Time for a New Carver?

Postby SpaceCowboy » May 15th, 2019, 5:16 pm

My 2006 Carver 42 Super Sport has treated me well, but I think it's time to upgrade to a newer vessel.

Currently, my eyes are set on this beauty:

Is there another model I should consider checking out? Any major issues I should be aware of? I'm doing research on my own but I thought it wouldn't hurt to ask the experts. :captain2:

That sounds awfully cheap for a 2019, 530. Hope it works out for you and welcome.

I don't believe Carver has made a voyager for many years. Soooo, that's definitely not a 2019. Maybe a 1999?
