat. There is plenty of room for four adults in the booth style seating. The table drops down and converts into a double berth if needed for additional guests. Across to port is the nicely equipped galley.

The guest stateroom is located forward of the galley. This cabin features an angled double berth with drawer storage underneath, nightstand and separate hanging locker. There are opening ports on both sides of the cabin for light and ventilation as well as an overhead opening hatch which doubles as an exit if needed. This stateroom also offers a private entry to the starboard dual-entry day head, featuring VacuFlush toilet, shower and vanity.

The very spacious, full beam master stateroom is located aft of the main salon. Features include an offset queen berth to port, built-in nightstand, hanging lockers, entertainment center, recessed lighting, opening rear safety hatch, opening portlights and a large, ensuite head with VacuFlush toilet, vanity and separate shower stall.

Manufacturer Provided Description

The Carver 356 Motor Yacht feels like a much larger boat. With its wide 13-foot 3-inch beam, the 356 can easily accommodate a party of eight - and keep them entertained. Below deck, the 356 can sleep eight adults with a master stateroom aft, a convertible dinette, an optional Flexsteel sofa and a complete forward stateroom. The 356 also offers a well equipped galley and entertainment features like the color TV and VCR. There are two head compartments, each with a shower. Topside, the 356's bridge has seating for six, full instrumentation, and plenty of storage. Step down and the entertainment-ready aft deck - with an optional wetbar and icemaker - provides an ideal place for entertaining or relaxing. Add a Euro-style transom with its integral swim platform and staircase, and the 356 becomes as easy to board as a runabout with all of the luxuries of a yacht.
